      A recent study, done by Harvard Business School, concluded that the real problem with attracting and retaining employees has more to do with the workplace environment, not pay or benefits. While the study did find that an adequate pay plan and offering an attractive benefits package did help with recruiting and retention, it’s not enough to satisfy the needs of employees, especially those of front-line workers.
      The study also stated that in 2021, many companies were convinced that giving raises, sign-on bonuses, and other perks would solve the worker shortage problem and prevent people from quitting. However, this strategy did not work. So, what does work regarding attracting quality people and keeping them employed?
      Essentially, it all comes down to the culture of your company.  Management: do all it can to consider the individual needs of your employees. Your employees want to feel that they have a voice, that their opinion counts, and that their role in your company is both respected and recognized. Yes, pay and a great benefits package will go a long way toward making your employees feel secure, but that’s only financial security. People want more than money.
      To attract and keep top talent requires creating a company that people feel proud to work for. You need to reach the hearts and minds of your employees. Become a leader that people are enthusiastic about working for. You want your employees bragging to their friends and family that your shop is a great place to work!
      Step one to attracting and retaining quality employees: Create an amazing workplace environment for your employees!  Trust me, happy employees make happy shop owners too!

      I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice Just like your office door needs a ramp and bathroom needs handrails, your website needs to be able to be viewed by those with vision and hearing impairments This is not just total blindness and deafness but any impairments including colorblindness, poor vision, and hard of hearing. There are 2 main reasons you need your website to be ADA compliant The number of lawsuits happening It’s the right thing to do What makes a website ADA compliant? Over 100 factors Most important factors are: Skip nav Image alt text Proper heading structure Labels on form fields Contrasting colors Clear, easy to read fonts Descriptive link text Subtitles on videos We use a free plugin with some nice features I won’t guarantee a website ADA compliant Do the basics and you’re probably good to go.

      One of our listeners emailed in with the following question.
      I Always wondered why, when we have another marketing company review and grade our website, it always come out pretty crappy on the scorecard? From loading speed, to keywords, SEO, overall performance etc. I have used Lighthouse and some other things to gauge the performance, but the numbers never seem to match what the other party produces. I feel like some marketing companies use smoke and mirrors for selling their websites that really may not be any better than what we already have. I’m sure this is an issue for others too.
      We answer that question in this episode.
      Talking Points
      There’s a big difference between a solicited audit and an unsolicited audit There are no standards in place Much of what is done in marketing is based on opinion or an internal belief system Trust your “BS meter”
