How to Keep Employees Happy
In today’s episode Mike chats with Alex Sherman from Eco Friendly Maid Service about how to keep employees happy.
MIke starts off with tackling the fallacy that if you pay your employees more you will get a better employee.
BONUS TIP: Moving from 10-12 dollars won’t get you a better standard of employee.
Hear why Mike hates Health Insurance and what you can do to make your employees happy and healthy.
We all know with health insurance you end up hemorrhaging cash and they hate you for it because it’s always worse than they would get by themselves.
If you don’t spend money on health insurance you can put money time and effort into better ways to keep them happy
Another great idea are Books - Give them a Kindle after 60 days for free and say you will pay for any book they buy.
These ideas make your 10/hr commodity job into an irreplaceable job.
Mike then goes into Referral programs to get more of your best employees.
BONUS TIP: Your best employees hang out with your other best employees!
Definitely don’t be afraid to screen and segregate who your best employees are - find out where they hang out and advertise there for more employees.
