You may have heard the old saying:  "Management is easy except for the people part."

It seems that just about every day in the business world, we have a growing number of requirements related to our work force. Whether it's healthcare, unemployment, extended leaves, harassment policies or simply new hires, we need to stay on top of ever-changing rules. That's in addition to ensuring customer satisfaction, reasonable margins, and staying current with all the city, county, state and federal regulations.

Our company has more than 50 employees and thus we fall under a number of federal guidelines. Not all of you have this requirement. But no matter how many employees you have, there is necessary work that takes away from what we all try to do best:  Provide the best possible service to our customers. If you're like me, you can use some help!

Topics also include:

  • Looking "outside" for help
  • How the hiring process works
  • Saves time, keeps us compliant

A speeding violation can cost your company more than a ticket

A buddy of mine consistently drives over the speed limit. I recall often hearing him say: “I’ll take my chances. If I get caught I’ll just pay the ticket and move on. Besides, I have a radar detector! ”Well, unbeknown to him, the state police recently received new laser speed guns that are not picked up by most radar detectors. One day, they clocked him going 75 mph in a 55 mph speed zone. Needless to say, the state trooper who stopped my friend issued him a ticket. I’m sure the fact the radar detector was in plain sight put the trooper in a less than forgiving mood. Because he was traveling 20 mph over the speed limit, my friend incurred fines and court costs totaling $350.00, plus four points against his license. I’m sure his insurance costs went up, too. My friend does not work for an EASA service center. That’s the good news. But his experience brings to mind the many costs that could affect a service center if he did work for one.
