Episode 33: Benefiting from staff absences

This is something that even the legendary Tom Brady can appreciate and that he has actually used over the course of his career. If you want to know a little bit more about what it is, make sure you listen to this episode. The man was willing to sacrifice half of his salary over this thing so it’s obviously a big money hack.

Sick leave, annual leave, holiday pay, leave without pay, injury, training, maternity leave, bereavement leave, vacation, public service, are all reasons that a staff member might be away from work. The more you grow your team, the more you’re going to find staff taking time away from your business. You need to be proactive with how you manage staff being away from your business and make sure it’s not just you stepping in trying to do everyone’s job, because your job isn’t going anywhere.

In this episode you’ll learn about having employees away from your business and how to handle it. You’ll also learn about the brightness of future concept and how it helps with staff retention, staff engagement, and making it easy to cover someone when they are away. You’ll also learn about the 3 benefits to building a bench (number 3 will save you at least 2 hours every week). If you are proactive with this area of your Plumbing, Electrical, Landscaping, or similar service based trades/construction/subcontracting business, it will make life a lot easier, and will change the way your business runs.

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN FROM IMPLEMENTING TODAYS PODCAST:

  • An understanding of the brightness of future concept
  • Better staff retention and customer service in your business
  • Less stress for you as the owner when it comes to covering someone who is away
