When we discuss the labor shortage, we are often talking about how to find or develop good talent.
What we are now hearing from our Roundtables members is that they are finding people, getting them on the team, and then they fail. In many cases, these aren’t catastrophic failures, but slips in Net Profit or schedules or proper estimates, etc.
We can write this off to “they misrepresented themselves” during the interviews. Or, we can take a closer look at our own onboarding process to ensure we are setting our new hires up for success, not failure.
To dive deeper on this topic, Tim and Steve welcome Chris Beck to the show to talk about how he and his team at Normandy Remodeling handle the onboarding process.
Chris has been with Normandy Remodeling in Hinsdale, IL for 14 years; eight as a Superintendent, two as the Production Manager and four as Director of Production. Normandy has added five Superintendents over the past five years to cover increased production and they are on pace to set another annual Produced Sales record, their 5th year in a row.

- Documentation and checklists.
- Adjustments to the process due to the current pandemic.
- And more…
