Kevin Montney, director of human resources and compliance, on changes to recruitment:
"Our recent focus has been twofold:
We have worked hard to establish relationships with local tech schools to find technicians, and we have been using our online partnerships to be more targeted in our recruiting efforts."
Montney on rewarding employees and showing them they are valued:
"We offer a large number of team appreciation events: an annual rewards ceremony, a kickoff event with a well-known motivational speaker and a Milwaukee Brewers tailgate event complete with tickets to the game for our team and their families."
Montney on helping employees develop a career path:
"We like to identify bright, hardworking team members who we believe to be a good fit for our culture and ask them about their plans. We then try to encourage them to consider a long-term career with us and offer training and mentoring to help them achieve their goals."
Montney on making work schedules more balanced or flexible:
"We schedule two days off every week and stagger the in and out times of our team."
Montney on compensation:
"With a tight market, we have focused on keeping our pay extremely competitive. We feel that our great work environment combined with competitive pay sets us apart from the competition."
