Timing is the key to confidentially replacing an under performing employee, with an emphasis on confidentially. Depending on the level of management you are replacing, the interview process may take 30 to 90 days. Often this process will take place while the current employee is being challenged to improve during a probationary period.
Have you ever hired a management candidate without checking references? With a tight labor market, there may be a tendency to take short cuts to fill gaping holes, even in key management positions. But that can lead to trouble.
When considering a new hire it is important to compare your company’s job offer with the candidate’s current compensation and benefits, plus the consideration of relocation expenses. If you are intending to attract currently employed management candidates with substantial years of successful laundry industry experience you need to minimize economic discrepancies.
Are you an owner operator with a good management candidate living hours away, or a VP of Operations in a multi plant organization thinking about promoting and transferring a successful employee? Perhaps you're contemplating moving to a different part of the country for career or family needs.
