Finding good eggs
Where do you find top talent – people willing to work hard in challenging conditions? Alex Fransen says labor pains are the biggest obstacle the company faces as it grows. “We could grow so much this year, but we are not going to over-promise and under-deliver, and finding employees is our biggest hurdle,” he says.
Fransen knows he's not alone in this struggle. So far, word of mouth has been the most successful recruiting method. “We have gained a lot of respect from our customers, and they go out of their way to tell friends and family about our services, so that helps us hire people,” he says.
