5 Ways to Encourage Recycling in Your Ocala Home
You already know that recycling is a great way to help the environment, but are you wondering where to start? Like many great habits, this one begins at home. Read on as we share five simple ways to encourage recycling in your Ocala home.
Office Safety
Every employee has a part to make the company successful. If the business is successful, it is better shared among employees. It makes them buy in and want to be there.
Reducing Distracted Driving Incidents/ Accidents/Near Misses
As our world and roads become harder to navigate, minimize the distractions that you can control.
An Evolving Industry
2017 brought some changes that will continue to influence the way the waste and recycling industry evolves.
Effectively Using Social Media
If managed properly, social media can be used as a tool to promote your company, even from your toughest critics.
Image is Everything
Taking pride in your equipment and people has many advantages that are worth it.
Taking on the Summer Heat
Preventative is the key word when you are faced with the summer heat.
Promoting from Within or Hiring from Outside the Company: Deciding which is the Best Option
Deciding to fill open positions is never an easy one; there are always costs and risks associated with it. If you have the ability to hire and fire, someone has the faith in you that you know what pieces of the puzzle are needed to execute the task properly.
Chapters of the Garbage Man
With a diverse customer base, it is very important to always put every customer first. Serving every customer with this mindset will allow you to grow a successful business that can be measured further than your profit margin.
Managing an Aging Fleet
Reliability has nothing to do with the age of the truck; it lies in the skill of the operator and maintenance program in place. A new truck, not maintained, could and will cause more headaches than “old Betsy”. Manage your fleet and they will stick around; ignore them and they will ignore you.
Culture Shock
No day in our business goes as planned. Be ready to adapt and overcome obstacles when they come your way. Educate your employees new and old on what you expect from them.
Employee Satisfaction
Get to know your staff and develop your own formula for motivation.
2016 Comes to a Close
Good or bad, get ready to hit the ground running in 2017.
Accident/Incident? Now What?
Having a strict training program, well developed and in-tune maintenance and HR staff, as well as organized staff meetings to address and brainstorm causes and preventative measures to learn from, can help avoid accidents from reoccurring in the future.
Embrace the Technology
Giving some attention to social media and video/photo documentation is just a piece of the technological puzzle that you too can use to promote and make the industry safer one company at a time.
Diversity Across the Industry
Being able to converse with each other, allows haulers to learn and see where everyone’s struggles are currently.
Educating the Public
As our trucks, technology and other waste products evolve to be more efficient, we must evolve our practices to be more efficient as well.
Monday Morning Motivations
Addressing accidents or near misses immediately is a solid plan. Addressing an issue days later, serves no purpose to correcting a problem. Take action once all facts are gathered and create a plan for prevention.
Company Wide Involvement
Be sure to get everyone involved. Safety truly is everyone’s job.
Increase Your Employees’ Education
Increasing every employee’s knowledge in our industry is a direct benefit to an improved safety record and communication. When the left-hand knows what the right hand is doing, plans can better materialize and come to fruition.
Recruitment at Every Level
We need to change the image of the waste and recycling industry and make the career choice attractive to younger recruits before it is too late.
