Doesn't anybody want to work any more?

Doesnt anyone want to work anymore? (A common cry heard round the C-Suite.) The fact is: No, not really. At least it doesnt seem like it. And yes, there are many who still do. The tight candidate market is to blame for the apparent availability of lesser-motivated people. Tie the politics of socialist leanings into that, and the word EARN has been eroded from our popular vocabulary. No political or social evangelist even comes close to talking about EARNING or living to be ACCOUNTABLE. So where are the good ones? Come along for our ride and well show you how to dig under the rocks and what to do once you have found them: Where are the good ones? They are right in front of you. In front of us. Champion specializes in the shop floor, distribution, office, and technical talent acquisition. We interview more people in one week than the typical HR Pro interviews in a year. We get our best candidates from personal referrals. Good people tend to know or hang with, other good people.

Champion has dealt with over 12,000 Northeast Ohio organizations over the last 55 years. We analyze each workplace. We have purposely met with over 500 owners/ executives/ HR professionals to discover what the best do to create and maintain great workplaces/ great places to work. We even wrote a book about it: The Great Workplace 2.0, with 15,000 copies in circulation. And we have produced a precise list of the efforts the best organizations make to energize their profits by Hiring with Purpose. You will find some of this at your next luncheon seminar or by asking your temp agency why you have turnover that is irritating. But you will not find the knowledge we have accumulated and will share with you here. We are not just a temp agency. We do what we do to help you grow, produce a profit and to retain a staff that you can be proud of. A short list of the secrets we have discovered: 1) Have a core list of Organizational Values: What do you stand for? What do you really do, how and

I am an hourly worker. Want me to be productive and stick around?

Before hiring understand the worker mentality: Im an Hourly Worker. Want me to be productive and stick around? Im just like you: I want to make it to tomorrow and have that day be a little better than today. I want to survive, maybe even thrive. HELP me do that. Dont lie to me. Not in the interview, not the first day on the job, never. I am street smart and can tell a lie or liar a mile away. I may not tell you that I know you are telling me something that isnt true or is skewed to fool me, Ill just give you less than my best, and leave when I can. I dont need a job where I get lied to and where people think that it makes them smart. Take the time to train me. You said you would. It is one of the reason I decided to work for you. SHOW me how to be good, not just go through the motions. Train me to be safe. Ill get it. Then once I have shown I can do that job and be productive, train me to do more. Assign me to someone who is a real person, a person who cares. Industrial companies have
