One of the biggest problems companies who have hourly employees always experience is walk-offs. Turnaround is something every business has to deal with at one time or another, but if you are dealing with it consistently, then it may be time to change a few things.
The person hiring the staff is not hiring people who actually want to be there. If the new hire doesn't want the job they are hired for then there won't be much to keep them there.
When the employee shows up for their first shift, the supervisor does not try to connect with them. They essentially insult them and/ or ignore them until they see that this person sticks around, which they probably won't.
Another thing that happens often is that your new employee is thrown into a group of other employees who don't like working there. So now, not only is this new hire getting treated poorly by your supervisor, but they are also only hearing bad things from their new co-workers.
These are all very real and common reasons as to why hourly employees walk off the job. What it comes down to is that something in your business turned them off; you might think that it was the employment agency, and in some cases, you could be right.
Many staffing firms just file bodies through so that you have someone, but at Champion, we take the time to understand both the company and the candidate. That way, no one is wasting their time working for or with someone that they don't want to be working with.
