    Seeking post construction advice

    Regarding insurances...get a blanket waiver for additional insureds and subrogation. Cheaper on the front end. I would base post construction cleaning on coverages between 100 - 350 sf per hour. With a 30% buffer. Windows are extra. Floor waxing extra. Our price includes a scrub on hard...

    Getting ready for my VCT redo with Bonesaw and 3M pads

    Damon, Near furniture, walls/baseboards and appliances, you need to learn how to control your slurry/stripper. Always face the object where you do not want to the stripper to go under and work your 175 to your LEFT. This will work the slurry back to your feet. (Working to the right will throw...

    Getting ready for my VCT redo with Bonesaw and 3M pads

    Learned that the hard way, too! I will never give a price without seeing the floor and doing a test strip. Too many variables that I need to know. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Getting ready for my VCT redo with Bonesaw and 3M pads

    If you are in a rush to detail edges and need to walk through the stripper. Bring stainless steel pot scrubbers with you. It's one long band of coiled stainless steel. Open it and put around your shoes. You will now grip the floors. If you don't wear stripping shoes or rubber boats, use the pot...

    What are you doing to attract the right people?

    Doesn't matter what "work" we perform . We still have to hire the right people. Being at Bloomberg and Goldman Sachs offices in Manhattan, brought things into perspective. Yes, it coincides with SFS teaching but for a company to employ over 20,000 people worldwide and it's head of global HR...

    @alohaone They have to put skin in the game...they want more. They have to put in the work. I have skin in the game. Those are the rules to play on the team. Doing it the other way. Hiring "experienced" but bad people is a game I am no willing to pay anymore. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    How do I attract, interview and hire the right people for the job?

    Nothing special at the moment. But I am looking into ways to invest in them as people. Help them grow. I am constantly learning, growing and evolving. I starting to demand that from my people. I will start a book club in the next 2 months where they will read/listen to a books/audio books on...

    I can see the difference in people I interview now with my different approach to attracting different potential new hires. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
