One day Albert Einstein wrote on the board:

We need to figure out why so we can address the problem and become an attractive company and bring in some incredible people.
Forbes put out an article for leaders to consider.
Here are some takeaways:
Staffing is an incredible burden to the restoration industry as a whole. But we can take solace in the fact that it's an epidemic and it is not sparing anyone, especially blue collar industries.
We actually did a podcast on this subject. It is definitely one of the most popular episodes to date. It is titled “I got 99 problems, and staffing is one”.
We talk with restoration companies every single day, and we hear the same thing from everyone in every corner of the country:
Its the same story!
What do we do?
Everyone is tired of hearing culture and money is the solution.
But the truth is, these are big factors. The companies that we see thriving in this tumultuous time are companies that are paying well, and...
