Sneak peek: Training and HR manuals

without comments

“We had what we thought was a training program and a set of procedures, but until you sit down and evaluate that…. We realized we had inconsistencies with each position because we didn’t have those job descriptions written down on paper. One guy wanted to do the job this way, another wanted to do it another way.”

You can read more from Fred and other contractors in our forthcoming August issue.
