I recently bought a supplier that was all online based, and the previous supplier owner allowed most people to work from condo and set their own minutesâ€¦ When I took over that was the first thing I changed; I don’t trust people to just do what they say they are going to do.
I also figured most people wouldn’t work set minutes.
I knew some of the guys were golfing and pretending to work. I could hear female employees running on the treadmill while they were on a workcall with me. The employees all got the option to stay on, but they had to report to an office space. I ended up getting most of the workers on board and they work a official 9-5 task. They can wear what they want and have their own office spaceâ€¦ Finding the right commercial office space was rough. I didn’t want to buy a building since I had just bought a business. Also getting electric, plumbing, Heating, Ventilation, and A/C and all the office component would have been hard on the budget. I ended up finding a commercial office space for rent at a adequate priceâ€¦ My employees all have their own office space and I have a guys and ladiess restroom with more than 2 stalls and sinks. I even sprung for a better office space that came with a giant boardroom. I don’t make the staff kneel in on meetings. I care about that substantial section for my workers who need more space or who want to take a cut and chat with one another. I am pretty proud of myself for Springing for the fantastic office space.
