Welcoming Allison: Our New MSC!
Working at SERVPRO provides room for opportunity, growth, and personal connection. Even within a short amount of time, new employees can witness an atmosphere of diversity and respect shown throughout the various SERVPRO locations, as well as a degree of flexibility.
According to Forbes article “3 Benefits of Diversity in the Workplace,” having a diverse workforce produces higher financial returns, expands a customer market, and promotes professional growth. To a potential employee, this implementation of inclusion is essential. It was even reported that one in three job seekers would not apply to a company that does not seem diverse. SERVPRO recognizes this importance and makes sure to impose and support a code of diversity and inclusion.
Today, prospective employees seek jobs that respect their time, salary, and work-life balance desires. Gone are the days of new employees putting in extra work for an underpaid wage in hopes of one day getting promoted. Interviewees are now making their expectations and values clear to employers from the start.
A study in a recent Forbes article “To Lure Workers, Companies Are Giving New Employees Their First Weeks Off, Speeding Up Retirement Plan Access—And Piling On The Cash,” noted that 20% of companies in a survey “were using sign-on bonuses more than before the pandemic” to incentivize employees to onboard.
A company in the article even requested workers to take a “recharge day” each month to promote a positive work-life balance. SERVPRO offers a sign-on bonus for many positions to keep up with these changes and notices the desires of future applicants such as a flexible schedule, valuable benefits, and a fair pay rate.
