Why Millennials Will Be Your Best Employees

We hear it all the time – Millennials don’t want to work, they are lazy, entitled, and expect a paycheck just for showing up. Sorry, but we have had a different experience. In fact, what we know about Millennials is what countless successful business leaders know – and are using to power their multi-million dollar blue collar empires. Curious? Join us to learn more! (Warning: there will be no old people whining allowed.)

How to Attract, Hire, and Retain Rockstar Employees

Contrary to popular belief, there are PLENTY of people out there who want a great job with a great company. But the question is – Are you offering a great job? Are you really a great company? Join us to learn exactly what it takes to build the kind of business that attracts and keeps rockstar employees!

Because I Said So! (And Other Ways You Are Sabotaging Yourself)

Our fathers said it, and so did yours. But why doesn’t this new generation of workers respond to this reasoning? Why must you explain every task and every decision to them? Why can’t they just do what they are told? Not only can we shed light on that important distinction, but we can demonstrate exactly why it’s in your best interest to lead this generation of employees in a totally new way, and how to start doing it today.

Why Us?

We're so excited to be considered for your event, and we know you won't be disappointed with what we can bring to your stage. For the past three years, we've spoken to hundreds of audience members about culture, hiring, and employee retention, and the importance of those topics has never faded for us. We believe that it takes just as much blood, sweat, and tears to build a business that you hate as it does to build a business that you love, and having the right people working with you makes all the difference. 

As business owners we have decades of experience really drilling down to understand the heart of the "skills gap" and other hiring problem myths. We've made hiring mistakes and learned from them, we've seen the struggles our clients go through with employee turnover and retention, and we've learned from our own employees what keeps them engaged in their work. As podcast hosts and authors we take our content seriously. We know we have to provide value to our listeners, readers, and your audience. We want everyone who comes in contact with us to leave feeling in control of their company's future and with a ready-to-implement plan for a business they're proud to own.  


Hear What Past Attendees Have Said

Fantastic job Carter and Taylor. You're always thought provoking and drilling down to why things are the way they are. Please keep it up, it's what our industry and the blue collar industry needs. We need to think more. This industry is full of a lot of do-ers – it's great to stop and think a little bit. Thank you for bringing that piece of the puzzle to us. 

Chuck Hall, Winston's Chimney Service

I always knew there was a problem in the back of my mind. I just didn't know how to articulate it. It starts with culture. They are absolutely right. In the past, we've looked for skillsets and toughness, but I think we should be starting with how people fit in our culture. I also noticed what culture means to them in their own business. They are very proud of what they've accomplished with their own company. It was an eye opener.
