Culture in the Workplace:

A positive workplace culture improves teamwork, raises morale, increases productivity and efficiency, and enhances retention in the workforce. Learn how setting the right culture is vital to a company’s success.

Train the Trainer:

When you hire someone, you want to train them, but do you know what you want to train them? Is it how to operate a sweeper, your culture, your customers, or your systems? If your answer was yes, then before you can train an employee, you must train your trainer. The trainer could be the owner of the company, a shop manager, or a current staff member. In this session we will cover some of the things that you’ll want to make sure your trainer knows before you have them train your new employees.

Cole Watts, More Clean of Texas, NAPSA President
