Tip: To attract the best in your area, consider offering performance-based incentives to sweeten your offer.
Tip: While employee time & scheduling apps log worker hours and breaks, a cloud-based solution can reveal trends in overtime, hiring gaps and other factors, allowing you to make adjustments that can positively affect profitability.
Tip: To encourage on-time payments, charge interest or add a late-fee clause to your contracts.
Tip: Another idea is to limit the retainage fee to certain areas of the project, such as labor. That way, the percentage held back is lower.
