The October 2015 issue of Cleanfax magazine featured an article entitled The Warm Body Syndrome. Warm Body Syndrome can be defined as the practice of hiring a warm body to get a job done, without much thought as to who the body belongs to. This article, written for business owners, begins with this question: “How many times over the years have you allowed yourself and your company to hire someone because they had a pulse and were breathing?” It goes on to explain why and how employers should conduct background checks on potential employees.
Background checks are good things and every responsible business owner should already be conducting them. My questions to potential clients is: Why take a chance when you don’t have to?
Don’t be a victim of Warm Body Syndrome!
Do business with a small company like mine:
- Small businesses like my own are more flexible, personal, passionate. and straight-forward.
- We are less likely to harm the environment.
- We’re more likely to be cater to our locale.
- We are more aware of and in control of our energy costs and less likely to engage in wasteful practices.
- Another advantage of small business over national ones is the possibility of ensuring satisfaction. I chose to remain small because that is the only way that I can insure top quality work at each and every job.
- The only training that can make up for over twenty years of experience is over twenty years of experience! I do all of my work myself.
- When you chose my company, you know that “the buck stops here.” I am responsible for every service that I perform for you and will never try to pass responsibility off to someone else. I like it this way because it allows me to take 100% of the credit for a job well done.
- I care enough to go the extra mile to earn your repeat business and referrals.
- I have excellent customer testimonials and published reviews to prove it.
- And, I’m 100% immune to Warm Body Syndrome.
Could you say the same for the warm bodies that other companies send to your home or business?
