Building a winning team in Portland


Building a winning team is one of the biggest challenges business leaders face. Today, many businesses in the country are going through hiring pains. Recently, you may have seen a number of news articles that talk about the “great resignation”, which is happening in many industries, most notably services businesses. Our company is aware of this trend even as we look to hire for open positions.

Building a winning team with the right candidate

However, even in this tough hiring environment, we are thoughtful about the talent we bring on board. We prefer candidates who can wear many hats. For example, our route drivers not only deliver the merchandise to customers but also stock the micro-markets. These are two different skill sets a candidate must possess. Furthermore, the candidate we seek must be able eager to learn. They should enjoy working in an environment where the schedule and scope of work can change daily. The candidate should be tech-savvy because our team utilizes several different programs within the company.  Above, all, the candidate must be passionate about providing best-in-class customer service.  Bottom line 一 the candidate should look to improve customer service, processes, and our services no matter what level they are in the organization.
