HireBetterNow was formed in 2001 to make The HireBetterNow Hiring System™, which was developed by Charles J Brand, available to contractors all over the North America. His bio is as follows:
Charles J. Brand is a CPA and an attorney. He is a partner in the Newton New Jersey law firm of Dolan & Dolan, P.A. He has over 20 years of experience managing a family owned fuel and HVAC company. He developed The HireBetterNow Hiring System™ to solve an acute technician hiring problem in his own company. This program has been used by HVAC companies around the country to find, hire and train technicians and other employees too.
For years Griffith Energy did what the rest of the industry did to get qualified technicians. We advertised in local newspapers and tried to attract people from other companies. What we found was that we were hiring the problem guys that the other companies were glad to get rid of. And it didn't take long after they were hired to find out why they were available in the first place. The newspapers didn't attract the kind of people were looking for either.
After instituting The HireBetterNow Hiring System™ the first thing that happened is that we began to attract a broader group of applicants than ever before. Then we used the screening tests to find out if they had the attributes we were looking for before hiring them. We tested for mechanical ability before making an investment in someone only to find they didn't have the acumen to learn the skill in the first place. Needless to say the screening methods have made a huge difference in our ability to hire good employees the first time.
Another benefit derived from the program is our present employees now see we have a way to hire people at will. The attitudes have changed now that they know they can be replaced I they don't perform to our standards. What a difference that makes in running our business successfully.
I highly recommend The HireBetterNow Hiring System™ to any company looking to hire good people on an on going basis.Randy Groft for Griffith Energy Services, Inc.
For many years Abbott & Mills used the trial and error method for hiring employees. We were successful about fifty percent of the time. Usually we hired two people with the hopes of keeping one. I'm sure I don't have to explain how costly that can be and when you add training the technician the cost escalates considerably. We knew we needed to make a change but had no idea what direction to go. I read books and searched the internet but found nothing focused on our industry.
When we were approached by The HireBetterNow Hiring System™ I was skeptical. I didn't believe there was any method that would make it possible to hire good people consistently. After the program was explained to us we made a decision to give it a try. We needed to hire two service technicians and put the plan into practice. We followed the program, step-by-step, and achieved 100% success. The two technicians we hired are with us 2 ½ years and have been model employees.
Since then we hired two additional service technicians, an apprentice and three drivers. All have been winners from day one. I can't even guess how much money HireBetterNow.com has saved us with this unique hiring method. Thank you for a wonderful program that has made my job much easier.Nella Mills-Mahoney for Abbott & Mills
