First you claim you have 150,000 employees and revenue of 5.5 Billion in which it will double in the next few years according to you. If you paid the employees $12 an hour and all full time and you have 150,000 employees that is a payroll of a little over 3.7 billion so that leaves you with 1.8 billion. But your average employee makes about $9 and hour and about a third are part time. This would probably put 3 billion back to you. So your biggest problem is underpaying your employees and getting the bottom of the barrel talent. So stop putting all the money in your pocket and give it to the people that make your business.

Honestly would say relate to your employees more. You losing alot of good workers because they feel that there is no growth career wise or getting better pay to provide for there families. Better communication is needed and moral needs to be improved. Allied to me is just a pay check that can be made elsewere to me. People leave because there burnt out and the pay nore accomplishments are respected in the area that im currently working at. Im thankful to have a job. But if most of my week is coming to work i would like to see added benefits for the effort and good that i do here to be honest.

Continuing Training in administrative functions and involvement therein. A security assignment does not mean only showing up for work and performing a brain dead monotonous job which is a MAIN reason for RESIGNATIONS . Being involved in the administrative end of the job WILL help Officers see the overall PURPOSE of the job, have A PURPOSE, and greatly help in EMPLOYEE RETENTION. SHARING in these tasks will develop RESPONSIBILITY. Too many Officers do not have a sense of responsibility. The feel caught in an endless cycle of monotonous work. Supervisors and Managers MUST be willing to EDUCATE and the HOLD ACCOUNTABLE afterwards. Accountability to adhere to standards upheld after training. Too many Officers have the mindset "this is not my job" Officers have to receive and be willing to PARTICIPATE and ASSIST in day to day upkeep of client materials. Officers must be held accountable to be able to READ and WRITE at the HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL that the indicated they possess when applying for the job. If an officer doesn't demonstrate the willingness to actually WORK, they should be dismissed. Too many officers come to work but don't DO any work. Many times Supervisors are not willing to take the TIME to further train and INVOLVE their subordinates. Once again, a "not my job " mentality. WILLINGNESS on everyone's part. WILLINGNESS has to start at the top down and be within the MISSION STATEMENT.

Instead of having the managers handle accounts, payroll, scheduling and dispatch, they should higher someone to handle the scheduling and dispatch so that the managers aren't overwhelmed with all the work.
