Instead of Trying to Make People Nice, Just Hire Nice People
Workplace cohesion is the key to a thriving business. Malta Dynamics’ CEO Damian Lang believes that obstacles to success surround one primary problem – people problems. As a result, he has adopted the following strategy: “We don’t try to make people nice; we just hire nice people.”
Damian recognizes that it is difficult to pinpoint personality traits and a genuine ability to be nice during the interview process; however, working with the people in your organization and trying to fix the situation can help – or, it may lead to removing individuals who are toxic.
In this month’s Contractor Tip, Damian identifies questions and answers about conflict that can help change the dynamics of a jobsite and get everyone back to doing the job at hand.
A Few Key Points:
- Do you have the right boss on the jobsite?
- Is everyone on the same page?
- Are you holding after-hours activities?
- Are you hiring nice people?
