Are you staff making a living wage through winter months?

If your staff are not making a living wage all winter long, chances are they will be looking for employment elsewhere. This can be challenging during winter months when you are reliant on snow events to provide them with hours. You’re going to need to get creative.

Can you work on a banked hours system through the summer? They wouldn’t make overtime but the banked hours could top up their pay throughout the winter months.

What about the SUB program we chatted about briefly at the end of last week? Look into it and see if your staff are eligible for it. You can read more about it HERE.

Can you set up an on-call schedule in advance (like some of our clients do) so that your staff know in advance when it’s their turn to watch the weather as opposed to being on-call all season long?

What about offering them new or late model equipment, training, employee events during the winter to maintain culture, regular communication? Whatever you do in the summertime for your staff - bbq’s, weekly staff meetings, etc., continue in the winter months (we know it’s harder to schedule, but it’s worth it!).

Don’t forget to continue recruiting and training your staff (snow training days, mock snowfall, individual 1-on-1 training with the manager, etc.).

Do you have a lot of this in place already? If you don’t, but you’d like to, shoot me a dm or email me [email protected]
