So rather than looking for others to solve the problem for you, what you need to do is start an apprenticeship program and develop your own superstar techs...

No Rehire Policies

Cell Phone Policies

When your employees come to work in the morning, you’re entitled to expect them to be “thinking” about their job as well as doing it.
