Ok taken

Why don't you try spiffs.

Give them insentive adding to their pay.

Bonuses would be the word.

More quality work generated, more money in both of your pockets.

I worked at Sears a long time ago and got spiffs on installing products on cars. After a while I got stuck fixing what others had messed up, After a little while I aksed who got the spiff money from fixing others boo boo's. The original machanic. That changed quickly after no one would fix any problems that came back.

So if you did pay spiff they should go to the person who prefomed the job correctly.

As far as percentages, I have no clue. I would like to find out myself after trying to incorperate this myself, but failed.

Does that help?

Welcome to lawn site. We have fun here and exchange Ideas. We don't all ways agree but we respect each others input. The nice thing about lawn site is that people from all over the world can and do read the words we write. Including your next door nieghbor. In the upper right hand corner is the seach feature and you can type in a topic and all posts on that subject are aviable. I found lawn site back in sept and the info here has not only helped make money but saved me over a thousand dollars from just one post about equipment repair (thanks Captdevo).

I have recieved many E-mails and private posts in the last couple days about my equipment. If you are interested I would recomend that you try and find a 10 speeded mountain bike and a 4 gallon back pack. I think it will double production. If you would like you may contact me about this Equipment. I am a sole owner.

it is one thing to do a off label applications. It is total stupidity to post it on the world wide web and expect people to approve.
