TODAY'S TIP IS SPONSORED BY GOLDSTEIN DIAMONDS

YOUR TIP FOR OCTOBER 28, 2011


[h3]Stay in touch with your retired former employees. [/h3]

WHY? Everyone needs extra part-time help around the holidays. Who better to hire than someone who’s already fully trained and knows your store?

HOW? Keep in touch with birthday cards and invitations to store events. You might even consider hiring them during events throughout the year, or any other time you know you’ll need extra help. Houston Jewelry’s Rex Solomon triples his staff for the holidays by hiring back retired staff.
