Keeping a clean and organized storefront is important for business. Customers expect that everything including the floors, windows, and doors are in the cleanest state. If they are not, they are unlikely to return. Additionally, many customers expect the parking lot and streets leading up to the storefront to also be clean and free of any debris. Keeping the parking lot and streets clean is harder to do than keeping the interior clean.
Call the city for additional cleaning
Some storefronts are situated on city property. If this is the case with your commercial storefront, road sweeping services may be included in the cost of your rent. If your storefront rent or commercial business is located in an area that includes city cleaning, you can call them for additional cl

The fall is the perfect time to plan work retreat facilitation. Summer vacations are out of the way and many businesses are heading into their busy season. Give your employees the extra boost of productivity with work retreat facilitation.
Work retreats create stronger relationships

Picture this: It’s a Friday night and you’re typing away at your computer, again. You’ve spent hours upon hours over the course of the past week applying for every and any job that sparks your interest. You think to yourself “I’ve applied for so many positions and nothing is working out. Why can’t I find a job?”
It’s no secret that getting a job can be stressful. You go through interview after interview with the hope of making a solid impact that will land you the position of your dreams. Some may find this task to be easy. However, that isn’t always the case.
If this sounds like you, working with temp agencies may be the way to go. Temp agencies can help those looking for a job find a position without all of the personal legwork.
Now, we know what you may be thinking. Many people fear that they won’t be able to find a stable, permanent job while working with temp agencies. For those concerned, it should be a relief to know that many temp agencies tend to focus on temp-to-hire staffing. This means you would start off having a temp job, which would one day turn permanent.
Working with an employment agency can help potential employees get their names out to potential employers. These employers look to the agencies to find people searching for temp jobs. Business owners are focused on the success and growth of their company, so they’re always looking for people to help them achieve their goals.
So, how can you become successful in finding a job with the help of a temp agency? Here are a few tips:
Do Your Research
All temp agencies aren’t the same. Look for one that specializes in helping those in the field of work you want to be in.
You will look good if you have a strong resume and cover letter. When you are applying to work with a temp agency, they will require you to submit those documents.
Once they have received what they need from you, you may be asked to attend an interview with the agency so they can learn more about you. This helps them to see which companies may be a good fit for you.
If you are asked to submit to an interview, make sure you dress for success so that those working to help you find a placement know you’re serious.
Once that interview process is complete, your agency will begin looking for potential positions that best fit your needs, wants and personality. Companies will hopefully begin to reach out to your agency and request you for an interview. If you are offered a position, your agency will then negotiate pay and hours so you don’t have to.
If you aren’t getting any interviews, it might be time to sit down with your agency to see what you can do. They may be willing to help you go over your interview skills, your resume, etc.
Temp services want you to succeed, so stay positive and know that those weeks of spending hours upon hours of applying for jobs will soon be far behind you.
