2. GIVE NEW HIRES THE CHANCE TO GROW. The best employees constantly hunger for new growth and development opportunities. Show prospective hires the potential heights they can reach at your organization. First, your business has to have a growth mindset that promotes loyal employees and empowers them to step into exciting new roles. Then you need to present prospective employees with challenging, rewarding projects and responsibilities and show examples of how those who’ve come before them have succeeded. Annual reviews and raises are a start, but you should also explain how a job at your business will improve your prospect’s skills, career, and life. 3. GET THEM IN THE DOOR. If you already offer a legitimately competitive salary, an expansive benefits package, and a good work environment with opportunities for growth, the only challenge left is to get on your ideal candidate’s radar. One of the best ways to do this is to implement an employee referral program. Ask your team if they know anyone who’d fit the empty role. If you end up hiring their prospect and they stay on the team for, say, six months, then reward the referrer. Cash, PTO, and other benefits will encourage your loyal employees to bring in their skilled friends. CERAM-A-STAR 1050 Paint looks great when it’s freshly applied, but after enduring a few years of Michigan’s snowy winters and summer heat, the color fades, losing its original luster. Heat, moisture, and UV radiation all contribute to the coating’s wear and tear. However, the coating we use is proven to last longer due to its unique mixture. More than 40 years of testing and case studies make CERAM-A-STAR 1050 the best coating on the market for our area. If you look through our projects, the original color still looks great. The makers of CERAM-A-STAR 1050, AkzoNobel, have found that many buildings in South Florida — a climate known to be harsh for metal roofs — hold their color for over 10 years. At Central Michigan Roofing, we want to make sure you have the highest quality product, the fastest service, and the best prices around. With coatings like CERAM-A-STAR 1050, we’re able to make sure that the metal we use is ready to stand the test of time. Give us a call today to learn how this coating is perfect for your next structure.

Finding good employees has always been hard, but in the economic environment of 2019, it can feel downright impossible. At the end of 2018, U.S. unemployment was the lowest it had been since 1969. For months, unfilled jobs outweighed the number of people seeking employment. In a market where job seekers have the pick of the litter, employers face stiff competition when courting prospects. Here are three strategies to draw in top performers and keep them. 1. PAY MORE. Excellent benefits, fancy perks, and flexible hours are important items on any job seeker’s checklist, but virtually every prospect’s top priority is adequate pay. Workers today have unprecedented bargaining power, and yet, according to ADP, small businesses with fewer than 50 employees boosted wages only a little over 3 percent last year, an amount quickly swallowed up by inflation and increasingly steep living costs. There’s just no way around it. To attract top-tier talent, competitive compensation is paramount, especially in 2019.


When shopping for roofing supplies, many consumers want metal because it’s a superior roofing material. What they don’t always realize is that while metal is durable and sheds snow well, it’s not just the inherent properties of metal that make it effective. The coatings added to the roofing panels are what ultimately stylize the product, retain coolness in the summer, and prevent rust.
