Developing a Winning Team—How to Find Good People

Has the following ever happened to you? You lose one of your crew. So you ask around and find an assistant to help you out. At first they seem great—they show up for work on time and customers are pleased with their work. But after a little while, a new picture emerges. Jobs aren't getting done, customers are complaining, and you find yourself spending more time putting out fires than you ever have before. You're back to a persistent issue—how do you find good people you can count on?

One of the biggest challenges today is finding employees who are not only trained in their profession, but who are skilled, motivated to do a good job and, who work well with your existing team. In this month's feature article, we focus on what you can do to recruit good, talented people who fit well with your existing team.

The Best of Both Worlds
High–Performance Series Water Heaters by Bradford White

Last August Bradford White introduced its High–Performance Series Water Heaters. Due to their performance, they are technically classified as commercial water heaters, but they are for residential customers.

They boast four distinct features:

  • 78,000 BTU/hr or 80,000 BTU/hr (based on model)
  • A unique Helical Flue Fin design to achieve thermal efficiency ratings of 82%
  • The Optimizer Temperature Control System
  • HydroJet2 Total Performance System

Click here for more information on these four features.

Why would your customers be interested in the High–Performance Series Water Heaters?

  • The High–Performance Series Water heaters combine the efficiency of tankless water heaters with the convenience of stored hot water
  • They are a perfect application for where space is a concern
  • One GX1–55S water heater can be installed in place of two standard 50–gallon gas model heaters
  • They offer installation advantages over tankless units—they vent using standard 4" single wall vent pipe, and they only require a 1/2" gas connection
  • For customers who always look for "the best" the High–Performance series offers superior delivery of hot water and higher efficiency
