Lisa Lavender is a thought leader in the home services space. A dedicated restoration professional, Lisa wears many hats with her many businesses.

Eric and Larry had a wonderful conversation with Lisa about the concept of proper onboarding of new team members to both attract and retain talent. This often overlooked concept can make or break a new hire's attitude about your company on day one if the onboarding is not done well. Just telling the new hire to get in a van and help out is not enough anymore!!!
