Take a look at this Instagram post below (email subscribers, click through if you can't see it) and I'll tell you more after the jump:
So here's your backstory on this-- I spoke Monday in Atlanta in front of a large group of franchise owners at Primrose Learning Centers. The Dunn's are former Primrose parents, and
happy ones at that. So I was excited when Primrose choose my company (Kinetix) to provide Recruiting and HR services for the parent company, which is headquartered in Atlanta.
That would have been enough. But when pulling together my presentation, I got to tell a great story. Drew Dunn, my oldest, was a Primrose student for 5+ years before he entered Kindergarten. He was at Primrose from 2000-2005.
Flash forward to 2017. Mrs. Dunn and I are headed somewhere with Drew and he wants to pull into a Taco Bell (that's his hangout, don't judge) to get a drink. So we pull in there and notice that it's taking a long time for him to get that Mt. Dew. We look in and see him talking to an adult. Another couple of minutes pass and he walks out with someone we immediately recognize as a former Primrose teacher - Miss Robin!
Miss Robin (pictured above ) recognized Drew- 13 years after she was his teacher at a Primrose school - and picked him out of a crowd! She’s still at Primrose. How many referrals do you think they will get from us based on the power of that?
Who needs facial recognition from a computer when you have Miss Robin?
That's the most powerful lead I could have for my presentation - The power of committed employees is remarkable, which makes hiring AND retention key.
Looking forward to helping Primrose find better ways to locate talent that makes a difference in our world. The more people like Miss Robin they can find, the stronger they will be!
