In our world, here’s what’s scary!
Happy Halloween! Today is a good day to bring up what’s frightening in the world of water and wastewater operations and management. What we hear is concern over aging infrastructure, an aging and unavailable workforce and keeping up with regulations. And, when asked about partnering with a company to help manage to these concerns, the thought of losing control is frightening for some. From our perspective, it’s right to be concerned about the first three items on this list, but the fear of losing control when working with a partner like PeopleService doesn’t hold water. Last month, I facilitated a panel of city administrators who largely debunked this concern and in fact, relayed how relieved they are to have someone they trust on the job day in and day out. Delegation and trust are scary. I know having run my business for three decades. But this business wouldn’t be where it is with growth across four Midwest states and a list of valued customers – if I hadn’t trusted in the talent and skills of our Region Managers and their teams. These folks are highly credentialed. They’ve seen it all, and they share experiences with each other, so our customers gain the benefit of our engaged, loyal, knowledgeable and local workforce. With these guys on your side, what’s to fear? I’m always here to talk with you more about how this works.
