We welcome Russ Hill from Crashzone back onto the show to give us a lowdown on all-things recruitment in the collision-repair industry. In his words, “I don’t think there’s a skills shortage - we’ve just got to get them back.” Contraversial? That's Hill for you.

But how? In an industry that some young people perceive as behind the times, you’ve got to work doubly hard to attract the best. Hill see's how other's have been successful via the industry facebook groups he oversees and has learned a thing or two as a business owner seldom short of staff over the years as well.

In this week’s episode you will learn:

-Is money as important to your employees as you think it is?

-The percentage of your staff who are likely to be looking to move

-The importance of facebook ads for recruitment

-How things have shifted to prospective employees interviewing the shop rather than the other way around

-How your business should come across to the marketplace

-The average length of time a member of staff is likely to stay

-Why you should spend proper money on job ads

-What makes a good job ad

-The importance of good relationships with local schools/colleges
