What advice would you give the CEO of Enterprise Holdings about how to improve the company?
I have 30 years experience as a Client Representative, dealing with customers withcustomers. I have so many changes that could improve the business but management have no interest. You give suggestions, your shot down immediately, get told that's not how it's done. The management don't want any changes, they are content, don't want to rock the boat.
They are afraid how it will reflect on them or why didn't they didn't they think of it or persue the idea/suggestion.
What would you suggest Enterprise Holdings management do to prevent others from leaving?
Make them feel like there an asset, give them recognition once in a while. Employees give their 100%, they deserve that much.
I would compare the cultyre to that of a Boys' Club; probably great fun if you have no spouse/kids, or desire for a social life of your own. The hours (60-80/week) are too long to sustain over more than a few years, meetings take place after-hours in bars, 'incentives' offered in beer & wings instead of something a family could actually use like grocery or gas giftcards.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Enterprise Holdings a better place to work?
My previous employer for 30 years was a major company. The CEO held yearly town halls. Employees respected them for making time for them.
Town halls connects you with your employees. Hear what they have to say. Come at least once a year to give company updates and hear from your employees. We're the front line, back bone of the company. The only way you know what does/doesn't work is hearing from the employees. This would improve the company employees morale.
Do not let management do town halls, they would not let you know questions employees want addressed.
You can also do yearly surveys where employees can give there input, suggestions.
