Session Title: Transitioning Your Janitorial Business to New Owners
Presenter: Peter J. Holton, Caber Hill Advisors
Session Date: Thursday, August 11, 2016
Session Time: 10am – 11am CDT

BSCAI members may register for $29 and non-BSCAI members may register for $99.

Session description:
Transition planning is an often overlooked yet extremely critical element of a transaction, and this is increasingly important in janitorial businesses. Anyone involved in the purchase or sale of a business would be remiss to ignore the vast and complicated issues that can arise if a transition to new ownership is mismanaged.

Session Title: Three Insights Tied to the Massive Shifts in the Janitorial Industry
Presenter: Michael Brown, CEO, Swept
Session Date: Wednesday, August 31, 2016
Session Time: 1pm – 2pm CDT

BSCAI members may register for $29 and non-BSCAI members may register for $99.

Session description:
The janitorial industry is rapidly changing, and new expectations are being placed on you and your company. The most challenging aspect of change (aside from recognizing that it is taking place) is quickly identifying the negative impact and then reframing to see potential for massive upside gains in your company.

This session will share three key insights we discovered as we expanded our company from one to three cities, and developed a framework to increase cleaner and client retention.

Insights covered will include:

  • Changes in expectations from your clients - How to stay relevant
  • Cleaners - Learn how their skills are being underutilized
  • How to sell differently - Reframe discussion and leave your competitors behind

Session Title: FaCE Your Future
Presenter: Betsy Allen CEO, exceler8
Session Date: Thursday, August 18, 2016
Session Time: 11 am – 12pm CDT

This webinar is FREE for BSCAI members and non-members.

Description: Invest 60 minutes to FaCE your Future by avoiding conventionitis (leaving a convention there instead of taking it with you in meaningful action). Be accountable to your peers by coming to the webinar and be prepared to hear and share 3 things you’ve implemented regarding what was covered in Four Decisions: Mastering the Rockefeller Habits – Core Values, 8 Approachess to Acceler8 Attraction, FaCE Chart, 8 Exciting Ways to Engage, Talent Review, 8 Rules of Retention and Leading & Lagging Key Performance Indicators.

Share your FaCE chart Findings. Do I have one person spread too thin (too many roles), two people accountable for one thing (no one is accountable), or empty seats and what is my number one leading and lagging indicator for every role in my company (managers, supervisors, heart of the house & front line). Also, bring one goal you have for 2016, that, if it is accomplished, you took things from Good to GREAT this year with BSCAI supporting you.

Register Now!

Must register 24 hours prior to the webinar. Cancellations received 10 days prior to the webinar will be issued a 100% refund. Any cancellation received less than 10 days prior will not be refunded.

Registration - How Do I Sign Up & How Much Is It?

BSCAI members whose company is a GAF contributor this year may attend GAF Series Webinars for FREE. BSCAI members whose company is not a GAF contributor this year will be charged $29 per webinar and non-members will be charged $99 per webinar.

Overtime Rule Change Webinar

On May 18, the U.S. Department of Labor announced its long-anticipated changes to overtime rules under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The new rule extends overtime coverage to at least 4.2 million U.S. workers who are currently exempt.

To help you understand the potential impacts to your business and prepare for this change, BSCAI is co-hosted a webinar on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 with Affinity HR Group, a national HR consulting firm. 

This webinar covered:

•    Regulatory changes and their impact
•    Reclassification and pay accommodation options you can consider to be compliant
•    Answers to attendees specific questions before, during, and after the webinar

Ecolab Flu Preparation

In this video John H. Hanlin, PH.D. and Henry L. Carbone, M.S. discuss what Influenza is, review past seasons and look at the current season, talk about transmission and how protection starts with prevention.

  • Easy to Use – Simply register via fax or mail and dial-in at the specified time and date.
