Hello fellow recyclers. As the hot days of summer are finally here we are looking forward to the next few months. They will be filled with selling parts, buying more vehicles for parts and scrap. We will also be planning family vacations now that the kids are on summer vacation. This will be a very busy time for everyone.

We have two important events coming up. The Bob Hoffmann Memorial Golf Outing on August 20th will be at the Ridges Golf course in Wisconsin Rapids. A CARS Board Meeting will take place on Friday night August 19th at Americas Best Value Inn, 3410 8th St. South, WI Rapids. 54494. Everyone is invited to the board meeting at 7:00 PM

The golf outing will start at 8:00 AM with a shotgun start. Please send in your registration form. All non-golfers are also invited. For the non-golfers we will be having a bean bag tournament. So there will be fun things for everyone. We will be having food, raffle prizes and a 50/50 raffle. Hole sponsorships are available for $100.00.

The registration form is in this newsletter and on the web site. We are hoping to be able to offer more students scholarships this year so please come and support CARS and the Bob Hoffmann Scholarship.

Lessons Learned
By Mike Kunkle, Profit Team Consulting

One of the things that we commonly hear from our customers is how hard it is to find employees. There are a variety of things that go into getting the best people from new hire to solid producing employee that adds value to the company.

We don’t often get the person that we thought we hired after they have worked there for a short period of time. Once again, there are a lot of potential reasons for the person to not be successful in the position they were hired for and need to be replaced.

States vary in how long you have to terminate a new hire without unemployment penalties kicking in. The fear of an unemployment percentage change can pale in comparison to the other potential agencies an employee can get involved. OSHA is an example if the new hire or even an existing employee can be called and they can claim they were terminated for being a whistle blower and then gain a financial benefit for drawing light on the business needlessly.
