How To Keep Employees Happy & Long-Term

Jamie is the founder of FetchFind, a company that provides staff training, engagement, and other business solutions to pet care service and pet-friendly companies around the globe. After owning multiple pet care companies, Jamie learned a thing or two about not only hiring, but how to keep employees happy, motivated, and present!

Something I’ve heard from many clients of mine is the trouble that is involved in keeping employees around. The turnover struggle in the pet industry is REAL. That’s why I asked Jamie if she would be willing to hop on an interview with me to chat about how to help lower turnover in your pet business.
