Higher pay for employees equals higher profits for a local company. Although it may sound counter-intuitive and often isn’t the general thinking in Corporate America, there is a local company having tremendous success paying employees exceptionally well while still outperforming the competition in year over year growth rates and profits.
With locations in TX, GA, FL, and CA, Garbage Grabbers Valet Trash is a national provider of doorstep trash removal for multi-family residential communities and they’re rapidly expanding.
If you haven’t seen them yet, I’m sure you’ve heard of them, where residents place their trash in an outdoor bin, and an employee simply walks around and takes closed bags of trash to the dumpster each night of service.
In the Austin TX market, jobs similar to this are paying around $10 per hour; that’s a far cry from the industry-leading $18-$20 per hour Garbage Grabber is averaging and that’s on top of an unprecedented vehicle allowance each month.
Recently, I was able to catch up with General Manager, Julius Zanoni. He tells me “that paying employees more is what’s driving our success.
We are finding better people and because our employees do a better job we’re able to outperform our competition, not only with higher retention rates but also our overall level of customer service.
We can’t be a good company without good employees. “ There definitely seems to be some correlation as to what Julius says; studies show that happy employees are engaged employees and they tend to be more productive.
It seems that more and more residential communities are deciding to opt into valet trash services and we can see many of them are doing it with Garbage Grabbers.
Not only is it a win for residents who enjoy the fact that everything is neat and properly maintained, but property management alike, whom also benefit from lower vacancy rates and higher resident satisfaction.
Simple? It can be, especially when your valet trash is done right (it’s even their slogan, look it up)
