When you first start a business renting moonwalks, you will likely be doing so on your own or with the help of your partner. After a few years, however, if you have done things correctly your business may get to the point where you need to hire employees. When you own your own business it’s easy to tell yourself what you need to do, but many new business owners do not realize that they need to make the rules clear for their employees as well. It is always a good idea when you own a business to set down some ground rules that your employees need to follow. Every business has their own rules, but you can customize the rules to work for your specific business. Here are a few rule ideas that you may find to be a good fit for your moonwalks rental business.
Dress Code – One thing that many people love about owning a moonwalks rental business is the fact that they don’t have to wear a suit and tie every day. While there is no need to be formal when setting up the bounce house, it is a good idea to make sure that all your employees have a similar look. It can be very inexpensive to purchase printed T-shirts that have your business’s name and logo long, allowing your employees to look professional while also giving you a bit of free advertising at the same time.
Language – Studies have been done that is shown that if you injure yourself, and you swear immediately following the injury, the pain that you feel is actually lessened. But when you own a moonwalks rental business, however, you are around children on a regular basis which means that you will need to watch the swears coming out of your mouth. Make sure all employees know that swearing is not allowed whenever you are setting up moonwalks.
Staying On Time – One thing that all employees of a moonwalks rental business need to understand is time management. Being there when you say that you will be is extremely important. Being late makes not only the employee look bad, but makes the entire business look bad. Make sure that your employees understand how important staying on time is. You can even create, and enforce, a punishment system for being late, such as docking them a few dollars for every hour they are late to a setup (as long as there are no extenuating circumstances, that is).
Remember: it’s your business so you get to set the rules, but be sure to set some rules so that you are able to have a business that thrives rather than one that takes a dive-bomb.
