November 24, 2009
Hosted by Aldonna Ambler
If your employees say “There is just no pleasing these people!” when your company does its 360 degree evaluations, listen to host Aldonna Ambler’s interview with Chris Davitt, the President of INC 500 member, The RUPPERT Companies. Hear how this $62 Million/year landscape/nursery/properties business with over 600 employees translates its “12 Core Values” into daily action. Hear specific examples about what has worked when one branch’s numbers have slipped or when the bosses realize they have gone too far and demanded too much. Hear why and how Davitt and his partners sold their business in 1998, honored their 5 year non compete contract, went back into business in 2003, and their business is even larger than it had been before the sale.
