Message From The Editor

Take care of your employees and they will take care of your business

At Boating Industry Canada we spend a lot of time cultivating and promoting the strength of the marine industry in Canada. Marine associations are also working on your behalf everyday to ensure that boating businesses of every size and description have the best chance they can have to be successful. Although there are many challenges facing the marina business today, the front lines are where customer relationships are made or broken. I recently had the opportunity to witness 'what not to do as an employer' in the context of a family run marina and it was disappointing on many counts but the bottom line was that it will have affected their bottom line, over and over again. As a marina employer, train your summer staff properly, treat them with respect and show them that they are valued. It's guaranteed that this will translate into them treating your customers with the same values and putting a positive face on the front lines of your business.
