|Christmas party with our renewed team of workers and guards|
After reporting to and consulting with the building company from whom I hire the workers, the people were immediately removed from the construction area, and punishment arranged by the company.
A team of 5 new workers were added the next day. A few days since it was quite silent, the workers were really impressed and I believe that it was an important message to all workers.
Last week I was again confronted by, this time potential, theft. In the middle of the night (2 am) I was called by the guard that 4 men were seen around our property with a clear intention to try to steel materials or worse. So we rushed to the site by car, with a lot of noise. We didn't see them, of course they were flown already. We decided to sleep there as well for the rest of the night.
A measure taken since last week is that we have now 2 extra guards, in total 5, such that at all times (nights) we have 3 guards on the site.
When we had our Christmas party yesterday, I got several comments saying that I am a good boss. Mind you they have a lot of freedom, within limits, now and then we organize a party and salaries are above the free market price.
So for the group of thieves this will not be a happy Christmas, but for the rest of the team it will be and they may expect a good New Year as I will hire them at least for some more months.
