(Hani is far left on the picture with his team) ‚ÄúI have been in business for many years. I have never had to advertise. On a weekly basis, I get a new customer and I have been able to maintain my old customers.‚Äù Hani runs a full service garage on 825 Campbell Avenue Ottawa with a multi-cultural staff. In the same way that he never advertises, he has also never had to recruit mechanics formally. ‚ÄúRecruitment by word of mouth is better. All of the people whom I have hired have been referred to me by friends and customers.‚Äù His five staff are from Lebanan, Iran, the Philippines and Canada. He also has a female mechanic on staff which makes him feel happy to embrace gender equality. He takes great care to treat his staff and his customers respectfully so that the work environment is healthy and positive. Look out for who will be¬† Earth Angels tomorrow night!
