    The Biggest Threat To Your Business May Be Working For You!

    Posted by Rocco Cipriano on Mon, Mar 16, 2015

    In September 2013, a TSA screener at Los Angeles International Airport was arrested a few hours after resigning for making threats against the airport on the anniversary of 9/11. In December of that year, the FBI arrested an avionic technician at Wichita Airport for plotting a suicide attack using an improvised explosive device.

    These are just a couple of examples of employees who became a significant threat in the workplace. However, workplace threats are not limited to “home-grown” terrorists, radicalized by Islamic militarism. It also includes the careless employee, who unintentionally downloads a virus that infects your company’s computer network, or the disgruntled employee who acts unprofessionally with a customer. You may remember the JetBlue Flight Attendant, who became a YouTube sensation, when he quit his job by yelling a few choice words to passengers, grabbing some beers for the road and using the plane's emergency chute to exit the aircraft.

    Posted by Brenda Stoltz on Thu, Jan 22, 2015

    As economic conditions improve and gas prices plummet, the airline industry is poised to see more demand for flights and flight services starting in 2015.

    If you’re not a giant company, you probably don’t have the resources to fully dedicate to housing an entire human resources department.

Rather than risk having half-trained airport or transportation staff and being out of compliance with TSA regulations, consider outsourcing some (or all) of these common HR tasks.

    Alternative Methods of Incentivizing Employees

    Posted by Brandon Bernard on Tue, Jul 30, 2013

    A couple months ago, we talked about bonuses and how they are a tricky animal to tame. Too small and the impact of the bonus can be negative but too big and you risk the same situation.  One main point from that article that can be taken away is that people aren’t purely motivated by money. With that being the case, what alternative methods can you use to get the most out of your employees?

    Keeping Your Key Employees

    Posted by Brandon Bernard on Thu, Jun 06, 2013

    We all like to think no single employee is more important than another, but often times that is not true. Just like star athletes in a team sport, we hate to see one of the leaders of the pack go, fearing the team may never be the same without that person.

    We have spent the last few months examining how to find that perfect employee, what impact bonuses may have on achieving that result, and why employees stay or leave. This month, we will take a look at what you can do to keep that key employee on your team.

We use them for EVERYTHING, starting at PRIA, Drug Program, Records Storage, all the way thru Audit Prep and just answering all my questions. I seriously could not do this without them. Even when my rep Emily is busy, I can rely on Claudia, or Dan for immediate help. The service we receive is well worth what we pay and then some!!"

    I got a gold star from the TSA inspector who inspected our flight school last year, but that's because my company paid me ground time to research AFSP and make a new AFSP student checklist. Even so, I had one (of 3) AFSP applicants rejected initially due to some of the errors you talk about in the blog. I just wanted to shoot you an email and say thanks for making the effort to clarify the process for all of us. I get the impression that there are a lot of the CFIs out there in the small flight schools who haven't got a clue about the AFSP process. So go ahead and feel good about yourself for helping all us lost boys stay in business and out of the trouble.
