Finding what you need on DLI’s website has never been easier. The entire site was redesigned to make it easier than ever to find what you need, but we also added a Search bar to simplify the site even more.
Finding and keeping reliable, trustworthy employees can be a complicated and difficult task. Short-term gig work opportunities and remote working options are disrupting industries across America, meaning business owners and managers alike are all struggling to recruit from a dwindling pool of competent applicants, and keep them. The true costs of turnover can be hard to determine, but everyone seems to agree it is very costly to constantly hire and train new employees all the time.
Rechelle Balanzat, CEO and Founder of Juliette Dry Cleaners in New York City shared how hashtags can help raise business profiles on social media in a DLI webinar, February 22. “Social media has really become synonymous with digital marketing,” Balanzat said. “Your clients expect you to be on social media. People want to engage with you on their terms.”
Your Data Make the Results More Accurate
Some of the material members most frequently request from DLI is information concerning drycleaning industry operating expenses. DLI periodically performs a survey and releases the results to members. This involves aggregating figures on various revenues and expenses so DLI can create a clear image of the overall industry’s operations.
DLI’s School of Drycleaning Technology trained another group of students in the art and science of running a successful drycleaning business. Students attended The Institute’s 381st General Drycleaning Course, comprised of the one-week Introduction to Drycleaning and two-week Advanced Drycleaning Courses.
