How Does A Family Business Survive? By CP Editorial Staff
Steven M. Altman
You cannot run your business like like a family business! All employees have to be treated as equals and you have to promote and hire only the best. Twenty years ago nepotism may have worked but many people pay for bad decisions in the workplace.
For me growing up in a family business, I thought I always had to be the hardest worker and put the most time in at work. I felt it was my name on the front door and this was taught to me from my grandfather and father. Today, I am the owner of a five-generation janitorial company that is 105 years old. My son is working for our company now, when he is not in college at Ohio State University. I strongly feel that one must work hard to earn the respect of your fellow coworkers. I can assure you that my children will have this same belief. Steven M. Altman, President Youngstown Cleaning Co. Girard, Ohio All-Pro Cleaning Services, Inc. Solon, Ohio
