The Lacey Chamber Newsletter Volume 11, Issue 7

Message from the President By Jeff Powell, President


ne of my responsibilities as president of the Chamber is to provide you with interesting and informative Forums. Over the last seven months I believe we have done that. The last Forum truly informed all of us as to what we should be expecting with the new health care program that the politicians in Washington, D.C., passed just a few months ago. I had a hard time trying to formulate in my own mind what this meant to our company and how it would impact us. I now know that it will not cost us less and it will take a lot more administrative time to sort it all out. When it comes right down to it, what I want to say is that these new regulations, not just limited to the federal government but all government, are choking the life out of business—and not just small business. I really feel that we, the risk takers, are being targeted to provide capital to run the government that we created, and that capital is drying up due to over regulation—just an observation. Our new fundraising committee is doing a bang-up job. They have started the process of looking at new programs that will benefit our members and at the same time creating a more sustainable stream of income for the Chamber. Some of the ideas being worked on involve a community referral system, a BBQ competition, a baking and decorating competition, and a revamped auction. Some of these will happen this year while others will take time to fully develop. We will keep the membership informed as to our progress. The committee welcomes any ideas and is always looking for members who want to be part of the monthly brainstorming sessions. Thank you to committee members Tony Salas, Al Eckroth, Lowell Gordon, Amanda Graham, Chris Lester, Lourdes Beck, and Brent Walz for all your hard work.

Our new Community Resource Guide is now complete and will be available at the Lacey Chamber BBQ at the Woodland Creek Community Park on July 7. Come join us and let us show our appreciation for all you do to make our community a better place. There is a small charge of $5.00 to cover the cost of supplies.

Setting Non-negotiable Staff Standards Written br Noel Peebles


hen a person seeks employment with your company, he or she is basically saying, “I want to work for your company.” What this really means is “I will give up doing whatever I please, show up for work and behave the way you want me to behave, so long as you pay me in exchange.”

Now, that gives you, the employer, the opportunity to set some standards of behavior that are non-negotiable. That doesn’t mean you are taking away any creativity from your employees. After all, it is important for staff members to have some flexibility and to project their own personality into their job. With that said, it is also a good idea for the employer to be inflexible with some things. In other words, set non-negotiable standards. This is no different from everyday life. Society has rules. Imagine, for example, if there were no road signs or laws to guide us on how to behave. Imagine if there were no rules in sport… it would be a shambles, right? The truth is, most of us like to know our boundaries, because that way we know what we can and can’t do. If we break the law, we get fined or arrested. If we don’t play fairly in sport, we get penalized in some way. We are use to non-negotiable standards.

Why should it be any different when running a business? It shouldn’t! To run smoothly, every business needs rules and policy. Although staff members may not always agree with the policy, they can and usually will comply. I will give you a couple of examples of what I mean. When I ran my retail stores I had a staff uniform designed. Staff members were required to wear

the uniform—that was non-negotiable. However, it wasn’t quite like being in the military. There were various acceptable combinations, so the staff could adjust the uniform to suit their own personality.

Here’s the deal, it was a non-negotiable standard that staff members were required to wear the uniform. Furthermore, it needed to be within the agreed guidelines using any one of the approved combinations. Anything else was unacceptable. Now, that’s not unreasonable. Another example was the handling of money. Banknotes were required to be put into the cash registers in the correct compartments and all facing in the same direction. I had worked out that it took the same amount of time to put the money away in a tidy order as it did to shove it in any old way. This kept the cash registers tidy and made counting the money much easier. This was a non-negotiable standard, and it worked well. I’ll give you yet another example. As anyone in retailing will know, meeting and greeting customers is critical. If you ask, “Can I help you?” the inevitable response is “No thank you. I’m just looking.” So why ask a question that you know will get a predictably negative response.

The answer is you shouldn’t! So, one of my non-negotiable standards was that staff members never, never, ever asked, “Can I help you?”

Instead, staff members were given intensive training on exactly how to meet and greet customers. They were given lots of ideas and the flexibility to inject their own personality into what they said.

When greeting a customer, staff members were encouraged to begin by talking about anything except making a sale. They could comment on the weather, something happening outside the store, the fashionable coat the customer was wearing… anything except making a sale.

The reason for this was simple. The first objective was to always try to relax the customer before attempting to make a sale. So “can I help you” was a definite NO-NO. I believe that in setting non-negotiable standards it is important to put the policies in writing. Although verbal instruction will be necessary on occasion, it is much easier to hold people accountable for something that is written.

Finally, it is really important to ensure that employees know and fully understand the meaning of the non-negotiable standards. They need to be thoroughly trained on what’s required or how to do the particular task. I’m a strong believer in asking people, “Do you understand?” and in some cases following up with “Show me.” This way there can be no misunderstanding as to exactly what’s required. Although setting non-negotiable standards might sound very disciplined, it is really about running a business at maximum efficiency. And, in no way should that stop everyone from having a lot of fun. Besides, most employees will try hard to please... and they have a right to know what’s required of them and their boundaries.

Show Your Support for the 3rd Stryker Brigade! By Carlene Joseph, Harborstone Credit Union, Military Affairs Committee Chair


he Lacey Chamber of Commerce is working diligently with the local Association of the United States Army Subchapter to support Joint Base Lewis McChord’s Community Connector, the 3rd Stryker Brigade. We need community support to welcome the 3rd Stryker Brigade home! You can help by attending our next Subchapter meeting on July 15, 2010, at the Hawks Prairie Restaurant to show your support. The meeting begins at 4:00 p.m. Already, a welcome home barbeque is being scheduled for the city of Puyallup and a “Lakewood Salutes” event is being scheduled in Lakewood. We need businesses to help with this effort to show the 3rd Stryker Brigade just how much the Lacey community cares. This evening, an AUSA general membership meeting was held in the City of Lakewood. Our guest speaker was the commander of Joint Base Lewis McChord, MG John Johnson. He talked about the challenges in Iraq and the great progress I Corps made during their deployment. He went on to talk about the tremendous challenges our soldiers face each day. The rally tonight of corporate partners was the best I’ve ever seen. In a large room, representatives of Lacey, Lakewood, and Puyallup were in attendance to provide their unwavering support to our America’s heroes. We want you to join in too. Please give me a call directly at (253)312-9279 to learn how you can help. The Chamber’s ongoing commitment to the 3rd Stryker Brigade is supported by our Military Affairs Committee, which is always scheduled on the second Tuesday of each month, beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Hawks Prairie Restaurant. Please come by and listen to how you can help. Remember, these soldiers are coming home during the summer months, so be prepared for a surge of spending in the area. These soldiers boost our economy, so why not support them. I look forward to seeing you some of you at the next Military Affairs Committee meeting.

Commercial Landlord-Tenant Law Submitted by Lacey Chamber member, Carmen R. Rowe Hoogkamer, Goldstein Law Office, PLLC


would like to welcome all of you to attend an upcoming Commercial Landlord-Tenant Law seminar in Tacoma, Washington, on August 12, 2010, put on by Sterling Education Services (SES). I have the privilege of being one of the speakers at this event and am very excited about the panel of experienced and savvy lawyers covering the issues. This is a great opportunity to educate commercial landlords and tenants regarding lease provisions, the eviction and judicial process, dispute resolutions, and other issues relating to commercial leasing. Commercial leasing is a major component of any healthy business, and understanding the various issues is particularly important in these economic times. This seminar provides critical information for business owners, attorneys, property managers, developers, building owners, leasing agents, landlords and tenants, collection agents, and

other real estate professionals. It is also a unique opportunity to attend a seminar of this caliber on the “South End” without having to travel to Seattle (and at a cost lower than you would pay in Seattle). On the seminar agenda, I will present the section on Lease Provision and Issues: Plan Ahead to Avoid Problems. This section covers the following issues: a. b. c. d. e. f. g. h. i. j. k.

Case law and legislative updates Business items Lease drafting considerations Parties to the lease Liquidated damages Guarantees Option to renew/extend Signage Condemnation issues Insurance issues Rights that cannot be waived or modified

Other topics covered by highly experienced advisors will include landlord and tenant obligations (including issues under the Foreclosure Act); the eviction and judicial process; landlord-tenant mediation and dispute resolution; various issues when a tenant or landlord file bankruptcy (including treatment of leases, stays, damages, and collection and judgments); green building and green leases, and ethical considerations for lease negotiations.

Please contact me if you are interested in attending the seminar, either by phone 360-352-1970 or email carmen@jaglaw. net. Please also see the flyer for the seminar in this newsletter.

Heritage Financial Recognized as Best of the Northwest


eritage Financial Corporation, the bank holding company for Heritage Bank and Central Valley Bank, announced that it was recently honored and recognized by The Seattle Times as one of the Best of the Northwest for 2009. There were two categories in which Heritage Financial was honored: “Top 20 Companies of the Decade” and one of only 23 companies that were debt-free.

Heritage Financial was recognized as one of only three Washington banks in the “Top 20 Companies of the Decade.” This recognition was based on the highest total shareholder returns from 2000 through 2009. Heritage Financial generated a 132% return for shareholders during that period of time. The Seattle Times stated that, “The community banks that rose to the top rejected newfangled ideas such as pay-option mortgages and ‘liar loans’.”

Additionally, Heritage Financial was recognized as one of 23 publically traded Pacific Northwest companies that were debt-free for 2009 and the only bank to be recognized in this category. “To be honored as one of the ‘Top 20 Companies of The Decade’ is indeed an honor. This is especially rewarding when one considers that we are included with other iconic companies of the Pacific Northwest such as Paccar, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Nike, and Columbia Sportswear, as fellow ‘Top 20 Companies of the Decade’,” said Mr. Brian Vance, Heritage Financial’s Chief Executive Officer. “Additionally, we are pleased to be recognized as one of just a few companies, and the only bank in the survey, that is debt-free. To be a debt-free company in these difficult economic times is a nice position in which to be. I would like to publically thank all of our employ-

ees who do their jobs so very well every day which makes these awards possible.”

According to the publication, to be considered for The Seattle Times “Best of the Northwest,” public companies must be headquartered in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho. Companies must trade above $2 a share, be public for at least two full years, and be listed on the New York, American or NASDAQ stock exchanges. Heritage Financial Corporation is a bank holding company headquartered in Olympia, Washington which operates two community banks, Heritage Bank and Central Valley Bank. Heritage Bank serves Pierce, Thurston, Mason and South King Counties in the South Puget Sound region of Washington through its fourteen full-service banking offices and its Online Banking Website
