Management Summary

Noah's Arf will be organized and managed in a creative, innovative fashion to generate very high levels of customer satisfaction. We will create a working climate conducive to a high degree of personal development and satisfaction for employees.

A policy manual will be developed and implemented. Job descriptions will be developed to identify necessary competencies and skill sets. Team oriented professionals with common goals will be hired.

We will conduct weekly staff meetings to discuss ideas, suggestions, and operations. An annual motivational seminar will be held and we will develop an employee recognition program. As the business grows, the company will offer an employee benefit package to include health and vacation benefits for everyone.

6.1 Personnel Plan

The personnel plan will be as follows:

  • One manager to oversee and fill-in for all areas.
  • Two front desk reception to greet customers, receive payments for services/products, set appointments, answer phones, check-in pets, distribute wash your own supplies and maintain files of clients with data entry.
  • Four playground supervisors will feed and water pets, keep area clean, walk and exercise, collect pets at check-out time. Two will be on staff full time and two will work part time.

Contract Employees:

  • One pet groomer.
  • One behavioral trainer.

In the first year, assumptions are that there will be only one receptionist, four playground supervisors, and the manager will serve as part time receptionist and night personal until the business can build. The groomer and trainer will work on contract. In the second year, a second receptionist, two playground supervisors and a groomer will be added to the payroll.
