Dale Johnson: Field Representative

Dale Johnson introduces companies to General Contractor Solutions with first-hand experience of its value. He co-owned CJ’s Cafes, operating 20 restaurants located in office buildings throughout the Tampa. Before he and his partner successfully sold each unit, Johnson was approached by General Contractor Solutions to consider the idea of using employee leasing as a tool for reducing worker’s compensation insurance costs, and focusing on revenue-generating activities, rather than ever-increasing administrative duties.

Johnson chose to outsourced his HR-related functions through General Contractor Solutions’s negotiations with a network of PEOs, and went on to establish an impressive account list for his corporation, including Super Bowl catering. He also developed a store management food incentive program that successfully controlled employee theft, product waste and product promotional incentives
