|Print only when necessary|
Business operations are expensive. From utility bills, office rent, employee payroll and printing costs, it is not cheap to run a small business. The Enterprises TV show reviews how to cut costs and save some money.
Reducing costs and saving money are objectives which most business owners desire. Small business owners have the same goals. While it is nearly impossible to reduce the cost of office rent, there are some ways to cut the costs of utilities and printing.
If the business is less than 20 people and most of the work can be done from home, institute a telecommute policy. Workers who work from home are happier, work harder and are loyal. They see the opportunity as a favor and like knowing they can pay it back. Less people in the office also means less to spend on office furniture, utilities, and employee-related expenses.
Utility costs can be cut by raising the temperature to one which won’t force the air conditioner to work harder. Disconnect hot water from all faucets. Install motion sensing lights. Turn computers off at night, or at least put them on an energy-saving mode.
Enterprises TV knows the costs of printing can be quite high. Printer maintenance, paper and ink prices can be high. The most effective way to reduce this cost is to lease a printer. Also, try to set up printing options for the office such as printing only when necessary, using email folders and Cloud-based drives to store shared documents.
