It’s vital that your business saves as much money as it can. So, here are some unusual tips to help you get started:
Don’t Buy Any Computers
This first tip may sound incredibly strange. Surely you need computers to carry out all your work? Well, yes, you do. But, there’s no reason your business has to buy any. Why? Because almost every person in the world has a laptop nowadays. So, why don’t you get your staff to bring their computer equipment into the office? This saves you a fortune, and everyone still works like they used to. If anything, it will boost productivity too. Many people work better when they’re using a device they know and are comfortable with
Reduce Your Water Bill
Now, we all know that offices will generate some pretty hefty utility bills. There are plenty of electronic devices that are turned on throughout the day. Plus, in the cold months, you have your heating on almost every day too. But, I want to talk about something that loads of companies neglect; your water bill. The majority of offices will have a kitchen area and bathroom, and these areas use up a lot of water. While many business owners are focussing on being more energy efficient, they forget about this costly utility too. So, they save on energy bills but pay loads for their water. This doesn’t need to be the case, as there are many ways you can save on your water bills.
This helps collect rainwater and make it fresh for you to drink and use. As a result, you don’t have to pay for the water you use. So, you can save an absolute fortune! Then, you have generic tips like turning the tap off or not flushing the toilet for minor things. This will also help you cut down on water usage, and save money.
Don’t Pay For Food
Believe it or not, but food can be a big expense for most companies. Everyone knows that employees are incredibly important to the health of your organization. And, ensuring that they’re well-fed is a big way to keep them happy. However, this can end up costing you a lot of money. There are many businesses that supply lunch for their employees, every day. While this may keep them happy, and ensure they aren’t hungry, it isn’t great if you want to save money. My advice is to stop paying for so much food. Make your employees bring a packed lunch to work, so you save on these costs. If you want, you can supply lunch for them once a week or month as a little treat. This will still save you loads more than if you supplied food every day. There are articles like http://www.reliableplant.com/Read/ that teach you how to make your employees happy. So, you can keep them happy, without spending loads on their lunch.
Hopefully, this advice has given you some great insight into saving money. For more money saving tips, check out another post on our site here: http://www.artshine.com.au/.
