Another year is coming to a close, and with the approaching New Year come all manner of Office party plans. But if you’re one of your company’s unlucky decision-makers then you also have to worry about how to ensure success once things kick off again in January.
Of course, there are a lot of variables to plan for depending on your industry, but you can always improve your odds of success by making sure you’re equipped with the right tools. Below are just a few ways you can prepare yourself for the New Year.
It might sound ridiculous, but creating a greener, more naturalistic working environment can have a tremendously positive impact on productivity. In fact, a 2010 study by the University of Technology in Sydney found a 37% drop in anxiety and tension after plants were introduced to an office space.
Environmental awareness is not only a great way to boost staff morale; it can also help to enhance your brand’s image and reputation. This is why we offer our customers toner recycling services, and have even written about several other ways for offices to go green.
Manage your print costs
Printing might not seem like it would be a significant drain on a company’s funds, but estimates actually put the average printing spend at around 1-3% of an organisation’s annual turnover. That means a company with a £10 million turnover could be spending between £100,000 and £300,000 on printing.
Unsurprisingly, one of the most common New Year targets for businesses is to reduce costs. Therefore, cutting print costs could make a tremendous difference to your finances over the next year and beyond. Look into print management services for more on this.
Improve your security
January should be a time for making things happen, and making things happen in business usually involves lots of meetings. Lots and lots of meetings. So, if you’re going to have any hope of monitoring the visits of your many potential clients and business partners, you’re going to need an efficient, up-to-date security system.
This is where a visitor management system like InVentry comes in very useful indeed. Not only is it a huge benefit to your on-site security as you’re able to monitor visitors as they come and go, but it also helps you stay organised when you’ve got a full schedule.
