We are in an age where business is getting squeezed further and further to produce quality, but at the same time clients and public are expecting cheaper.
If your business provides any goods or service within a supply chain involving heavy vehicles, come Oct 2018 you can and will be scrutinised under the ‘Chain of Responsibility’ laws if a vehicle carrying your products are caught breaching the rules, Everyone in that supply chain from a forklift driver to an owner or manager can be held personally responsible if things in your business are not being handled correctly.
Contracting Consulting Services is a great way to achieve changes to your business in areas of expertise you are unsure of to ensure maximum productivity. For instance, you manufacture a product and you have been using a company ute just to run around and deliver to your small list of clients. Your business is building over time from the ute to a truck and then two trucks. You now need someone to deal with the trucks and drivers and deliveries so you move one of your employees off the line as a bit of a promotion except that person doesn’t understand trucks, their carrying capacities, their maximum axle weights or how to restrain the loads. He has never been out of his town and therefore doesn’t know where delivery points are and so your costs explode to a point that is unsustainable. That example, while sounding exaggerated, I can assure you isn’t. This type of this is happening everywhere and costing businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars.
You may be the only manager and feel like you are getting swallowed up as your business grows and you need help to structure and move forward.
The best part is, you can contract the Consulting Service for as little or as long as you want or can afford. You can run it for a month for instance, and then stop using the service and come back to it later, if need be. Once the findings have been detailed and set up, you shouldn’t need ongoing help, unless wanted and all this means the costs are flexible!
