Declutter

You might be feeling that ‘declutter’ means synergizing your departments, or combining multiple roles into one. It could, but in this instance, I’m not speaking figuratively.

Decluttering by throwing out all items that have lost their relevance could be long overdue. Throwing out old computing systems, dysfunctional laptops, stored assets with little value and replacing office furniture that has is not functional can all work to refresh the inner machinations of your office.

Using commercial skip bin hire this can all take place in a matter of days, providing you allocate a number of appropriate people to the task. Make sure any final decision regarding things to be thrown out passes through you.

Throwing out that important new server system you’ve purchased will cause you more of a headache than you had originally envisioned.

Decluttering in this way affords you a great opportunity. Not only can you now begin your work with a more focused approach, but the general mental functioning of your employees is likely going to be improved when all the rubbish of the office is removed.

Assess Suppliers

Your suppliers provide you with the materials or services necessary to keep you functional. Supplier loyalty is often something many businesses keep, because they are offered discounts for bulk orders, or the whole process of ordering has been made so convenient there’s almost no reason to change.

Assessing the suppliers you use is no less important however. Just because you’ve been using a select company for years, well, this year might mean their competition is more appropriate for use.

You’ll only know if you compare and contrast their services with others.

If you find a better deal, there’s no reason to cease your relationship with them. Bring this information to them, and see if they can negotiate in order to keep your business.

If not, then there’s absolutely no problem choosing a better product or a cheaper acquisition if it’s more convenient, despite the goodwill you have built with the original firm. After all, you have a business to run too.

Taking care of those two things allows for a better business, as it’s likely you rarely check up on these matters. Doing so will give you more room to manoeuvre in the new year, both figuratively and literally.
