  • Article title: Industrial Businesses: Lowering Costs To Better Your Bottom Line
  • Article text: Starting up and maintaining your industrial business to be profitable is a challenge. The [*nolink https://www.acquisition-international.com/your-industrial-startup-can-keep-cost-low-by-recognizing-quality-used-equipment/ *]startup costs are some of the highest for any industry[*endlink*], with the highest costs associated with purchasing and maintaining equipment. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    There are cost-effective ways to organize your industrial business so that it’s not a burden on your revenues and lowers your margins. Still, in order to do that, you need to be strategic in budgeting and planning. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Finding ways to lower your expenses without reducing the quality of your offering should be at the forefront of every long-term decision you make. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    To [*nolink https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/cutting-costs-in-business *]cut costs effectively in your business[*endlink*], you should:

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Analyze the inefficiencies, and track what is doing well in your business

    Outsource non-critical departments

    Eliminate waste and unproductive processes

    Hire and train employees

    Negotiate with vendors

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Analyze Inefficiencies And What Is Performing

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Before making decisions about products, labor, and equipment, you need to evaluate what is working and what isn’t. Eliminating inefficiencies is a primary source of cutting waste and increasing potential revenue. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    For example, if you have a constantly underperforming or critically under-utilized department, you are paying for those services and labor and not getting much in return. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Analyzing what it is that you’re spending your money on and what is creating a return for those dollars is just one step in deciding where to cut costs. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    By taking a comprehensive view of your operations, you may see that some areas are not as efficient or performing as well as expected or that those aspects of operation may not be pertinent to your business. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Outsource Wherever Possible

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    One effective tool in cutting costs is to outsource non-essential functions when possible. Once you analyze your entire operation and see underperforming and possibly unnecessary areas, you can cut back those departments. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Rather than eliminate those departments, [*nolink https://www.nibusinessinfo.co.uk/content/advantages-and-disadvantages-outsourcing *]consider that there are advantages of outsourcing[*endlink*] to a third party to save money. 





    Eliminate Wasteful Processes

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Not every cost-cutting measure is associated with downsizing departments. Sometimes there are [*nolink https://hellonimbly.com/lean-manufacturing-eliminate-waste-and-cut-operational-cost/ *]wasteful processes and less-efficient ways[*endlink*] of doing things that add up costs over time. 



    Taking the macro look at how your business functions, ask yourself if there are better ways to do things and if you can iterate those functions to save you money on labor and product. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Hire And Effectively Train Employees

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    The saying, “people don’t quit jobs, they quit bosses,” is especially true in workplaces that are toxic by nature or in environments where people don’t feel they have the tools to succeed. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    The first step is to be sure in your screening process that you’re hiring people who fit the job needs and have personalities that align with your company’s philosophy. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Additionally, after the hiring process concludes, having educational and training opportunities for each and every member of your organization helps maintain a culture within your organization and provides the tools for each person to perform to their best capabilities. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    If you’re operating in a different industry with a lot of interface with customers, educating and training your staff on handling objections and complaints and building relationships with your client pool are crucial ways to help your company grow.





    Negotiate With Vendors

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    With startup costs being astronomical with industrial businesses, finding ways to cut costs on machinery is an excellent strategy to lower your overhead. You should compare shops for services and products to find a reasonable deal that helps keep your costs low. 





    Another strategy is to lease or finance your machinery. There are a few different ways to lease and finance the equipment. Simply search for service providers within your industry. For instance, if you own a lab, [*link https://www.excedr.com/leasing/" style="font-size: 12pt; white-space: pre; *]Excedr lab equipment leasing[*endlink*] helps get the tech you need without a lot of upfront costs. 







    With leasing options, you may be able to borrow the equipment, upgrade as needed, and have maintenance costs included in the lease agreement. 



    Lowering your operational costs should be an annual undertaking. Taking a hard look at how you do things, what produces the best results, and what is underperforming should inform your budget decisions.

  • Article title: The Benefits Of Adopting Corporate Socially Responsible Philosophies
  • Article text: Social responsibility is a way to ensure good business practices and do what is suitable for your employees, staff, and customers.

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    More and more businesses understand that their role in society goes beyond their product offerings and can profoundly impact the culture. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Since most companies significantly impact the environment, from having on-premise workers that use resources to travel to and from work to the natural resources used in producing and maintaining their goods, taking a socially responsible approach to work is gaining attraction.

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    For example, some industries are realizing the impacts of their products on the environment and have taken business-conscious decisions that benefit the environment without impacting their bottom lines.

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    For example, Starbucks announced in 2020 that it is shifting its company philosophy to become a resource-positive business meaning it will look to gut its carbon, water, and waste footprints. The goal is to cut the impact of its products and services by half. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    One area where Starbucks is lowering its impact on the environment is its Carbon Neutral Green Coffee initiative that strives to conserve water usage in processing by 50% by 2030. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Additionally, Starbucks has announced that they will begin to implement a strategy to eliminate their single-use cups and begin to use reusable cups for every store in the next few years. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Also, Starbucks promotes inclusiveness and equality, making it a socially responsible workplace for its employees and customers. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    The benefits of being a socially responsible business like Starbucks are increasing brand exposure and, more importantly, improving its brand reputation. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    As seen by Starbucks, providing for a Corporate Socially Responsible (CSR) business offers various advantages. In fact, a CSR philosophy can;

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Empower company employees to take advantage of corporate resources to do good in their communities

    Bolster a company’s image and build upon the brand

    Boost employee morale and improve productivity

    Increase customer loyalty and retention

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Of course, not all CSR philosophies deal with environmental or social causes. Moreover, in some cases, being legally compliant, such as with various, constantly evolving [*link https://www.exiger.com/perspectives/russian-sanctions/ *]Russian sanctions[*endlink*] or sanctions about other geopolitical events, is essential for legal and perception reasons. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Whether your company is looking to make a positive impact on the communities, you serve or taking a more productive role in changing the corporate environment for the positive, embracing CSR has a distinct advantage on customers’ perceptions. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    While there are plenty of advantages, especially toward the long-term reputation of the company brand, many in ownership believe that adopting a CSR will hurt their bottom line. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Contrary to many business owners' thoughts, adopting a socially responsible attitude doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    While some owners think that lack of resources or financial impacts is a driver in adopting a CSR, the reality is that it is often a lack of long-term vision about the sustainability and advantages to their brand that limits ownership from adopting these new philosophies and practices. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    In the example of Starbucks, there are some financial investments toward their decisions for a more socially responsible, positive-impact direction. But the trade-offs in terms of brand reputation and customer loyalty far exceed those investments. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    One of the more significant ways that a little forward investment can positively impact your margins is that by adopting a CSR into your business, you will dramatically improve employee morale. 





    Lower turnover is essential in industries that require customers to feel familiarity and to build a sense of community, such as in service industry positions like Starbucks. 



    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    In B2B and manufacturing, creating a positive environment and culture aligned with larger social priorities lowers turnover, a significant driver in costs increasing due to the lack of productivity associated with employee loss. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Employees leave a company causing it to reduce productivity, decrease co-workers' morale, and increase the cost of hiring and training replacements. 





    Recognizing the advantages of adopting a Corporate Socially Responsible philosophy provides your company with a lot of positives. For one, you increase company morale and decrease costly turnover while boosting productivity. 





    Second, adopting a CSR that aligns with the more significant social trends puts your brand into better alignment and increases its reputation as a result. Companies that have better reputations tend to create more loyal brand customers, which in turn, increases long-term revenue.

  • Article title: How Executive Leadership Can Increase Employee Satisfaction
  • Article text: Satisfied employees are more productive and committed than their less engaged counterparts. While offering competitive compensation and benefits can contribute to employee engagement, company culture also impacts satisfaction.

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    As culture develops from the top down, leaders have the responsibility to create a workplace environment that is conducive to employee engagement. Here are a few ways leaders like you can directly influence your work culture to produce higher rates of satisfaction. 

    [*bold*]

    [*endbold*]

    Set Employee-Centric Values

    As a leader, you set the tone for the types of values that are upheld within your company. Employee engagement tends to go up when businesses establish a culture that places their needs at the center. 

    For example, companies can encourage innovation by supporting employee development and allowing autonomy over projects. Leaders must also foster a psychologically-safe culture where all team members can share their ideas without ridicule or fear. 

    You can establish psychological safety within your company by viewing failures as learning experiences. You should also explicitly state your values in your company-wide communications to reassure team members that a positive employee experience is a priority. 

    Invest in Employees

    Employees are any company’s most valuable asset. Unfortunately, many businesses do not invest adequately in employee training and development. If you want to ensure that your employees reach their potential, you must incorporate opportunities for professional development into the work process.

    For example, you can start workers on the right foot by implementing [*link https://eloomi.com/blog/employee-onboarding-tips/ *]new employee onboarding best practices[*endlink*].  This includes offering mentoring opportunities, self-guided training modules, and team building. 

    Ongoing professional development training should also be extended to current workers. There are multiple ways to make learning accessible. You can subscribe to a corporate account with an online course provider or provide a stipend for professional development classes. 

    Offering opportunities for career progression is also essential for retaining talent. As part of the executive team, you can ensure that your company has a solid pipeline to develop promising entry-level workers into potential managers and leaders.

    Encourage Two-way Communication

    Most communications in organizations only go one way: ideas and directions come from the top, and worker input is rarely considered. In companies with strict roles and rigid hierarchies, employees may feel too intimidated to raise their concerns. As a result, issues may be left unaddressed until it is too late. 

    Leaders can change this dynamic by encouraging open communication between all workers. The best approach to facilitating a discussion will depend on your company’s culture. 

    You can create an office hours system where employees are invited to talk to higher-level management about their concerns. 

    Be a Role Model

    In order for any company-wide initiative to succeed, leaders must align their actions with their efforts. You can spend time on the ground with every department to understand their work and show employees that their contributions are valued. 

    You must also demonstrate values that you hope to inspire in your employees. For example, acknowledging your mistakes and taking accountability gives all workers permission to do the same. Speaking to everyone with respect also helps foster an inclusive environment. 

    Measure and Evaluate Engagement



    None of the initiatives mentioned above can be successfully implemented without an evaluation plan. You will need to assess current employee engagement levels and areas that can be improved. You will also need to perform ongoing evaluations to make sure that your changes are making the intended impact.

    Some effective ways of assessing employee engagement include:

    Interviews: Schedule one-on-one interviews with new hires and departing employees to get a sense of the first and last impression of your company. You can also gather information from current workers during performance reviews and less formal conversations.

    Surveys: You can make use of your company’s communication channels such as email or project management software to send out short surveys to capture employee sentiment. Over time, you will be able to identify patterns that can inform your employee engagement programs. 

    For example, you may notice that employee satisfaction dips during busier periods. This can open a conversation about the support or system your team may need to improve their productivity. 

    Feedback: Give your employees several avenues to provide feedback. You can set up a virtual or in-person suggestions box or incorporate feedback sessions at the end of every project. 

    Indicators: Work with your human resources team and managers to identify reliable indicators for employee engagement. While these may vary by industry, common benchmarks include turnover rates and absenteeism.
