Cost cutting is not a FOUR letter but to a great many departments, it may as well be. Cost saving measures were not originally created to destroy budgets or morale. They were a way to measure the efficiency of operations and examine overhead to keep a business lean enough to be a contender for anything. As many businesses are now seeing, on average we can afford to trim some of the fat without significant impact on daily operations, for example the shift from office to remote. By doing this periodically and routinely, we can stem the loss of financial capital that may have been a better investment in other operations or by expanding products or services that you have wanted to try your hand at but capital funds were always just out of reach. So set up an action plan today on how you can continually stay on top of your costs!
