Most business owners would agree that time is the most valuable asset of all. However, many of the same owners and employers overlook utilizing a key role that not only saves them time directly but also keeps their workforce operating efficiently. For any company that operates inside their own space, utilizing a dedicated facility manager makes a difference that quickly becomes exponential to workplace morale, risk mitigation, and even bottom line profits.
Utilizing a Facility Management Expert
For business owners who like to manage their own facilities, we refer to the words of Stephen R. Covey, businessman and author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”Stephen R. Covey
An adept facility management expert will not only keep your building running smoothly but also help set up your workforce for a successful workday by implementing industry best practices into the management of your facilities. According to the latest Fundera statistics, cash flow is the reason why over 80% of businesses fail, so the notion of even one major setback in the workplace can be catastrophic to your business, especially if avoidable. Joe Hartmann, Principal and VP of the Facility Management Division of BlueChip Pros comments.
“Aside from all the training and trade secrets a good facility manager brings with them, the real advantage is the ability to be proactive in avoiding costly setbacks that a business can [and usually will] experience when taking a more reactive approach.”Joe Hartmann, Principal and Vice President of Facility Management
Main takeaway, buildings of all sizes seem to find ways to keep management busy with unnecessary distractions that take time and energy away from reaching that next level. Prioritize your profits and stay focused on what matters by finding a facility manager that will handle all aspects of your building – so you can handle your business.
