There are many things, but for this post, we are going to be looking at some ways to improve efficiency and the customer experience that tend to get overlooked.

Health and Safety.

Are you keeping on top of everything you need to be when it comes to health and safety in the workplace? This means making sure you following local and national laws to make sure you are up to scratch when it comes to compliance.

Staff Training.

Things such as making sure staff members have suitable training for the job and they are aware of any rules and regulations to follow in your industry. Especially important if your staff need to operate any machinery. Being fully trained in how to do their job can mean they work at a better pace as they feel comfortable and confident in their role. This will also enable them to make sure they can provide a better service overall which is important for keeping your customers happy.

Equipment Repairs.

Another area to look at is repairing or replacing broken and worn equipment. Whether you're working in an office or a factory, if the technology or machinery isn't working correctly, it makes everyone's job a little bit harder. Tools such as Fluke testers are available to hire should you not want to buy brand new, so you can test your equipment to make sure it is all working as it should be.


Outsourcing can be the best service to utilise for smaller businesses. Especially solo entrepreneurs. Outsourcing your day to day tasks to qualified professional with experience can mean that not only do you not have to hire staff. But, you can also benefit from the professionalism the service gives off as you can be confident tasks are being taken care of as they should be in a timely manner.

What can you Outsource?

Tasks you can outsource include, call answering services, accounting tasks including filing tax returns, social media management, website and internal IT structure maintenance to name a few. This can leave you more time to make sure you are doing what you need to do to keep your business running well and growing as you need it to.
If you are competing with bigger, more established businesses in your sector, utilising outsourcing can help you look more professional, especially if you are a solo outfit, competent and on the same playing field as others.
