Savvy Savings.. from an Admin Perspective

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that most companies, local as well as global, are scrutinizing budgets, making cuts to staff and canceling events to save money.

As an admin, we may have the opportunity or the perspective of seeing potential savings that others may not see right away. I think it is important to keep a little side log of the savings potential you think would help the company or your department. Every little bit of foresight helps you, your boss and your company. It could also come in mighty handy during that next review when a promotion is available or the financial picture starts to brighten.

Think about the areas we work in – on a daily basis- that would allow us to take a closer look.

Copy costs
Toner costs
Telephone costs
Travel
Shipping
Office supplies
Temporary staffing services
Courier services
Catering
Cab fares
Postage
Promotional goods (mugs, company shirts etc..)

And, as the saying goes, :”Time is money.” If we can save our supervisors or team members even more time, we’re saving them money.

Just a thought that came across my noggin today I thought I would share.
Have a great evening.
