After all, your business is complex and takes a lot of attention in a lot of different areas to keep it running. Sales, new hires, client fulfillment, research & development, securing supplier deals, marketing, and so much more – it’s all pulling you in so many directions at once that it’s easy to let things slide.
Things like maintenance and repairs. Things that on their own are just a minor inconvenience to you, but they can make a big difference in the lives of both your employees and your clients.
After all, employees are much happier when they work in a well-maintained space. Sure, cleaning and repairing the aging paint on the walls or unclogging the toilet in one of the washrooms might be a hassle, but it can contribute to a better workforce who might actually look forward to coming to work each day. This can be great for your bottom line – after all, happy employees are productive employees.
And that’s not even considering your clients and prospects. If you host meetings at your office, basic maintenance can be the extra push you need to impress your prospects and close a new deal, or retain your existing clients.
But you don’t have the time to fix everything yourself. And even if you did, you might not have the skills to do it. And it’s not worth it to hire a full-time maintenance worker.
So what do you do? You can call a general contractor, but they’ll likely tell you the job is too small. But it’s a big deal for you. You can’t just leave things the way they are, but you can’t fix it yourself. Is there anyone who can help?
