When you’re responsible for hotel supply procurement, it’s natural to focus on product cost. After all, the impact of cost on your bottom line is easy to calculate and immediately obvious. But the relationship between cost and profitability isn’t so obvious.
Optimized Materials and Processes Make the Difference
Sustainability isn’t just a trendy word. It can make a measurable difference in the efficiency and profitability of your business—while also making you a better citizen of the planet. Here are five steps you can take right now for a more sustainable future.
It’s easy for hotels to overlook the power of a single TripAdvisor or Yelp review. But rest assured, consumers pay attention, and one negative review can ruin your reputation for countless potential guests.
Sustainability in commercial products and packaging isn’t new, but the heat is on. Most consumers feel it in taxes and bans on plastic straws, bags, cups, and more—plus the ever-changing advice about what and how they should recycle. For consumers, it’s mostly a matter of changing habits. But the heat affects manufacturers in more fundamental ways. Their compliance, reputation, and profitability are all at stake.
When you’re responsible for maintaining schools, restaurants, hotels, nursing homes or other facilities, the cleaning work you do has a direct bearing on the health of people who use those facilities—and on the economic health of the enterprise.
For facility managers, proper health and safety don’t just mean abiding by the assigned regulations. In reality, it goes much further than that.
One of the facility manager’s many jobs is to ensure that the floors in their building are constantly maintained. Dust and other allergens brought in by daily foot traffic can pose serious health threats to occupants and prove detrimental to your business’ workflow and overall performance.
Online bargain hunting, no-frills retailers, the boom in private label: All these trends and more are creating enormous pressure on brands to lower their total costs.
There are many factors to consider in order to ensure the successful delivery of a package. Brands can optimize their packaging processes by creating a checklist and following these appropriate steps.
