By Melanie Camacho, Sharp USA: One record-breaker we know all too well is the soaring cost of gas. As of June 13, the national average per gallon is $5.01. In California alone the cost was $6.42…ouch! To make matters worse, inflation is at 8.3%, an all-time, 40-year high.
For most people, disposable income is shrinking. I find myself in the dairy aisle considering the cost of organic vs. regular milk and making the unfathomable decision to cut my Netflix subscription, but what about business owners? The weight on their shoulders is getting heavier and P&L sheets are taking a beating. Tough business decisions are being made like raising the cost of goods or contemplating layoffs.
Times like these call for creative measures. Readjusting departmental budgets is a start, but if you take a closer look around you, there could be wasted money hidden in plain sight. You might be wondering, where to begin? My recommendation is a workplace technology assessment. It can provide numerous benefits, but right now the focus is to recover wasted expenses.
Here are five ways a technology assessment can help offset the rising cost of fuel and inflation.
