Little signs


Most of the big costs have been cut out of businesses by now:

  • Job cuts
  • Budget cuts
  • Perk cuts (no more free lunches, massages, group activities)

Now we’re into the home stretch of little cuts (paper cuts if you will).

Next time you visit a company’s office look for:

  • Broken chairs
  • Frayed cords and power adaptors
  • Fruit (and good quality food) replaced with junk food and sugar (cheap)
  • Broken monitors
  • Meeting room computers not updated
  • Slightly messy kitchen (the cleaning staff roster has likely been halved)

This is how you know, as a supplier, that you’d better provide something truly valuable if you want your invoices to be paid.
