The cost-free way a small business can boost profits

sponsored by


If you are trying to boost profit, grow your business or hit end of year targets, then there is one thing you can do right now that requires little to no investment and which could unlock thousands of pounds in profit.

Getting your employees to take small actions in their daily routines that reduce their energy, water or raw material use can translate into massive end of year savings. Take The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort in Scotland as an example. Management there identified over £73,000 worth of savings just by working with staff to reduce waste across the business. 

That is why companies as diverse as offices, hotels, restaurants and corner shops have made cutting costs the first step in their yearly growth strategies. Businesses that work with Resource Efficient Scotland - a programme funded by the Scottish Government to help businesses maximise profits by improving efficiency - save on average £16,000 a year by reducing resource use.

But even businesses that appreciate the value of this tried and tested strategy struggle to access the tools, time or know how to effectively engage staff in high value resource efficiency campaigns. 

Resource Efficient Scotland is a programme funded by the Scottish Government that can help small to medium sized enterprises (SME) in Scotland dramatically reduce their costs by motivating staff to make small changes to their behaviour. 

As part of this support, Scottish SMEs are encouraged to order a free professional communication pack from Resource Efficient Scotland. The packs contain eye-catching posters, room thermometers, stickers and other motivational materials deigned to get your employees saving money for your business. Packs are only available while stocks last, so register to receive one today.
