Cost Reduction & Control

Cost reduction within a company is often the product of decisions and actions deployed in an unstructured and uninformed manner. Unfortunately, many companies try to control or reduce costs only by indiscriminately cutting costs resulting typically in the premature loss of key resources, knowledge, compliance, risk and generally poor performance leading to service deterioration. These outcomes will deliver a negative impact on the FM operation, the ability to maintain compliant services, customer satisfaction, company turnover and profit. This culmination of negative outcomes will undoubtedly effect and place pressure on the entire organisation.
