To keep your premises safe and presentable at all times, you’ll need to rely on site support staff. From gardeners to cleaning services, site support is a vital part of your company team so you should look to find the very best. The trouble with hiring these types of professionals is that you may only need them for an hour or so each day – maybe even less. You need to find reliable staff who are flexible and don’t mind working less than ten hours per week. It’s a tough task!
Maintaining a commercial building is a huge job and you need a variety of skilled people on call. You might not need an in-house electrician but that one time when you experience a blackout you’ll wish you had one. The trouble with site support is you don’t need the staff often enough to justify hiring them yourself, but when you need them you really need them. So what’s the solution?
Most small and medium businesses outsource the majority of site support roles. For example, you can hire an external cleaning services company to service the business property as often as it requires. You can also hire ad-hoc support staff for building maintenance such as a handyman, gardener or plumber. You probably won’t need these services often but by using a support services company, you will be able to access the experts whenever you need them.
Here are some tips for finding the best site support staff.
Everybody needs a handyman from time to time! From painting and decorating to other odd jobs, sometimes you just need a jack of all trades to help out. It can be difficult to find a reliable handyman unless you hear of one through word of mouth. You might also find skilled workmen on websites such as TrustaTrader.com and Rated People. You can also hire a handyman through support service providers such as Regional Services.
Choose a contract cleaning service which is local to your premises and which can be tailored to your business needs. If you think the building only needs cleaning once every two days, then you don’t want to pay for a seven day package. Also consider whether you need any speciality cleaning, such as windows, hard floors or carpets. If you hire a company which offers everything, the times when you do need an extra service it will be easier and probably cheaper than appointing a different service provider.
