What does a nationwide labor shortage and inflation mean to your business?

Inflation is affecting everything - even your employees.

Right now, we're seeing labor shortages all over, businesses in need of employees, and a lack of people applying has been driving up the wages being offered in an attempt to get people to come work. This, coupled with inflation across the board for goods and services we use regularly, can be very concerning.

But what does it mean for your business? You may see an increase in your day-to-day running costs with the costs of goods increasing as well as a potential shortage on the number of employees you need for your business to run. With that shortage driving up wages and tightening profit margins, you have to be even more conscious about optimizing operations in your company. It can be a scary outlook with all that's going on. But there are always ways forward that can help keep your business running smoothly. If you focus on maximizing the time with the employees you do have and outsourcing what you can; you can get maximum productivity from your employees and keep your business on track. One of those areas you can consider outsourcing is your fleet fueling. Studies have shown that, on average, an employee spends 20 min each time they refuel. You can check out our previous blog here for more info.

So, depending on how often your employees are refueling, this could add up to multiple hours being lost each week/ month that could be better spent elsewhere.

So instead of letting your employees waste valuable time fueling vehicles, think about what investing with a fleet fueling service could do for your business. They will fuel your vehicles on a schedule that works best with your business, optimizing your employees; time, so it's better spent on the activities that make your business run. Instead of wasting it on tasks that can be outsourced to save you time and money!
