Improving your processes can be a cost-effective exercise, as well as necessary to maintaining the quality of your product or service as you grow. Seeking an accreditation can increase productivity and efficiency, in addition to serving as an added reassurance to your customers.
Operationally, outside influences such as outsourcing can have a direct impact on your cost and customer satisfaction. Plus, if you are outgrowing your existing premises, you may be finding it a challenge to upscale your operations and transform your business processes.
The York and North Yorkshire Growth Hub can work closely with you to overcome these issues and provide support aimed at preparing your operations and processes so that they can sustain your future growth plans.
We can help you with:
- Business improvement and development
Improving existing business practices is key to evaluating efficiency, improving workflow and optimising services.
- Outsourcing and contracting
If you’re looking to outsource a work process for accounting, HR support, or IT services, we can recommend external providers that will work best for your business.
- Process mapping and planning
We can help you with defining your goals, documenting your current workflow and modelling new processes.
