Most economists and financial gurus say that the economy is slowly starting to turn around. Heck, it might even have already turned the corner! What should you be doing? Preparing for the recovery.
This recovery is anticipated to be long and slow. To better position your business, consider emphasizing education, training and organization. With production being a bit low, now is the perfect time to reorganize your business structure or even your production area to streamline work flow. It’s also a great time to cross-train employees and have them keep current on technology, trends and business practices.
