10 Tips to Make Your Business More Proactive

Running an organisation efficiently is a challenging task – one that’s made worse when proactive measures aren’t taken to simplify processes and cut costs. Here are just some of the key areas where failing to implement preventative action could be affecting your success…


Machine downtime costs UK businesses around £18 billion a year

3% of all working days are lost annually in manufacturing due to faulty machinery, equating to 49 hours of work and £31,000 per company.


Allowing 100 desktop computers to be idle for just two hours a day could cost your business £780 every year.

For every 100 lightbulbs left on for 2 hours unnecessarily, your business wastes £471.12 annually.

In 2018, 30.7 million working days were lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury.

Injuries and ill health from current working conditions cost businesses an estimated £15 billion.


Health and safety fines are £75k higher than the cost of compliance.

The latest research found that businesses paid an average of £115,440 in fines after being found guilty of health and safety breaches.

17% of businesses fail because they lack a business model, whilst 18% fail because of pricing and cost issues.
