As business slows,as it surely will, you need to focus like a laser beam on the basics that got you where you are today… marketing, fine-tuning your pricing, improving your firm’s productivity (as measured by SPE) and trimming the fat in every corner of your operation. This is not the time to coddle lazy or unproductive employees. This is not the time to be apologizing for your prices. This is not the time for excuses. This is the time to be more proactive in your business than ever before. Your employees, at least the good ones, will follow and support you, but YOU must point the way. As an aside, we are fully confident that the dozens of studies and specialized reports published by NPRC can help you focus on what you need to do and how to do it. No other printing association can make that claim.
