More warnings of retail job cuts and higher labour costs

29th Feb 2016

We’ve seen a steady stream of articles like this one in The Times. Based on a press release from the British Retail Consortium, it warns of large job cuts in Britain’s shops as a result of the increase in the minimum wage/living wage.

There is no doubt that labour costs are going to increase. One way a business can mitigate these rises is by using labour more efficiently and this is an area where we can help. Handling of waste and recycling is often incredibly inefficient; every time a box or back of shrink wrap is handled , it takes time and adds costs to your business. Our equipment helps you to process waste at source, reducing handling (and staff time) and creating a tidier, more productive workplace.

QCR equipment is being used in some of the country’s biggest retailers and proven cost savings which ends up directly on the bottom line.

If you’d like to have a chat with us about how we might be able to help your business reduce costs, you can contact us here...
