The need for flexibility these days is stronger than ever. We used to get up, dress, eat breakfast and then toddle off to work for 8 hours ad think nothing of how the office operated. Who does all the organising of the cleaning rota; who is it that cleans the washrooms, replaces the toilet rolls; the kitchen and that coffee machine . . . . The manager must think about these when he’s wondering how to deploy staff and funds. It is perfectly possible to deal with all these matters in-house. A rota can be used, but I’d put $1000 on there being trouble in week 3 when one of the chaps doesn’t pull his weight and thinks it’s a girl’s job anyway! Getting services included with the office rent is such a grand idea. You don’t have to worry about who or when. It comes as part of the deal, the landlord supplies – you just pay. Simple.
