Don’t cancel the hand sanitiser contract just to save costs

So you need to cut costs, tighten the belt.

So you cancel the hand sanitiser contract.

What’s the point of paying R500pm just so staff have clean hands?

Six months later you 30% of your team have taken at least one sick day more than usual.

Cutting costs = Cancel sanitiser = Sick staff = Less product = Less revenue = Less profit.

Always prune your overheads, but don’t be stupid.
