If you are running a small or medium sized company it would be difficult to have staff dedicated to all the departments that a company usually needs to run. However these departments would also carry out an important function that is essential for the success of your company. What you can do in such an instance is to get some extra help in order to make sure that these functions are up and running without having the bear the high cost of getting additional staff to do these tasks on an in-house basis.
Getting some legal help
Legal work can be very expensive. Since your company is small it won’t have that many issues or queries that would require a full time lawyer. What you can do in this case is to retain a lawyer or a firm so that you can go to them in the event some legal dispute arises or if you want to get an opinion or some advice. Meanwhile they are not exclusively tied to your company and are free to find other work as well. This way you can pay them for the work that they do.
Getting some marketing help
If you have a product that you are selling to the masses you will need a good advertising agency to help you with the marketing. A good advertisement will help your product be memorable to people and this will compel them to buy your product as well. People love advertisements that are funny or creative. Therefore a good advertisement can help you convince them to pick your product over all of your competitors.
You have to also think of your brand image as a part of your advertising. Sometimes there might be issues with your brand such as a series of faulty products that somehow become released from your production line. These incidents can ruin the public relations that you have with your customers. Therefore you can hire a PR agency to help you sort this mess out. Sometimes you might even be able to agencies that specialise in your field such as an automotive PR agency in Singapore.
Cleaning and maintenance
You can also hire a cleaning staff to come in and clean your offices. Usually there should always be someone who can carry out these tasks at the office so they will have to work in shifts. A cleaning company has enough staff to organise these shifts. A small company cannot afford to hire multiple people to carry out the cleaning function so this way you are not left with paying multiple salaries for them.
