Businesses tend to struggle to minimizing expenses to improve the bottom line because some of these expenses are needed to ensure that certain operational goals are met, i.e., overhead and advertising. Establishing a culture of employee engagement and allowing employees to articulate their ideas can help in reducing these costs. To encourage the employees to come up with innovative ideas, a quarterly price by way of a $25.00 gift card will be given to the employee with the best idea.
For a company to retain talent it must offer more incentives for the employees than that of its competitors. Your company encourages the decisions and ideas of the employees but more programs could be put in place to help retain employees. Implementing a program that offers rewards for time and cost savings not only benefits the employee but also the company by projecting a positive image of employee worth to the company.

Making sure that product is manufactured on time (taking into account any delays that may arise from overseas manufacturers) and ready for distribution when the consumer needs it. It is very hard for the dealerships to be able put their names behind a product that is difficult to keep in stock as todays consumers are on a “I want it now” basis. The advantage to this strategy is that if you have marketed and advertised properly, there will be demand at the dealerships from your product. If you are able to keep the dealerships properly stocked, then they will be pleased, as well as the customers and you will make your money back from all that costly advertising. A disadvantage would be that it will take resources to be able to keep items in constant stock and staff to ensure that logistics is running

As Anderson, Fornell, and Rust state, “To compete in such a world, firms must strike the right balance between their efforts to compete efficiently and their efforts to compete effectively.” Two arguments were discussed, one that customer satisfaction and profitability are well-matched. For example, customers that are satisfied can decrease, “the time and effort devoted to handling returns, rework, warranties, and complaint management, while at the same time lowering the cost of making future transactions.
