Doing More, With Less

July 15, 2020

With more than 30 million people currently unemployed in the US, there are many corporate vacancies out there.  The problem is, things still need to get done in many instances.  One of those instances is building repairs and maintenance.  Now, while many sites are shuttered due to the pandemic, there are far more that are operating, albeit at reduced traffic levels; but still require various levels of maintenance.  Even closed locations that eventually plan to reopen once the “all clear” is given, require some sort of maintenance if occupiers don’t want a hefty to-do list when they walk back in the front doors.

This means, for many, that there is a ton of work to get done, with fewer internal resources to oversee the work.  Engaging with a trusted partner to be a true extension of your organization and team is the only way to get timely repair and maintenance services completed in a short window.

Andrew Gager writes for Facilities Net:

“Outsourcing work to an organization that specializes in facility maintenance or a needed skill can be an attractive strategy for managers. The process removes the responsibility of many activities that managers are accountable for and ensures that the contractor provides qualified and competent resources and services. 

A contract service provider also can offer specialized services for which managers might not be able to justify adding full-time, in-house staff. Many contractors offer a full range of facility management services, wrapping several possibilities together under one contract. These bundled services can make managing the process much simpler and more convenient rather than forcing managers to oversee a full staff and deal with human resources responsibilities.” (full article can be found here:–18953?source=part).

This is exactly the time where an organization like TCG can jump-in and shine for national companies with geographically-dispersed portfolios, regardless of industry.  We are the ultimate pinch-hitter, and this is the spot where you need a big hit from your trusted teammate off the bench.  Let us know how we can help you do more with less in these difficult times.

Be well,

Chris currently serves as TCG's Director of Sales. In an organization like ours, that doesn't mean non-stop selling (although, we are growing). In this role, it's all about connecting with our customers (both new and old), providing the highest level of service, and being an escalation point when jobs go sideways (let's face it, this is facilities). Prior to joining TCG, Chris worked in FM Business Development and Operations for 11 years in the Commercial Real Estate industry, serving hundreds of national customers, identifying hundreds of millions of dollars in savings, and building FM Operations Teams from the ground up.
