By managing your call centre’s energy use, you can reduce the amount of energy consumed, which in turn can decrease your monthly bills.
To reduce energy usage, consider the following tips:
Reduce the energy consumption of your call centre
Encourage staff to be more mindful of their energy usage. Ask employees to switch off and unplug their devices when not in use. Allowing staff members to occasionally work from home will also help reduce your monthly energy usage.
Adopt a cost-cutting closing routine
Implement an end-of-the-day closing routine. Ask employees to turn off any computers and equipment as they leave their workstations. Turning off the central heating will also help reduce overnight gas usage.
Review your call centre energy bills
One of the most effective ways for businesses to reduce their annual electricity and gas bills is to switch to a cheaper tariff.
A lot of businesses are overpaying on bills because they are on tariffs that are not suited to their needs. Businesses may also be overpaying because they have missed their contract renewal date and got moved to higher, out-of-contract tariffs.
Call centres should, when their contracts are due for renewal, engage and negotiate with energy suppliers for a better rate, to reduce their average business electricity prices and bills.
Reviewing your energy contracts will also ensure that you get a better energy deal and pay a more cost-effective business energy tariff.
