We hate to bang on about this, but it really is important to assess how much energy is being wasted in your office. Is your heating set to tropical? Are devices left on standby overnight? If so you will be paying far more than you need to on your heating. Check out our tips on how to reduce your energy usage when the temperatures drop.
Now is the time to make sure your staff have their Christmas holidays sorted, and circulate any policies about last minute time off, in order to manage expectations. Having your office party on a weekday? Now is the time to ensure that staff know what is acceptable with regards to coming into the office the morning after.
Whilst Christmas is a time for high spirits, it can also be a time for workplace boredom and low productivity. Who wants to be stuck at a desk when there are presents to be bought and mulled wine to be drunk? Spend some time in November to think of ways to motivate your staff – from incentives for performance to team awards.
If Christmas is a slow time of year for you, cash may be tight. Check that your business plan and targets account for this, and make plans to ensure that your cash flow won’t be too badly affected over the holidays.

Super helpful and easy to work with
"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."This review was posted by Mia Drew on the 29th of March 2017
An Extremely Competent Company
"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."This review was posted by S McMillan on the 29th of March 2017

Quick & Easy
"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."This review was posted by Amanda Brown on the 21st of March 2017
