Happy Copiers Equal Happy Employees


What is one of the most important yet most overlooked variables when it comes to employee satisfaction? You might be surprised to learn that the answer is "copiers." Copiers are a huge part of just about everything your company does, so it makes sense that a frustrating copier would make for a frustrating day. How can you avoid that, keeping you copiers and your employees happy? Let us explain.

Copier Woes

In today's day and age, copiers are rarely "just" copiers. Either they're fast, efficient multifunction systems, or they're connected to every device and network in your office--and most of the time, that's good news. The only problem is that this can sometimes lead to frustration if your copier isn't doing its job properly or if your processes are outdated. Luckily, it's easier than you might think to make sure that copiers are fulfilling their potential so employees can fulfill theirs too.

  • Make sure you have the right tools for the job.

If employees can't do their work because they lack the proper equipment--namely, a reliable and efficient copier--, then happiness is a thing of the past. It's crucial to make sure you have the right make and model of copier for your company's unique needs, and that it can handle the demands of an everyday workflow.

  • Consider an upgrade.

Before you start thinking about huge price-tags, remember that out-of-date copiers are probably costing you way too much in energy consumption, consumables use, and maintenance--plus, they don't work like they used to, which can't make your employees happy. Upgrades help you save money and employee sanity.

  • Analyze your copy processes.

Sometimes, it's not the copier's fault at all. It's important to make sure that your processes aren't frustrating employees by being inefficient or by causing excess frustration when it comes to network connections.
