The Mailroom – the forgotten facility
The first quarter of 2017 saw the UK’s private sector outsourcing market record its strongest quarterly performance in five years, with businesses agreeing deals worth £2.42 billion according to the Arvato UK Outsourcing Index. The outsourcing model continues to shape private sector strategy, enabling businesses to focus on core areas of expertise amidst a climate of increased competition. Nearly every aspect of business operation is covered - IT, catering, reception, engineering maintenance, cleaning, security, waste management, office space management - the list goes on. There remains, however, one essential component of corporate performance that is generally overlooked: the mailroom.
