In the modern-day office, every minute counts. With the rapid pace of business, the emphasis on efficient workflows has never been greater. However, amidst the daily grind, there's one area that's often overlooked: package deliveries. Traditional mailrooms can quickly become chaotic, leading to lost or stolen packages and unnecessary trips that interrupt an employee’s workflow. Enter the solution: office package lockers.
The realm of office security extends beyond mere safeguarding of premises and company resources. In today's multifaceted business landscape, it touches on everything from data protection to ensuring employee well-being and happiness. This intersection of responsibilities falls under the purview of workplace managers. As businesses adapt to more flexible work arrangements, the role of these managers becomes paramount. They orchestrate a secure environment that fosters trust and productivity, ultimately contributing to happier employees.

As we near the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are actively planning strategies to return to regular operations for their office personnel.

For a company to be successful, it needs to find ways to save time and money and use those resources to grow their business. Many businesses receive important packages or hard copy files on a regular basis and need an efficient way to manage and locate these assets. Insurance companies, for example, receive stacks of vital (and sometimes irreplaceable) paperwork from clients daily. They also need to send out paperwork for hard signatures. Without a mailroom and corresponding staff in place to manage this, it can be difficult to sort through this paperwork and make sure nothing gets lots. This can result in hours of lost time or even lost files.
One company in particular, a top insurance company in Canada, experienced these issues and desperately needed a solution. They approached our team at Luxer One, and we solved their most pressing accountability and document-tracking problems. Together, we were able to future-proof their business from future growing pains. In this case study, we interviewed a company representative about their experience implementing Luxer One and the impact it has had on their daily business.
When job candidates are searching for a new career, potential salary is only part of the equation. They're also looking at other factors such as commute, benefits, Glassdoor ratings, and unique job perks that a company might offer.
