As the Executive Director of a non-profit organization I am always looking for the best value when it comes to equipment and service. Often it is a struggle to find that one company that can give you both at a level our organization can afford. I am proud to say that for the past 4 years we have been very pleased with Yuma Office Equipment. They worked within our budget, pairing us with the best copying and fax equipment, along with a comprehensive maintenance agreement. Offering same day assistance if something goes wrong, and knowing that their technicians are right here in town has added to my belief that they offer the best value. We appreciate everything that Craig Crossland and his staff do for Hospice of Yuma and recommend Yuma Office Equipment to any business looking to add new copying and faxing equipment.

Corporate sustainability is growing in popularity, as companies are increasingly aware of the impact their businesses have on the environment. One simple way to improve your company’s commitment to the environment is through a corporate recycling program. Implementing a recycling initiative is a greener way for your company to operate, benefiting both your bottom line as well as the environment. Here are a few of the perks you can expect to realize from participating in a recycling program.
Save money – Businesses are always looking for ways to contain costs, and a recycling program is an easy place to start. Simply reducing the amount of waste you produce will lower your waste removal and landfill costs. To really experience significant savings, combine recycling with a concerted effort to print less, implement duplex printing whenever applicable, and utilize energy-efficient office equipment. You’ll save money by using less paper, ink or toner cartridges, and electricity.
Boost your reputation – Statistics show people care about the environment and prefer to do business with eco-friendly companies. According to a report by Shelton Group, 66 percent of consumers said they would pay more for a product if it came from a sustainable brand. Business leaders are well aware of the positive impact environmental stewardship has on their company, with more than 90 percent of CEOs saying sustainability is fundamental for success. Companies demonstrating a commitment to the environment generally outperform those that don’t. A recycling program is a surefire way of improving your company’s reputation among clients and prospects, as well as prospective employees.
Increase employee morale – Employee engagement is a popular buzzword these days, as smart employers know an engaged employee is a more productive one. Most employees want to work for companies committed to the environment. This is especially true of millennials—the largest generation in the workforce—the vast majority of whom believe a company’s sustainability is important. Simply knowing they work for a socially responsible employer will help improve your employees’ engagement. Happier employees are also less likely to leave, reducing turnover rates.
