Inflationary Pressure's Impact on Your Business

I’m sure that most of us have been discussing the business impact of inflation. It’s a hot topic these days. Many of us have likely had conversations on one or more of the following:

● How to protect our margins

● How to lock in raw material costs

● How to set multiyear contracts with our clients


While discussing these items in business strategy sessions is a necessary component of staying profitable through the 2020s, we’re curious: Have you also been discussing inflation's impact on your employees, at the personal level? And if so, have you been discussing how that impact on your people may also translate to impact on your business?


Inflation’s Impact on Your Employees

The employee aspect seems to be less discussed than the business impact. To help increase awareness, ITR Economics has teamed up with industry professionals to offer insight on the impact inflation will have on your employees' experience.

About The Great Game of Business

Our approach to running a company was developed to help close one of the biggest gaps in business: the gap between managers and employees. We call our open-book approach The Great Game of Business. What lies at the heart of The Game is a very simple proposition: The best, most efficient, most profitable way to operate a business is to give everybody in the company a voice in saying how the company is run and a stake in the outcome. Let us teach you how to develop a culture of ownership, where employees think, act and feel like owners.
