Empowering Small Businesses: Local Enterprise Offices Launch a Helping Hand

December 05, 2023

All In A Day's Work campaign to boost efficiency, cut costs, and enhance sustainability

The life of a small business owner is demanding, requiring constant attention to various aspects of the operation and challenges continue with rising inflation and the energy crisis.

To support these hardworking individuals, the Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) have launched a new campaign called "All In A Day's Work." This initiative aims to empower small businesses across Ireland by providing resources and guidance that will help them save time, money, and energy.

At the heart of the campaign lie three key programs: Lean, Green, and Digital. These programs offer practical solutions to common challenges faced by small businesses.


Lean: Streamlining Operations for Maximum Efficiency

The Lean program focuses on identifying and eliminating wasteful practices within business processes. By streamlining operations, businesses can reduce costs, improve quality control, and increase overall productivity.


Green: Embracing Sustainable Practices for a Greener Future

The Green program encourages businesses to adopt eco-friendly practices, reducing their environmental impact and contributing to a sustainable future. This can involve energy conservation measures, waste reduction strategies, and the use of eco-friendly materials.


Digital: Harnessing Technology for Growth and Innovation

The Digital program equips businesses with the knowledge and tools necessary to embrace digital technologies. This includes enhancing their online presence, adopting e-commerce solutions, and utilizing digital marketing strategies to reach a wider audience.


Impactful Success Stories: Empowering Businesses to Thrive

These programmes have a significant impact on companies. The average cost saving per business from taking part in the programmes is €34,000.

The "All In A Day's Work" campaign is already making a positive impact on Irish businesses. Rascal's Brewing, a Dublin-based craft brewery, utilized the Lean program to streamline their production process, resulting in a 20% efficiency boost. This newfound efficiency has enabled the company to invest in new equipment and expand its production capacity.

Another shining example is Bon Chocolatiers, a chocolate maker in Westmeath. By implementing the Green program's energy-saving measures, Bon Chocolatiers achieved a 15% reduction in energy consumption. These cost savings have strengthened the company's position in a competitive market.
