Default Idea Help For My Company Contest

I am not sure if anyone can help, but the company I work for (Architecure Firm) is having a contest. The winner get a 32" LCD HDTV. We have to suggest ideas on how to save the company money or better improve the business. The best suggestion gets the TV. Any ideas? I could really use this TV. Thanks everyone!

be observant and look for things that you think might contribute to the betterment of the company. i don't know your company policies and rules, but if there is something there that creates a negative impact to the workers, maybe you should work on that. a company who has happy employees are generally better off.

Things that you could do now that will not only have an impact on your finances today but will carry far into the future. Think about all the contracts your company has with suppliers and vendors. Can these be renegotiated for better deals. These vendors and suppliers are also feeling the pinch of the economy and should be willing to renegotiate deals to keep your business. Do you rent or lease? Could be time to see if you can get a better deal. Where do you get your phone service from, your internet, etc? Can these be renegotiated? Go through your P&L line by line - item by item and see if there are contracts for services that you can get a better deal.

Just some thoughts
