NEW INDIANPOLIS BUSINESS HELPS MANAGERS CONQUER TO-DO BACKLOG
Simply Helpful relieves leaders of operational tasks so they can focus on strategy and bottom-line
Indianapolis, IN – September 13, 2012 – The trend of assigning more responsibilities to a limited size staff has been seen across industries. In a recent survey completed by TD Bank*, 35 percent of small businesses report being somewhat or significantly understaffed;
Founded out of the need to do more with less, Tara Elder created Simply Helpful, an office assistance company that provides a variety of support services on a contract basis to businesses throughout Central Indiana. The Simply Helpful team relieves leaders of operational tasks and paper management, freeing them up to be more focused on their core strengths. Procedure creation and streamlining services are also available to companies who may be interested in finding ways to become more efficient.
“Managers are just not always able to maintain the day-to-day operations of a business while focusing on the higher-level evaluation and decision making activities that will impact their long-term goals.” Tara Elder, owner of Simply Helpful states, “In reality only the ‘on fire’ activities are going to get any immediate attention, to the detriment of highly important but not extremely urgent items that tend to fall off the radar of over-worked management.”
“Simply Helpful plows through tasks that I abhor in such a poised, professional and perceptible manner,” Laura Lea Sweney, Owner of Irvington Wellness Center comments, “I have so many hats to wear as a small business owner - it feels great to be confident about giving a few hats to someone else to wear.”
Unlike other staffing agencies, Simply Helpful is a local small business that does not require up-front fees or long-term commitments. In the three months since the official launch of Simply Helpful, the company has taken on ten new clients and has hired one full-time staff employee to meet the demands found in the marketplace.
Elder states, “I am thrilled that Simply Helpful has been able to provide the services needed by managers to allow them to be more strategic, proactive and competitive in customer relations and time management, which directly impacts their bottom-line.”
