Healthcare, energy and commodity costs
What to expect and how to navigate upcoming challenges
While uncertainties exist in any given year, 2012 is especially challenging. In the U.S., a presidential election cycle will most likely push back hard decisions on government expenditures and taxes. Meanwhile, the European debt crisis, instability in the Middle East and China’s actions on everything from regulation to economic growth directly affect the prospects of many midsized American businesses.
With these issues in mind, senior executives will have their hands full devising ways to grow market share and increase margins while controlling costs. The goal of this white paper is to help manufacturing and distribution leaders gain a big picture view of key cost drivers for health care, energy and selected commodities, and offer short- and long-term steps companies can take to help control those expenses.
