Godsend Concierge Service will offer a wide range services to customers. The tasks for the employees will range considerably; however, the underlying need will be for services/errands made during normal business hours, hours the employees are at work and the company would rather have the employee at work being productive instead of running an errand.
As corporations recognize that their employees now have less time to spare, they have begun to partner with concierge firms to provide their employees with additional compensation. We will be targeting large corporations in Eugene such as Hyundai, Sony Disc Manufacturing and Levi Strauss. Medium-sized firms include Burley Design Cooperative. Palo Alto Software. BikeFriday. Larger law firms and medical offices are also available.
While many corporations offer concierge services for employees, it is more common to have an employee do the work. The concierge service is viewed as a perk by the employee but is not as efficient for the company. GCS can provide concierge services to companies at a lower rate.
We can also help individuals who realize the value in having someone else take on tasks that they don’t have the time or decide it isn’t worth their time. We will market to this segment through word of mouth.
