There’s almost a 100% chance the US will head into a recession within 12 months, according to the latest research by Wall Street investor think-tank, The Conference Board. That has some business owners thinking hard about how to recession-proof their companies right now.

In response, eSUB Construction Software is releasing four things businesses can do to recession-proof their companies. eSUB’s CEO, Erich Litch, says these tips are gathered from watching successful commercial trade contractors survive economic downturns.

“When the economy slows, so does commercial construction. So the trades must know how to survive those times,” Litch says. “We’ve noticed some common practices among the successful businesses we work with. We thought now would be a good time to share those with other industries.”

eSUB’s four tips to recession-proof your business are:

  1. Get a clear picture of your  company’s finances

  2. Be selective about new projects you take on

  3. Think twice about layoffs to cut costs

  4. Right-size tech tools

Litch says that last tip is an important part of creating operational efficiencies in the construction world. He says successful commercial trade contractors ensure their teams are using the right tools for their jobs and are not wasting time with inefficient processes.

“Part of the reason eSUB’s been so successful in the industry is that providing the right-sized tech specifically tailored to the work done by subcontractors is key,” Litch says. “If a company’s software is too big for the job or comes with unnecessary features, that can suck money from the business right when you need it.”
