Business services are activities that benefit companies without delivering tangible goods. They cover a wide range of aspects of the commercial world and encompass a major portion of the economy.
A company might hire animal control professionals to handle occasional pest infestations in the workplace, or use construction services to remodel or expand its workspace. These types of business services can help employees maintain a clean and safe environment that contributes to their productivity.
In addition, some business-to-business (B2B) service firms provide a variety of technical services like consulting, accounting and IT support to other businesses. These services can be important in helping to build the competitiveness of a company and improving its profitability.
Other types of business services include the hiring of IT support professionals to troubleshoot problems with computers and other technology. These workers can help to improve the productivity of a company by resolving tech issues as quickly as possible. Many organizations also rely on delivery services to receive supplies and materials, which can save time and money while allowing employees to work from home or other locations outside the office.
