4. They can help you solve lingering problems with your business. For example, you could give your employees incentives to solve slow production.

5. They can give you new ideas on how to cut costs and save money. For example, you could recycle damaged or old products instead of trashing them.

6. They can find new ways to improve your current customer service policy. For example, hire extra operators so you don't have to put anyone on hold.

7. They can give you new ideas on how to get the most and best out of your employees in the less amount of time.
