A scalable business is one that can perform well under an increased or expanding workload. This means it can easily grow without being hampered by its structure or resources (manpower, materials, etc.) when demand increases.
What Does it Mean for a Business to be Scalable?
“Too much business is never a bad thing” is a phrase we’ve all heard before, but is it true? If your business isn’t scalable, too much demand can actually be a bad thing. Take, for example, a small business that becomes an overnight sensation. Suddenly, their orders jump from five-a-day to 500. There’s a good chance this two-person operation won’t be able to meet their clients’ demands — a.k.a. the business is not scalable.
The Increased Demand for Home Care Services
When compared to other generations, Baby Boomers have a sizeable presence in the population. In 2016, there were an unprecedented 74 million Boomers living in the United States, making them the largest living adult generation.
With nine out of 10 Americans over the age of 65 wishing to stay at home for as long as possible, the demand for home care services has never been greater.
