QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Stretched Resources
Q. I oversee 50 plus bank branches in the Houston, TX metropolitan area. I take care of all FM issues at all of the branches, as well as putting out bids for jobs, working with vendors, coordinating projects, etc.
I have only two employees working for me, and they are on the trucks taking care of daily branch issues. I am the most understaffed facilities manager in the entire southeast system, yet I am supposed to do the same amount of work/projects as my counterparts, who have more staff and fewer branches.
How do I learn to make the best of this situation, knowing I will not be hiring any new staff in the near future? My boss says it can be done but gives little indication as to the methodology for doing the job as is.
