I've been a painter and decorator in Worcester for many years, and in that time I've mostly been self-employed, striving out under my own sail, sometimes with the wind behind me and sometimes into the face of an economic gale. I've grown used to the surprises that can come along, of how jobs can develop, and it has taught me that positivity can breed astounding results.
Since the New Year Worcester Decorators has seen more and more enquiries come in from businesses about office painting in the Worcester area. These range from the standard office type which needs an interior paint job on its office walls to the occasional work on more light industrial premises, or for a building owner who wants to paint the office in order to rent it out afresh.
I'm not sure if there's something in the water and if there is, if it's contagious (remember that event nigh on twenty years ago when there was something in the water and we couldn't drink from the taps for a week or so?), but office painting in Worcester seems to be the new growth area. Perhaps it's got something to do with existing office owners getting their rental offices shipshape and battle-ready before work starts on the new Worcester Business Park. Somehow I think that's too far ahead, but nonetheless, I'm thankful for it.
It just goes to show that when people want their offices spruced up, then broadly the economy must be doing pretty well. Employees want to work in nice places - it helps them feel valued and, as I said earlier, helps them feel positive about themselves and their role in the organisation. I almost feel that a good paint job on an office is akin to that old rhyme we were taught at school (I've had to Google it to refresh my ageing grey cells).
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
Now if we just substitute 'nail' for 'fresh paint' we have something like:
For want of fresh paint the reception's attention was lost.
For want of a reception's attention the phone number was lost.
For want of a phone number the lead was lost.
For want of a lead the contract was lost.
For want of a contract the business was lost..
And all for the want of fresh paint!
Fanciful stuff? Maybe, but it does contain a grain of truth, I think.
