I work for a small motel that is underperforming and suffering financially; it has a deficit of approximately 16% of the revenue generated.
There is only one staff member present at the reception area at a time, 16 hours a day, and there is an apartment with a door to the reception area.
I would like to suggest to the corporation that owns the motel that they let go the 3 M-Th staff and have me live in the apartment, work on call from there, and make commission only. There would be two part times working hourly F-Su.
This would produce a cost savings big enough to remove the deficit on years with crappy sales and open the door for the first profitable years in quite some time plus create an opportunity for me to get paid based on how much I actually benefit the company via taking over marketing and business-to-business networking (the first has been all but abandoned since I started years ago and the second has only been done when engaged by other businesses- there is no outreach.)
What can I do to be more likely to succeed in making a convincing proposal that includes some big changes? I want to illustrate the benefits and the risks.
