You and your employees spend the better part of the day in the office and it goes without saying that you all deserve a safe, clean working environment. Making sure that your office remains a safe and healthy place to work is of paramount importance to you and your business. Your commitment to office cleanliness can ultimately affect the caliber of recruits you are trying to attract, and the amount of turnover you have to manage with your current employees.
The relative cleanliness or sloppiness of your office is also a direct reflection of your business and your work ethic making hiring a professional building maintenance provider extremely important.
Your Employees Are Professionals, But Not Office Cleaning Professionals
While it’s possible for your staff to keep the workspace clean and tidy, participation in the level of cleanliness and consistency you desire is unlikely. Personal responsibility for one’s immediate work area and break-room cleanup are sensible expectations. However, if that role is unreasonably expanded, you run the risk of distracting them from the work they are being paid to perform. Even worse, assuming your “volunteer” efforts don’t pan out, you are creating an unhealthy setting that will in time become a metaphorical Petri dish for the growth and promotion of sick days.
Professional building maintenance personnel have expert training that allows them to sanitize office areas with specific methods and products to avoid cross-contamination and ensure cleanliness.
It’s easy to simply recommend professional building maintenance for your office, but more than just taking our word for it, there are clear economic and productivity-related advantages to leaving it to the pros, such as:
Better Resource Allocation
You’re hiring employees to do a specific job and the chances are pretty good that you’re not paying them to perform cleaning services. When you add non-productive responsibilities to the job description, you are keeping your team distracted from the work they are paid to do. A cleaning service relieves these folks of these unwanted tasks – saving you time, money and productivity over the long haul.
If an office is not cleaned thoroughly, you will eventually be facing an atmosphere filled with untouched dust, germs and assorted bacteria. This condition can exacerbate the spread of illness and will cause more sickness, more sick days and less productivity. A professional building maintenance service will help eliminate these conditions, utilizing the latest and safest cleaning products and methods to make certain that your team is less exposed to airborne hazards.
A study of London office workers conducted in 2015 revealed that 86% of the respondents strongly agreed that a clean workspace is important and 90% felt more productive in a clean setting. Demonstrating your dedication to a great working environment by investing your time and resources in a professional building maintenance team tells your staff that you care about their health and well-being. Employees who feel that they are valued are more positive about coming into the office and will respond to your commitment with their own, rewarding you with their loyalty and hard work.
