As employers, we are often looking for win-win scenarios. How do we offer our product at a great price while still maintaining profit? How do we increase efficiency and keep employees happy? There are several business books written, and even more still being created, about the numerous ways to tackle all the management issues any business and employer faces.
One way we have seen a win-win for business owners and employees is through the outsourcing of commercial cleaning services. How is this possible? In these ways:
A Clean Space Builds Morale
Studies show that employees determine how much value is placed on them based on the cleanliness of their workspace. Imagine having to take a break in a dirty kitchen or feeling uncomfortable using the restroom because it doesn’t feel clean. On the contrary, clean spaces put employees at ease, reducing stress and building morale.
A clean space shows you care.
Commercial Cleaning Services are Outsourced
When employees can focus on their own jobs, rather than on cleaning, they can stay productive on what they do best. Outsourced commercial cleaning services also means your employees don’t have to do the “dirty work” that could cause job resentment. Part of this resentment could come in the form of having a lower payrate during cleaning duties, an increase in on-the-job injuries when staff aren’t properly trained to clean, or even a discrepancy in hours paid because of varying degrees of cleaning competence by individual staff.
Hiring commercial cleaning services keeps a healthy boundary around job roles and responsibilities, so your staff can focus on their best work.
Safe & Healthy Environment
When the wrong cleaning chemicals are used, you run the risk of not properly sanitizing an area, resulting in the spread of germs and bacteria. This can lead to sickness, and resulting sick days and lowered productivity – after all, an employee can’t perform their job duties if they don’t report to work.
Professional janitorial staff are trained in the proper products, application and use to ensure the healthiest clean, so your employees can keep producing.
Cluttered workspace can create a trip or slip and fall scenario. When a commercial cleaning company performs service, they clear areas of trash and debris, which also encourages other staff to keep areas clear. This is particularly important after remodeling where construction debris exists, including screws, nails, hardware, dust, dry wall and more.
Keep staff safe from accidents and injury, and protect yourself from lawsuits, with commercial cleaning.
Work Place Security
Employees typically will have a variety of access to sensitive areas, including chemical storage, personnel records, secured equipment and sensitive data. Commercial cleaning companies have screened staff who have the security clearance needed to keep sensitive information secure, and tidy, while also not posing a security risk. The commercial cleaning firm carries the licensing and bonding in the case of accidents, injuries, or in the unlikely case of theft, making the financial burden rest on them, instead of you.
With employee theft a major concern, limiting access to secure areas is more important than ever, but those areas need to be cleaned. Allowing a third-party janitorial service company do cleaning, reduces the chances of employee theft and access to secure areas. There is also no concern about a terminated employee having keys to a restricted area, as the janitorial service company privately maintains access keys.
Your business can save money by outsourcing commercial cleaning services by:
- Reducing employee theft (and insurance to cover it)
- Reducing potential employee injuries
- Reducing the spread of germs leading to sick days
- Increasing productivity
- Increasing morale
Commercial cleaning services provide a clean work environment, resulting in happier employees and a healthier bottom line!
