It’s an easy assumption to make that cleaning an environment only gets rid of bacteria. However, did you know that investing in regular deep office cleans can improve the productivity of yourself and your employees? Let’s find out more.
Employee sick days
A clean office means that there are less harmful bacteria hanging around communal areas and desk workspaces. Because of this, yourself and your employees are less likely to catch something while working, leading to a smaller likelihood of calling in sick.
This improves productivity because your employees are healthier and getting more work done on a more regular basis – not to mention the paperwork that’s involved with sickness management.
Employee retention and satisfaction
It’s common knowledge that employees will work more productively if they’re in a clean environment; clean desk spaces mean more area to work within, as well as less clutter leading to less time spent searching for items such as important documents.
Not only this, but cleaner offices could also improve your employee retention rate as they’re more impressed with the work environment. This, in turn, aids productivity as you’re able to spend less time and resources investing in the recruitment of new employees, and more time spent working alongside your current employees to get more jobs done.
One of the lesser-thought about the benefits of keeping your office clean is the impact it has on the surrounding equipment. For instance, if one office is dusty and full of bacteria, equipment such as printers, computers, and copiers could operate at a reduced rate as the extractor fans and wiring gets affected.
And of course, employees could treat the equipment in the same manner as you treat their workspaces. If you demonstrate that you care about the environment they work in by investing in cleaning services, then they’re more likely to respect the equipment – this leads to a longer lifespan of your assets and, in turn, higher levels of productivity.
