WHY OFFICE CLEANING PLAYS A BIG PART IN A HAPPY, HEALTHY WORKPLACE
Walking into a sparkling clean office is like being greeted with a smile. It shows us that the business we are visiting – whether as a customer, employee or other stakeholder – cares about our experience. It enhances the firm’s reputation and gets people spreading the word in the right way.
This is the first thing to understand about your office cleaning schedule: it is a part of your brand identity and leaves those who visit you with a powerful first impression one way or another. If everything about your logo, advertising, website, uniform and staff telephone manner emphasises that your company cares about what it does and pays attention to detail, anyone walking into your premises would feel let down if the workstations, carpets and other surfaces look shabby and neglected. Trust – it’s hard won but easily lost.
The perfect answer is, of course, contract cleaning from a reputable cleaning firm like Servicemaster Manchester. Whatever the size of your business and whatever sector you operate in, we can provide the dedicated cleaning personnel, the cleaning products, the equipment and the elbow grease while you relax and focus on your core business.
But the benefits of professional office cleaning go beyond appearances and brand sentiment. The cleanliness of your office directly impacts on productivity and profitability.
The Importance of Professional Office Cleaning – Some Sobering Statistics
Absence and disorganisation are two of the biggest time thieves business owners have to contend with and both of these problems are made worse in a cluttered, untidy and unhygienic workspace. No business owner sets out to make their staff ill but if you continually neglect your office cleaning that’s inevitably what will happen.
For example, the average employee is absent for nine days a year with 60% of all absences attributable to bugs such as e.coli and staphylococcus picked up from workplace equipment. Hardly surprising when you realise that nearly two-thirds of office workers share computers and devices and there are over 25,000 germs per square inch in a dirty office (with around 7,500 bacteria on the average keyboard).
Viruses, like the flu, can also linger for over 24 hours if they are not dealt with promptly through effective cleaning. Servicemaster are compliant with several stringent environmental and health and safety standards so you can rest assured that your workplace won’t just look clean on the surface, it will be healthy and hygienic underneath too.
Moving on to disorganisation: It is more important than you might think to be able to locate documents properly through having tidy and well-organised workstations and filing systems. A study by the International Data Corporation revealed that businesses lost a whopping £1.9 million per year due to the time wasted searching for documents.
Put simply, employees working in hygienic, organised conditions will be far more productive.
