There is no doubt that clients and employees alike are put off by a messy, disorganized office. Having it professionally cleaned can actually save you money and improve your bottom line.
Here are 3 ways it will improve your business:
1. Reduces absenteeism
Cleanliness in the office doesn’t only look nice but controls germs as well. The number of people who are turning door knobs, pushing elevator buttons, using the phone or computers (especially shared ones), or frequenting the employee restrooms are sharing germs as well as work space. This is especially true in the cold and flu season.
Workplace absenteeism, because of illness, is a common problem for employers. Besides someone not being there it requires the expense of a substitute or requires other employees to work longer hours who need to be paid overtime. If there is too much sick time in the office, customers or clients won’t get what they need in a timely manner and may go elsewhere to do their business.
A regular professional cleaning and disinfecting of your office makes the spreading of germs much less of a problem. Here are some tips to keep your office healthier between professional cleanings.
2. Increases employee morale
Nothing makes it harder to come in to work than walking in to a dusty, unkept office or to a break room with a gross refrigerator or microwave. It’s not hard to imagine how a clean and tidy office, a few touches like fresh flowers or potted plants, or a few promotional items like new pens or desk calendars, could boost employee morale and increase productivity. We would all rather work in pleasant surroundings in a place where we know someone cares about our comfort. It makes us want to work harder because we feel valued.
3. Is more professional
One of the first things someone notices when walking into an office is sparkling clean windows. They might not even know why the room feels good to them. The trees outside just seem greener and the sunshine makes them feel happy. They get a good feeling right away.
Then, when they see neat, clean surroundings, they know they are in a more professional setting. Also, employees working in a more professional setting will act more professional and thus the company’s image will improve. Current customers or clients will be more likely to recommend your product or services to others. That, along with excellent customer service, will give your company a good reputation in the community.
