We often times overlook the importance of a clean work place, but it is absolutely necessary for employee productivity, morale and most importantly, health. Here are just a few ways hiring a professional office cleaning company can help your employees stay happy, healthy and productive.
We've all felt the satisfaction of an organized and dusted desk area, or freshly vacuumed floors in our office. It gives us a sense of readiness and motivation to be the best we could be that particular day. Almost as if the cleaned office gives us a sense of a fresh start. This is because cleanliness breeds satisfaction. Once that sense of satisfaction has begun, we want to keep that feeling alive for as long as possible. As a result,we do everything in our power to keep it alive, such as completing those expense reports that aren't due for another three days, or following up with our clients as we have been meaning to do for the past week. A clean work space allows employees to feel at home, comfortable, and it gives them a renewed energy that they wouldn't otherwise have in a dirty work area.
A clean work area will allow your employees to feel a sense of pride for their workspace. This will motivate them to keep it as clean as possible. Feelings are contagious, this is something that can spread throughout your office and become a norm. Soon employees will share with their coworkers how clean and efficient their offices feel. This makes people feel really good about where they work and who they work with knowing that everyone shares the same opinion about cleanliness and the reduction of germs, and bacteria. This mutual feeling will promote collaboration, team work, and positivity within the office.
Less bacteria and germs being spread throughout the work area can dramatically reduce the amount of sick days being used per week. A healthy employee is not only a happy employee, but also a present employee. We want to keep everyone healthy and happy so they can do their job without suffering with cold or flu symptoms, especially during the winter season. Although it’s important for employees to be present, a dirty office can also affect their mental health even if they aren't sick. Many of us overlook the idea that a dirty office makes us feel less motivated to succeed and less energized. This is due to the idea of feeling trapped in a dirty workspace. Looking through a dirty window, seeing a bunch of floating dust as the sun shines through the window blinds, or even seeing smudges and dust on the desk can bring out these negative feelings. This is why it is extremely important to hire a company that pays attention to even the smallest of details. It is extremely important to keep our employees happy and present. We want them to succeed, and if they don't succeed, we don't succeed.
