First impression count in the world of business and your office appearance paints a picture in the minds of clients that walk into your organisation. That first impression ultimately sets the tone for the relationship that will follow. It is important that your office/business premises are kept clean, sanitary and safe at all times.
Having a clean working environment is not just about making a good first or second impression. It also has a great impact on your business as a whole, especially internally because it will greatly affect the performance and morale of the teams you manage.
A clean working environment can boost the mood of your employees and contribute to their productivity because they will ultimately feel more comfortable in a well kept space. It may even make it easier for them to work longer hours when necessary due to the comfort level they experience in the office.
Reduced Sick Days
Companies with a clean working environment will have fewer employees calling in sick because the factors that could contribute to ill-health like germs are non-existent in a well maintained, sanitary and clean working environment. In other words, your businesses can operate at full capacity for longer by simply making sure office cleanliness is one of your priorities.
An untidy and cluttered office may very well be one major reason why your employees dash out of the office at the end of the day. An environment that is not well maintained can contribute to the lingering thought of, ‘I just can’t wait to get out of here’.
Having an office that has refuse not being disposed of or areas with heavy dust and grime is a major turnoff. When you have a business or working environment that is well organised, your employees will want to come to work and be more productive because their comfort is guaranteed. Sensory distractions like clutter and foul smells affect focus in many ways.
Cleanliness Contributes to Equipment Life
It’s a must to keep your electronic equipment clean, it is something that is often overlooked by many. Not only should your communal equipment such as printers, photocopiers, telephones and computer keyboards be sanitised regularly they should also be cleaned and dusted regularly to prevent fires and touch contamination.
As a manager you know first impressions count so we recommend sourcing a local professional cleaning company to assist you with maintaining a safe and hygienic working environment.
