As increasing numbers of workers begin adapting to office life at home, many business owners begin to reflect on the safety of their organisation’s working environment and how this could be improved.
To help you and your staff return to a safer and cleaner environment, we’ve put a short guide together from the experts in eco-friendly commercial cleaning.
Why is Workplace Cleanliness Important?
No matter your industry sector or where your staff are based, maintaining hygienic work environments protects your staff’s wellbeing and happiness - ultimately encouraging productivity and efficiency.
In light of the recent inexorable spread of Coronavirus forcing many workers home, it’s become undeniably apparent that businesses may not be taking adequate measures to protect against this.
Illness is spread by the distribution of pathogens and these are most commonly transferred between people by sneezing, coughing and touching unclean surfaces. The most frequently transmittable surfaces are often the ones most easily forgotten, like doorknobs and push surfaces on fire doors.
With over 80% of infectious diseases being most commonly transmitted by touch, it’s more important than ever to protect yourself, your staff and your business.
Provisions for the cleanliness of the worker environment can boost employee morale by creating a sense of belonging and worthiness within the organisation.
If staff feel cared for by the business in a safe environment, they are more likely to be focused in their work and willing to put in what it takes to yield the best results.
Essentially, what’s good for staff is good for business!
It’s not uncommon for modern business spaces to be frequently visited by clients and prospective business and a clean environment leaves a good impression on both its employees and its visitors.
Ensuring that both the people in and out of your organisation are reassured of your priorities being your staff will boost your businesses image.
