Spick & Span! 3 Real Reasons To Keep Your Office Clean


Office workers can spend 40 hours or more per week in their workspace so you owe it to your staff to let them work in a pleasant environment. There are many reasons why you should keep your office clean, but today we’ll concentrate on just our top three incentives.

Here they are...

Healthy


An unclean office is a breeding ground for ill health.

Some studies have revealed that a keyboard can be home to more bacteria than a toilet seat!

Germs, bugs and viruses, such as colds and flu, spread more easily in a dirty environment meaning that more of your staff will be susceptible to falling ill.

And more illness in the office leads to more sick days being taken. So, by keeping your office clean and tidy you’ll be looking after the health of your employees and also reducing the number of days taken off due to illness.

Reducing the number of sick days which office staff take each year is also healthy for your bottom line too. The number of staff hours that are worked each year has a direct effect on profits at year end.

And it’s not just germs and bugs that we need to think about. Allergies can also plague offices which are not cleaned properly. Dust in the workplace can lead to employees suffering from itchy eyes, runny noses and all manner of other things while they are in the office.

So keep it clean, and keep everyone healthy!

Happy


A clean office is a happy office.

As we said at the outset, your employees spend an awful lot of time in the office. Some office staff spend almost the same number of waking hours in the office as they do at home.

So, try to make your staff as happy at work as they are at home by keeping their environment as clean as they expect their homes to be.

A side benefit of a happy office is that any customers who visit the workplace are likely to catch on to the feel good factor and be in more of a ‘buying’ mood. A happy office could lead to more sales.

Productive


Cleaning your office thoroughly leads to better air quality in the workplace. And many studies have shown that air quality is directly linked with productivity. By keeping your office spick and span you’ll be boosting everyone’s energy levels and getting more from your staff.

Cleanliness also leads to better office organisation. Files go back in the right place meaning information can be found more quickly.

Boost your office cleanliness and you’ll have a direct impact on staff productivity too.
