Employees More Productive in a Clean Office Environment

Employers go to great lengths to make sure that their employees are happy and satisfied. After all, employee turnover can have a negative effect on a company’s bottom line. Further, no business owner wants to lose a valued and productive employee.

One factor that greatly influences employee satisfaction, but unfortunately is often overlooked, is the cleanliness of the office environment. No one wants to come to work every day and be surrounded by dust, germs, and mess. Further, when offices are not cleaned and disinfected regularly, germs that cause sickness can spread, leading to increased absenteeism and loss of productivity.

Statistics show that employee morale is higher in clean offices because employees are better able to focus and accomplish tasks. Think of it this way, when your office is clean, it conveys to employees that their company has high expectations. Dirty, unkempt offices, on the other hand, create an atmosphere of chaos and disorganization.

While some business owners balk at the idea of paying to have their office cleaned by professionals, failure to do so can cost them even more money in the long run. Many of these same business owners believe that they can simply dust and vacuum their office periodically and get the same results they would get from a professional office cleaning company. This is absolutely false.

To keep offices clean, break rooms, bathrooms, conference rooms, reception areas, and individual offices must be dusted, vacuumed, and disinfected at least once a week. Professional carpet cleaning also should be scheduled on a regular basis.

Still not convinced you need a professional office cleaner? Consider these facts:

1. Twenty-five percent of water cooler buttons are considered to be a serious risk for disease transmission.

2. Office desks have been shown to be 400 percent dirtier than toilet seats.

3. Three-fourths of all washroom sink handles spread contagious diseases.

4. Bacteria on uncleaned hard surfaces increases 31 percent each day.

5. Office telephones have approximately 25,000 germs per square inch.

If keeping your employees happy, healthy, and productive isn’t enough of a reason to keep your office clean, there is another significant one. Potential clients and customers judge businesses by what they see. A sparkling office space will inspire a great deal of confidence in all who visit your company.
