Otherwise, you’re at-risk to experience a negative Impact on your bottom line. It’s a fact that Office cleaning Impacts Employee Productivity. We’ve spent a lot of time going over the research. We’ve done some eGuides about the topic on office cleaning impacts on productivity, better business results and better net profits for businesses of all types.
How Office Cleanliness Impacts Employee Productivity
Think about it. When you’re at home, and your house is clean – you feel better. You breathe better. Same applies to office environments. A clean office environment promotes health, productivity and a better bottom line. The opposite can result in:
- Lowered Productivity
- Spread of illness (colds, flu) to other employees
- Increased Absenteeism, company-wide, due to Illness
- Lowered Quality of Performance and Job Fulfillment
- Spending additional time on tasks
- Decreased quality of work
- Lack of initiative
- Lowered ability to perform at peak levels
- Decreased quantity of work completed
- Inability to be social with coworkers
- Lack of motivation
- Transmission of viruses / illness to coworkers / building occupants / patron
Presenteeism. I’m Here. But Not Really.
Some employees feel obliged to stagger their way to the office – illness and all. But even a show of being a “trooper” isn’t always a good thing. Another very interesting finding from the ISSA study is how the impact of illness impacts the worker’s performance. And we would go a step further to suggest that their “not being there” in terms of energy and involvement can adversely affect everyone. Think about a group meeting. When all are engaged — ideas spark. When someone is coughing, sneezing, or obviously ill – it puts a damper on energy for all. Think of the ideas … solutions … new directions that your company can miss!
Office Cleanliness Impacts Profits
All of the above clearly indicate how office cleanliness can have an adverse impact on your bottom line. If employees are not at their peak – neither is your company’s performance. If there is a culture that promotes attendance, even when ill – think about the potential negative consequences.
Make a Resolution to Get Ahead of the Cleanliness Curve in 2016
Explore how your company/corporate culture may need revisiting. Are you promoting behaviors that may be hurting instead of helping your bottom line? Are you doing things to promote workplace and workspace cleanliness? Take time to walk through your office space and make quiet, unannounced assessments. DON’T make a big announcement. DON’T chastise. Observe first.
Best of luck & success for 2016!
