We came across a pretty neat article on Yahoo.ca (you can read it here) that talks about a survey conducted by Staples Advantage Canada that linked a cleaner office to lead to more employee productivity.
We couldn’t agree more!
Keeping a clean workspace is not just good for your employee’s health, but also to getting the maximum out of your employee. According to the survey, 94 per cent of the respondents indicated that they feel more productive with a clean workspace, while 77 per cent stated they produce higher quality work in a clean and organized environment. In addition to being more productive, 60 per cent felt that better implementation of health and wellness guidelines would decrease illness at work. Of the customers polled, 45 per cent admitted to going into the office when sick, thereby spreading their germs throughout the workspace.
While 95 per cent of respondents felt they maintained good hygiene and a clean office environment, only 37 per cent admitted to cleaning their personal workspace daily. maintain good health at the office.
So, what does this mean for the employer?
If your office isn’t clean and needs some TLC, get on the phone and find a reliable office cleaning company for a cleaner office. Your employees will appreciate it, and it will boost their productivity as well. Furthermore, if your office doesn’t offer this, it’s never too late to offer hand sanitizers around hotspots such as doorknobs, desks, photocopiers, lunch rooms and bathrooms.
This will surely keep your office cleaner and reduce the chance of a virus being caught – leading to less sick calls and more productivity.
