Keeping your business running smoothly and efficiently takes a lot of hard work from both you and your employees. But what if your employees simply aren’t fulfilling their end of the deal? Employee absenteeism costs the British economy around £100 billion every single year. That’s around £500 per employee! So, how can you reduce this issue and increase efficiency and productivity in the workplace? Well, professional, regular cleaning is a great option. And here at Cleaning North West, we are Preston’s leading cleaning experts. We provide high quality cleaning solutions for homes, offices and even retail. As a result, we have produced this guide to professional cleaning to improve workplace efficiency.
Professional cleaning to improve workplace efficiency
So, how does professional, regular cleaning influence efficiency in the workplace? Well, there are a number of reasons, including:
- Reducing employee absenteeism- In the UK, the average employee loses nine working days a year to sickness! These are often contagious illnesses that could easily be caused by a lack of workplace hygiene. The office kitchen, toilets, and even your own keyboard could be harboring some nasty bacteria or virus microbes. Regular, professional cleaning will eradicate these and significantly help to reduce the spread of illnesses and sicknesses around the workplace.
- Reducing lost time- Even when you have a full set of employees, time is still lost in the workplace. From finding documents and paperwork in a messy office, to being distracted by items out of place or missing, employees can often miss out on valuable working time, because of an untidy workspace. Professional cleaning can help you keep on top of your office space so that it is tidy and presentable, as well as useful for your employees. This means your staff will be more focused, and your work will stay on track.
