A new study conducted by the Association of Cleaning has been featured in the European Cleaning Journal indicating that the level of office cleanliness in businesses has a direct affect on employees’ productivity.
As well as high standards of cleaning impacting employee productivity, it has also been found to contribute to the general satisfaction of employees. Simply put, employees are more satisfied when their office is clean and are perform more productively at work.
The study found that when the office environment was clean, employees would be happier and do a better job, which is great for any business. It also found that Women are more picky about cleanliness than men.
The results show that, as a business owner, you are able to contribute to your client’s employee satisfaction by simply providing them with a clean environment to work in; proving that cleaning should not only be considered as a luxury expense, but as a service that can add value to a company’s core process.
If the results of the study aren’t enough to make you consider cleaners, maybe the effects to your bottom line will.
