Ensuring your workplace is clean and sanitary is an obligation to all employers. A clean and presentable work environment not only keeps staff happy and healthy, but also keeps productivity high throughout the day.
It’s important to remember, that a messy and unclean office space looks unprofessional and can even be distracting to employees and guests of your company. However, a clean office is easier to work in, less distracting and looks professional, smart and tidy.
A clean workplace (especially if you share toilets, showers, and food surfaces) is also key to keeping staff healthy, and therefore in good attendance through the year. Unclean workspaces can cause illness, resulting in sick staff, and less profit.
