Beyond the well-known benefits like better hygiene that a clean office brings, there are plenty of other reasons to invest in keeping your office space clean. Even small things can contribute to the overall benefit, and it’s often these that can have the most impact on your business and it’s employees.
Nobody likes to work in a messy space. It’s distracting, confusing and off-putting, hence why keeping a clean working environment is imperative to uphold the happiness and comfort of your staff. Many studies have shown that a clean and tidy working environment can increase productivity amongst a workforce, especially in open-plan offices where other staff members’ mess is visible and distracting. People are much more likely to enjoy working in a clean and bright environment, rather than a dirty one.
If you hold regular meetings with clients in your office, your primary objective is to impress them. So why would you bring them into a messy environment? You wouldn’t. You’d put every effort into making sure that the office is sparkling clean in preparation for their arrival. However, if you look at it from the other point of view, how would you feel about going to a messy office? You almost certainly wouldn’t feel like they were a professional business or that the service they can offer you will be high quality.
Air quality can play a huge part in the productivity of people in a team. If there is a lack of fresh air in an office, then the motivation to work declines massively. Hence, it’s important to keep the air free of contaminants like dust to keep your staff motivated and healthy above all else. With 1 in 12 adults suffering from asthma – keeping your office space dust free and clean will make a big difference to your employees.
How much more work would you get done if everything was exactly where you’d expect it to be? This is the same for your employees, by keeping everything tidy and organised your staff can get more work done because they spend less time looking for resources. Keeping your office space organised with an intuitive system means employees spend less time fighting through what they don’t need only to end up not finding what they were originally looking for.
