The Financial Impact of a Dirty Office
Any company, regardless of the size, does not want to spend money on things they believe, can be done “in-house”. The reality is that office cleaning is often the first expense companies eliminate when cutting expenses.
There is no doubt that it will save money on the short term, however; consider careful the long term impact this will have on your company and employees.
Germs are in the Air
The longer you go without cleaning, the more germs that will be floating in the air. Most companies in NY work in tight spaces, which mean, more people closely exchanging germs, higher employee call outs. Call-outs mean production goes down for a period of time, or tasks are completed by someone not typically familiarized with what it entails.
Mistakes done by staff that are not familiar with certain tasks reflects poorly on the company and may affect your business’ reputation. This will obviously cost you money and cause a decrease in profits.
Dirty office, Dirty Attitudes
No one likes to work in a dirty environment. This often times, leads to low staff morale. If employees see that their environment is not being well kept, concerns on the company’s actual potential to grow will start coming up. Dirty environments will lead to staff members feeling undervalued and result in low productivity. The staff will only do just enough and never beyond what’s asked of them .
More Dirt, More Mistakes
