At the end of a busy month, there’s no denying that sigh of relief as you turn the page of the calendar knowing tomorrow is a new month. A fresh start of 28, 30 or 31 days lies ahead. Life is 5% what happens to us and 95% what we choose to do with what happens. A fresh start is often all we need to invigorate our sense of purpose, rejuvenate our mood and motivate us to set new goals.
There is no doubt a fresh start in our personal lives is positive, but have you ever considered just how invaluable a fresh start in your workplace would be? Spring cleaning your office is a great way to encourage a fresh start for employees. Here are just a few surprising benefits that a spring clean can bring to your business:
- Increase the Productivity of Employees
- Reclaim a Professional Look and Feel
- Eliminate the Spread of Germs and Bacteria
- A Change is as Good as a Holiday
Increase the Productivity of Employees
Before commercial cleaners can complete a spring clean, employees will have to ensure their desk is clear of clutter. Files, Papers, Folders and Stationery can all accumulate on desks so a spring clean is a great reason for employees to catch up on filing, archiving and clearing their desk. It is proven that people think clearer and are more efficient and productive when they have a clean and clutter free desk. Staff morale will also increase as there’s no denying we feel more relaxed and comfortable in a clean environment. High employee morale can help your business achieve its goals and decrease staff turnover too.
Reclaim a Professional Look and Feel
A professional employee takes pride in their physical appearance and their work area too. We all know those workers with used cups, empty food wrappers and an army of crumbs on their desk. A professional look can easily slide as employees get busy so eat lunch and meals at their desk. A spring clean will result in a clean and clear workspace again which will reclaim that great impression of an employee to outside clients or customers and their fellow employees too.
Eliminate the Spread of Germs and Bacteria
Cold and flu germs can spread like wildfire in workplaces. Have you ever noticed how one employee comes to work with a sniffle, then by the next week every second employee is sneezing, coughing or blowing their nose? Plus did you know the average office desk can host more bacteria than a public toilet seat. Yuck! A spring clean allows commercial cleaners to give each workstation a more thorough clean than a weekly or fortnightly service and for items like phones, keyboards, air conditioning vents and door handles to be sterilised too. Keeping the spread of germs and bacteria to a minimum is a positive for management as it can decrease the number of sick days taken by staff too.
A Change is as Good as a Holiday
An annual spring clean is a great reason for management to move furniture or office equipment for a new look and feel. It is also a great time to dispose of the hand towels and tea towels in bathrooms and kitchens and replace with a brand new set and to have the carpets steam cleaned to eliminate any stains and odours. It’s a great reason to buy some indoor plants or fresh flowers for the reception area and some pleasant smelling fragrance reeds or diffusers for bathrooms and staff rooms.
