The Benefits Of A Clean Business
Posted on 30th August 2018 by Keith Hirst
Running a successful business means ensuring a huge number of individual factors are working together in a cog-like system to reach a final solution. One cog, which can often get overlooked in a busy company, is maintaining a clean working environment for both employees and customers. By neglecting cleanliness, the system will begin to fall apart in various ways, and so we’ve created this article to highlight why we believe keeping your business clean is the key to success.
First impressions are a hugely important part of running a successful business. Growing and expanding your company will often mean making new business relationships; some of which will be very picky about who they’re associated with. Inviting a high-level business associate into a messy environment will reflect badly on your company and likely hinder your chances of making new ties.
Likewise, for customer-facing businesses, customers will be less inclined to return to companies that they found to be dirty and disorganised. A messy business often reflects on the work ethic of the employees and business owners, and so an uncleanly environment is going to reflect poorly on your business and earn it a bad reputation.
Maintaining a clean business is not only beneficial for external visitors, but also for your employees. Constantly working in an unclean environment can lead to health hazards that may risk your workers’ health. The buildup of dust, germs and bacteria can all contribute to a less safe working environment. This is going to make your business less appealing, potentially costing you job applicants who would otherwise have applied for a particular role. More concerning, however, is that many of your workers may get sick as a result of the conditions, and perhaps may need extended time off work to recover.
They say a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, and studies have shown that working in a cluttered environment distracts workers from being able to think clearly. Running a clean business, and thereby keeping things orderly, will increase productivity in the workplace. Workers can think more freely and are better able to come up with new ideas and use their initiative.
Perhaps the most obvious response to why a business wouldn’t hire a professional cleaning company is the cost involved. Many employers and business owners may feel like their finances are better used elsewhere. However, as this article has shown, the cost of not keeping a business clean can be hugely detrimental, and will likely far exceed the costs involved in hiring professional cleaners. An absence of business and customer relations, poor reputation, employees taking extended time off work and a lack of productivity will all impact the income of your business. Not only are these issues going to cost your business money, but the amount it costs will likely far exceed the cost needed to hire a professional cleaner. Thus, hiring a professional cleaner should actually be considered as a sound investment.
