Can a Clean Office Boost Productivity?
Productive employees are invaluable to any business because these are the people who contribute the most to company efforts, finish projects, create products, and make the company successful. A clean office means more industrious employees contributing to company efforts. But how exactly does a clean office impact employee productivity?
With an average of 9 sick days per employee, per year, this lost time from more distractions, more illnesses, more genuine sick leave needed, adds up to extra time spent out of office, pushing back deadlines, finding other employees to fill in on tasks for those out sick. Employees who feel continuously sick from working in an unhygienic space lose motivation, hamper productivity and have low morale, leading to less amount of work, and less good, meaningful work, being done.
The takeaway from all of this is that a greater amount of better quality work is done when employees are situated in a clean working environment. Several reasons could be the link between clean offices and greater productivity. We explore those below!
6 Ways a Clean Office Will Boost Productivity
In a clean office space or working space, an employee will be less distracted by clutter or dust or by how they are not feeling so well. This means a greater level of concentration on work being done, which leads to more work, more efficiency of doing the work, and a better work product.
Less Time Wasted
So much time is wasted with trips to the bathroom from not feeling well, sneezing, coughing, looking amongst the clutter, losing documents, and dealing with other things that can come from a dirty working environment. Less time wasted means more time spent on meaningful work.
Less Sick Days Taken
An uncleanly working environment often results in staff circulating colds and flu to one another, which means multiple staff falling ill and a large amount of sick leaves being taken by more than one individual. A sanitary space helps cut down on employee absenteeism.
Greater Company Profitability
Workers who are healthy get more work accomplished, which means greater company profitability. Businesses lose money when workers take sick days and get behind on assignments and projects. Sickness is a greater burden on business owners than the cost of a cleaning crew!
Boosted Company Morale
There are few things more detrimental to short- and long-term company profitability as well as day-to-day operations like bad morale. And bad morale comes when people are grossed out by the space they have to work in. They do not look forward to coming to a place they feel makes them physically ill. Employees who are in a clean space are healthier and happier and have better mental health, brightening their mood and keeping them motivated to do good work.
Good First Impression
Your company will always have an audience- whether it is passersby, current employees, potential clients, or a new hire. You don’t want to send someone running by the first look at your lobby or office. A clean appearance retains staff and says a good deal to a client about how you care for your company, staff and employees, and how you will treat them. Promote your professionalism with a clean space.
