1) Decrease Clutter & Associated Costs – Hopefully it doesn’t only happen once a year, but a good clean up can help your office in a few ways. Less clutter will allow employees to better focus and save them time by finding things easier. Companies can save money on things like paper, data storage and other business costs by seeking virtual solutions that will also de-clutter the office environment.
2) Keep Your Team Healthy- Refill the hand sanitizer dispensers and whip out the disinfectant wipes. Offices and office equipment can accumulate a huge amount of germs with how much they are used, and the variety of people using them. Keeping surfaces, handles and equipment cleaned and disinfected will help to prevent those fast-spreading sicknesses that make their way around the workplace. Keeping employees healthy will assure 2 things: 1) Productivity will be kept at the highest possible level with more employees in the office and 2) Employees taking time off for leisure purposes rather that sick days will improve morale and overall quality of work.
3) Improve Office Attitude – Studies have shown, working in an uncluttered environment with a good ambiance can improve people’s attitudes resulting in better quality of work production. It’s pretty simple, if people are happier as a result of their environment, they are more likely to put more energy, quality, and more effort into what they are doing.
Now that you have reasons – get to cleaning – it’s officially Spring!
