Clean Offices Boost Employee Satisfaction

Fair compensation, a low-cost health insurance plan and generous time off are keys to boosting employee satisfaction. However, these aren’t the only ways to keep your employees happy and productive.

There is a connection between a clean work environment and employee satisfaction. Typically, employees prefer to work in comfortable environments. And unfortunately, many don’t feel comfortable when management neglects regular office cleanings. Even when everyone is responsible for tidying his or her own space, common areas in the office — such as the break room, lobby and restrooms — might not receive the needed attention.

Nasty, unsanitary conditions might compel some workers to seek employment elsewhere, and those who remain may deal with a variety of health conditions throughout the year.

According to studies conducted by health departments in the United Kingdom and in Southern California, “employees working at office spaces which failed to keep minimum housekeeping standards found themselves calling in sick and missing days off work in higher numbers than their counterparts working at offices which are kept nice and clean.”

Even if you cannot remove every germ lurking in your office, hiring an office cleaning company can ensure the cleanliness of your office, thus reducing the number of illnesses and boosting employee retention.

  1. I agree that the work place should be cleaned regularly. I used to work in a place where nobody cares about the cleaning. They called a people who maintained the offices in the building but they came once a month, so you can imagine how clean it actually was. Regards!

  2. I work in a company where the offices are being cleaned every single day. I think that the first impression of our clients is the most important. I mean , if the office is dirty and messy, well they won’t come back again for sure.

  3. You are absolutely right Kelly! I am in the real estate business and the office is one of the most important in this business. After all we sell real estates and if the office is a real mess then what kind of property we may offer to the client? Great article!

  4. I agree 100%. It’s important to feel comfortable in your work environment. I work in an office and I’m happy to say that it’s always clean and with fresh air. Great article!
