Having a clean and orderly office is one of the most important components of your brand and improves your ability to grow your customer base. A neat and put together office environment is inviting and your clients will be more likely to do business there. Often business owners will enlist their employees to help take care of the cleaning tasks in the office instead of hiring a local, professional cleaning company. Here are a few reasons why they should rethink this:
1. Employee Productivity Will Drop
This may go beyond a typical, bad employee "not my job" attitude. Asking your productive sales team, service professionals, or other representatives to clean the bathroom or mop a floor can impact how they feel about their job. Like it, or not, janitorial tasks are not glamorous, and most employees feel slighted when given such tasks. They also tend to struggle to be productive if they are constantly being bothered to do things besides their actual job. Avoid bad feelings and let the professionals take care of things for you.
2. Poor Work Product
Chances are you hired your expert sales staff for their ability to close a deal, not their ability to scrub a toilet. If you delegate your janitorial needs to your employees you might notice a poor result from their cleaning skills, and then what choice are you faced with?
3. Decreased Customer Satisfaction
Imagine your clients are coming in for a proposal or signing a deal, and your garbage's are overflowing, and the floor is still covered in last weeks gunk. Might not be the best look. Now, not every client you have will react this way, but some will and that may be a concern for you long term. It is important that your customers see you at your best at all times.
Some may think that asking your employees to clean the office is a savvy way to save money or a way to build your employee's belief in the brand, but that is simply not true or effective. Instead of risking these potential negatives, hire a professional commercial cleaning company today.
