Contributed by the Diversified Maintenance Client Relations Team
With a workspace having multiple employees working in close proximity within enclosed spaces, it is inevitable for offices to have several germ hotspots. Around any typical office, regardless of its size, there are countless surfaces, objects, and common areas that are shared and touched by several employees which adds to the risk of transmitting germs and infection. While office cleanliness holds a great impact on office aesthetics, it is also critical for health and safety of employees and other visitors. Given the value of maintaining a thoroughly clean and disinfected office or headquarter, an increasing number of businesses are opting for professional facilities maintenance service providers to take up the responsibility for a wide range of cleaning and maintenance functions.
As the bottom-line is crucial for every business, keeping costs in check and control is important. Some of the most experienced companies have demonstrated that outsourcing the facilities maintenance tasks to their trained and skilled team is an effective approach to control and often reduce overhead expenses for cleaning, janitorial, and office maintenance than to recruit, supervise, and manage in-house staff. Although the control over cost is one of the most important benefits of working with an outsourced partner for facilities maintenance of an office, there are other key factors that make it a viable solution for all types of offices and headquarter buildings:
A fairly easy but substantial benefit – clean and hygienic workplaces are safe and healthy for employees. Without adequate cleaning protocols, the closed environment of an office makes it easy for germs and pathogens to spread quickly. Not only does a professionally clean office ensure that employee health and safety are not compromised, it also reduces sick leaves and improves employee performance and productivity. A trained crew is fully trained to meet all types of criteria for office cleaning and maintenance requirements and are aware of potential problems that can be proactively addressed before they turn into health hazards for anyone.
Consistency is a vital requirement for employees. It does not refer to identical tasks but it refers to the reliability and competence of an employee for delivering consistent performance standards across all tasks, and in order to do so, it is equally important for the surrounding to be consistently maintained. No matter what the facilities maintenance schedule is set for an office, professionally delivered services provide consistent results each time the on-site team visits to fulfill the predetermined scope of work.
Many research studies suggest that there is a direct relation between business success and employee morale. At the same time, there is a wide range of varying factors that play a role in improving employee commitment and morale. One such aspect is to enable the office staff and support team members to focus on their core job requirements without adding additional burden of cleaning and janitorial duties for them to fulfill. Secondly, other employees of the office also feel comfortable and content in a clean, tidy, safe, and healthy workplace when they know a professional company ensures regular execution of proper deep cleaning protocols.
Professional facilities maintenance service providers are equipped to conduct routine, daily cleaning tasks as well as broader maintenance requirements that should be performed every month or so. These companies also have the capacity to design a program with tailored services and schedules to meet the specific requirements and budget of each office. In short, businesses should work with a partner company for cleaning and maintaining their headquarters and offices to ensure all jobs are carried out to their and their employees’ satisfaction.
