Do you love going to work in the morning? Ok – we know that’s a big ask. But how do you feel when you come into the office?
The fact is, lots of people can’t answer that question. We can, especially when we’re stressed and busy, overlook the state of our workplace environment. People are infinitely adaptable. If it gets kind of normal for a few days or even a week to go by without someone vacuuming the carpets or wiping down the walls and surfaces, they might not even notice.
Yet it turns out that the things we might say we don’t even notice have an impact on the way we view our workplace, our work, our co-workers, and ourselves. We spend so much of our time in the workplace. The workplace environment can have a direct and profound impact on workplace morale, productivity, and staff retention.
Fall in Love with Your Workplace
We encourage business owners to try a simple experiment. Have our West Roxbury Janitorial Service come in and perform a deep cleaning without letting your team know about it in advance. Then wait for your team to come into work and see how they react to the freshly cleaned space.
Some people might not notice – they’re stressed out, busy, or too caught up in their phone. But then you’re going to start hearing the positive comments – how the office smells good, and looks good. Cleaner environments contribute to lower stress levels, reduced anxiety and have even thought to have a positive impact on interpersonal workplace relationships.
The other advantage of working with a janitorial service in West Roxbury is it eliminates the hassle of delegating employees to handle everyday cleaning tasks. While it’s theoretically possible for a team member to give the carpet a quick vacuum or clean the windows every now and then, the only way to maintain a consistently attractive and hygenic workplace environment is to have a skilled professional giving the job the attention it deserves.
