If you’re a team leader who notices that your people aren’t as happy or productive as they might be, take a moment to objectively consider the condition of the workplace. After an extended period of time working from home, employees are highly sensitive to what conditions are like back in the office.
Items to consider when assessing the appearance and hygiene of the office include:
The appearance of the workplace: does the space appear clean and tidy, or is there clutter, dust, and cobwebs making the office look rundown and tired?
The smell of the workplace. When you take a deep breath, what odors are you breathing in? Is the air in the office pleasant and clean or are there lingering smells that have to be endured?
The condition of doors, windows, and any interior glass walls. Are these clean, attractive, and free from smudges, or is the glass streaky and covered with fingerprints – and worse?
The condition of carpeting and other flooring surfaces. When you look down, are you seeing a clean attractive floor, or has the residue from other people’s shoes created a stained and grimy surface?
The health and well-being of your employees. Have people been staying relatively healthy and able to work, or have there been high rates of absenteeism related to contagious viruses traveling through the workforce?
