It can be difficult to stay motivated at work sometimes. With most of our waking hours taken up by work, it’s not always easy to be productive every day. Many Leeds employers wonder how they can improve productivity, and sometimes the answer is as simple as improving the work environment. After all, if your workplace is a mess, then you’re not exactly going to be happy about going to work. That’s why commercial cleaning is important, whether you work in one of the newer offices in the city centre or on Latchmore Industrial Park. Here are just a few reasons why.
It’s easier to find things
Clutter is annoying when you’re trying to get work done. If you have a cleaner visit regularly, then this can encourage people to follow clear desk policies. Regular de-cluttering means that it’s easier to find the things essential to your work, so it’s worth booking commercial cleaners to visit a couple of times a week. This helps to keep staff organised, and means people are encouraged to keep the workplace tidy.
Let the light in
Natural light is important to health, and workplaces that have lots of light are much more cheerful places to work. Studies have even shown that natural light improves productivity, so if you’ve moved into a building such as Platform in Leeds city centre, then it’s important not to block the floor to ceiling windows. Keeping windows clean is also important, so booking commercial window cleaning ensures that offices feel bright and fresh.
When employees come to work in the morning, they want to be able to start their job right away, not have to clean up. Some workplace areas that can get especially dirty include:
- Bathrooms – nobody wants to have to clean the bathrooms at work, so ensure they’re cleaned and checked regularly
- Kitchen – a pleasant kitchen can encourage people to take breaks away from their desks, which is good for productivity
- Reception – your reception needs to make a first impression, and you don’t want employees to have to run around cleaning
- Meeting rooms – when you’ve had an important meeting, cleaning is often the last thing on your mind, so it’s important to have someone to come in and tidy
Avoiding workplace drama
Even if you draw up a fair rota for cleaning, some people will skip their jobs, which means others will have to pick up the tasks. This can breed resentment, and can lead to low morale. By using an office cleaning company, you know that jobs will be carried out to a high standard and on the days you want it done, which can make the workplace much more harmonious.
