January is the “reset button” of months. It’s all about new beginnings and starting fresh. This is the month we vow to change our poor eating habits; to rev up our sedentary lifestyles; and certainly to declutter, clean and organize!
But it’s not just your home that needs attention. Everyone who has ever been distracted by the chaos in the office knows that clutter blocks productivity. And while you’re working on organization and efficiency, take a good look at hygienics too. Because cleanliness could actually impact a company’s profit margin.
We’ve all heard the rumors of how dirty offices and office equipment can become. And it’s all true! If left unsanitized, an office can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. That’s because viruses like the flu can survive for up to three days on desktops, phones, and computer keyboards.
Maintaining a high level of cleanliness in the office is important for employees and customers alike. Employees working in an unsanitary workplace tend to get sick more often, which forces them to take more sick days. And sick employees can’t effectively service customers.
Now that you know that tidiness and cleanliness go hand-in-hand with profits and productivity, we have two words for you – take action! You tackle the decluttering, let SFM take care of the janitorial, and revel in your orderly and successful workplace!
