WHAT CLEAN RESTROOMS MEAN TO EMPLOYEES
It’s no secret that sanitary restrooms are important to your customers. But did you know that clean facilities are also critical for a positive, motivated and productive workforce? It’s true, and here’s why:
Dirty Restrooms Can Make Employees Sick
Germs thrive in grimy environments such as an unkempt restroom. Properly cleaning and maintaining these areas can reduce your employees’ exposure to disease-causing bacteria and viruses, preventing them from being sick and keeping them at work.
83% of consumers believe poor restroom conditions directly reflect the value management places on employees.
Poor Restroom Maintenance Can Lead to Turnover
Dirty restrooms probably won’t be the leading reason an employee chooses to seek other work, but it could play a contributing factor. According to the Healthy Hand Washing Survey from Bradley Corporation, 83% of consumers believe poor restroom conditions directly reflect the value management places on employees. Well-maintained facilities will not only help you keep up appearances but also show your team you care.
Cleanliness is Motivating
A study conducted by HLW International LLP reported that a clean work environment resulted in a 5% gain in employee productivity. When employees have a work setting that’s kept in tip-top shape, it creates a welcoming atmosphere and subconsciously encourages team members to put forth their best effort, both individually and collectively.
