The importance of a clean workplace

From establishing a positive reputation to preventing employee absenteeism, a clean workplace can have a huge impact on the running of your business. In light of the current pandemic, employers should make the effort to ensure all workplaces are safe and practising good hygiene. This includes implementing the necessary health and safety precautions to prevent the risk of coronavirus. According to the latest government consensus, it is the duty of employers to manage health hazards in the workplace upon the return to work.

The relationship between a clean workplace and employee satisfaction

The transition back to work should be as smooth, straightforward and stress-free as possible. Following a year of unprecedented twists and turns, the return to work is the perfect opportunity to restore a degree of normality to the lives of your employees. If your employees feel enthusiastic about starting back in the office, the entire business will benefit.

Employee satisfaction is the key to success. If your employees have been informed that the correct health and safety measures have been implemented prior to their return, they will feel far more comfortable with the whole situation and look forward to reinstating their former routine. With this will come an eagerness to work hard and reach their targets, establishing a sense of consistency relative to output. Your employees’ relentless work ethic will soon pay off, improving the overall efficiency of the business, leading to higher profits.

The impact of employee satisfaction on efficiency - If your staff feel happy and valued in the workplace, they'll work hard - Thier hard work will soon pay off and they'll hit their targets - Consistently hitting their targets is a sign of high efficiency - As your efficiency increases, your profits will begin to rise


If, however, the needs and wants of your employees are not considered, a very different scenario will pan out. Ultimately, if your staff feel that their basic requirements have been neglected, they may feel hesitant about returning to work. This will result in one of two outcomes. Your employees will either refuse to come in, triggering a decrease in your labour force, or, if forced to come in, will feel discouraged and therefore work slower. Regardless, both outcomes will lead to the same conclusion: a fall in productivity and output. If this attitude continues for long periods of time, your profits are sure to drop.

How to ensure a safe workplace

There are a number of steps you can take to create a clean, sanitary environment for your workforce. The first involves the implementation of hygiene stations. The most effective way to encourage regular hand-washing in the workplace is by placing sanitisation stations around your office, such as by the main entrance to the building.

We’d also recommend providing your staff with their own pocket-size bottles of anti-bacterial hand gel to keep with them at all times. If you think your employees may require a bit of extra encouragement, consider personalising the hand gel bottles with either their nicknames or your company logo. Above all, hygiene stations will prompt your employees to maintain a certain level of personal hygiene.

You should also regularly take out the rubbish and stock up on other cleaning products, such as cloths, detergents, air fresheners and vacuum cleaners, to eliminate germs where possible. Though you may be able to reduce the number of germs building up in your workplace, to ensure ultimate safety, you should hire a professional company to complete a regular clean every week and conduct a full coronavirus decontamination once a month.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we offer a comprehensive coronavirus decontamination service suitable for all types of business customers which includes a 28-day guarantee. Bacteria and viruses can remain active on surfaces for up to a week, during which time others may unknowingly touch the contaminated objects. Due to their invisible, odourless state, the build-up of bacteria and viruses can go undetected for weeks. Only a professional cleaning company, with access to specialist technology, will be able to fully eradicate all traces of contaminated particles from your workplace.
