You know how much a clean home makes you feel better and a clean workspace is no different. Working in a clean and tidy environment leads to higher employee morale – and, this equates to increased productivity. We’ve outlined a few important points below as to why a clean workspace increases employee productivity.
Less clutter, less distractions
A Harvard study on students showed that in an uncluttered environment they were able to concentrate steadily for 7.5 minutes longer than those working in a messy environment. A clean office, means increased focus for longer, improving employee productivity for your business.
A stressed employee will not be working to their potential. A messy work environment will increase work stress by making employees feel overwhelmed and disorganised. A clean workspace means your employees can feel proud of the place they work, boosting their morale. A clean office space will also leave a lasting impression on your customers and projects a professional brand image.
Fewer sick days
A dirty work place is a health and safety issue. General dirt and toxic substances can have a negative effect on your employee’s health. In addition to this toxic load, did you know that viruses and bacteria can survive on surfaces for 24 hours or more? For example, an office keyboard can harbour up to 7,500 bacteria at one time. An unclean workspace will increase the risk of spreading illness among your employees. A regularly cleaned workspace means less transmission of disease, less absenteeism and therefore, increased employee productivity.
