The concept of a Hybrid Workplace is soaring in popularity thanks to its flexibility, convenience, and health and safety benefits. The 2020 Remote Employee Experience Index, an international survey conducted with over 9,000 skilled office workers, found that a staggering 63% of employees prefer a hybrid workplace.

If there is one thing we learned since Spring 2020, it's that cleaning needs to be an integral part of every workspace’s schedule. This is as true for your data center as it is for anywhere else.
Cleanroom cleaning is something that must be done frequently.

If you're in one of these positions, you likely know the busyness well; by the time you list everything on your to-do list, you feel as if there isn't any room left in your brain for anything else.
Across the United States, restrictions around being indoors with others are beginning to ease. This is allowing offices and other workplace spaces to reopen.
