Is it time to go back to the office? More and more U.S. workers are thinking about that question and wondering why, after so many have adapted so well to working from home, they should go back to the “old way” of daily commutes and lengthy meetings. That doesn’t mean they’re not willing to return to work at all: 52% would prefer a hybrid work system moving forward, and many companies are now developing their own hybrid work programs.
Keeping your workplace clean is your business’s version of wearing a suit. It presents your business in its best light and makes potential clients and vendors more likely to trust you. It also keeps employees more productive and generally raises your business’s esteem. As your business expands, you may find that hiring outside help for cleaning may be the best solution for keeping your workplace presentable.
As more and more businesses around the country move to reopen their doors, facility managers can’t afford to sit on their hands. While many of the challenges of facility management are the same as ever, the pandemic has either sharpened its importance or introduced other challenges that weren’t there before. The CDC workplace guidelines for reopening are an invaluable source of information to help you get the lights back on and keep safe and healthy employees in record time. Keep these things in mind as you move closer to reopening:
If you're a business affected by the pandemic, you're likely planning your return to work after COVID.
As the number of people visiting and using your workspace increases, it's up to management to keep businesses safe. If you are transitioning to a new model of work, you may need to consider Hybrid Workplace Cleaning. While this includes all pre-2020 measures, like watching for hazards that cause possible injuries, it must also factor in a COVID-19 plan.
Now that the Covid-19 pandemic has calmed down, employees are preparing to return to work. Staying healthy at work is a concern for everyone, from employees to management. In fact, 71% of surveyed U.S. employees said they are concerned about health at work and do not feel completely safe in their workplace.
The pandemic does not seem to end as fast as we all anticipated. Therefore, businesses should find a reliable formula to continue their activities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Managers and employers continue to face challenges transitioning into the current state. Some of these challenges include changing work schedules, company policies, and maintaining a clean workstation.
It's no secret that the COVID-19 virus has changed the way we live, play, and, in many cases, work. Many companies sent employees home to work to help slow the spread, but with the release of the vaccines came a bit of normalcy — enough that employees are slowly but surely becoming reacquainted with working in person.
As we shift back into a physical space for work, businesses are re-evaluating what it means to provide a healthy, productive work area. How do you make your employees feel safe and focused by prioritizing workplace cleanliness?
Commercial cleaning contracts are essential for protecting your company and ensuring you receive top-notch professional cleaning services. If you don’t have a contract with your cleaning service, you could face an interruption in service or subpar services with little or no recourse.
Disinfection services are essential in providing healthier spaces and peace of mind as businesses reopen and facilities return to normal occupancy levels. The CDC provides guidelines geared at employers, owners, managers, and operations specialists to follow when creating reopening plans for their office buildings so that employees and clients stay safe. Disinfection services can be used for either general cleaning in an office building or critical environment cleaning in cleanrooms, pharmacies, compounding pharmacies, data centers, or robotic manufacturers.
