It’s the time of year when we reflect on our personal and professional goals and it will come as no surprise that the majority of resolutions that people make have to do with improving business and bettering one’s health.
How you take care of your office space can greatly impact these two areas and today, more than ever, cleanliness and job satisfaction are the keys to finding and keeping valuable employees. These factors can also help you reach your 2022 business goals.
Over the past 12-plus months the marketplace has changed drastically and we have seen new cleaning trends emerge, strategies evolve, and employee and customer needs continue to shift. The new year is a time to reflect on what has worked and how to develop strategies to continue to improve.
Below, we have listed three resolutions that will set you and your team up for a healthier and more successful year:
1. Get Organized
When evaluating your office space, ask yourself: does the design of your office create an efficient workflow or does it promote chaos? Does your layout and general organization help or hurt your team’s productivity? The beginning of the new year is a perfect time to clear clutter and get creative and efficient with streamlined ways to make your space work for you. The new year is also a perfect time to introduce new policies or procedures to that will keep the office running smoothly throughout the year.
2. Go Green
It feels good to do good. Going green is a great way to remove harmful chemicals from your environment and reduce your company’s overall negative impact on the earth. This year, make a commitment to become a greener, cleaner business by taking a few easy steps.
Make it a priority to proactively look for opportunities to implement environmentally-friendly practices like recycling programs, reducing print usage by moving to digital workflow or encouraging ride-sharing.
Consider upgrading outdated equipment to newer models, as many newer machines require less energy and resources.
Switch cleaning supplies to earth-friendly, natural products or work with a company like Commercial Cleaning Corporation that does.
3. Consistency is Key
When it comes to change, we all start out with the best intentions in mind, but sticking to our resolutions, regardless of how beneficial they are to us, can be difficult, especially when you’re running a business.
Whether your routine needs just a small tweak or perhaps a major overhaul, this January, commit to a regular cleaning schedule that proactively takes care of maintenance and quickly addresses any issues or messes that may pop up.
If that sounds like a lot to take on right now, we get it. And we’re here to help you get started. Commercial Cleaning Corporation will meet with you to evaluate your building or workspace to create a customized solution that will meet your needs and preferences.
