Why is Cleanliness Important in the Workplace?

Why is Cleanliness Important in the Workplace?
Article

Maintaining cleanliness in the workplace not only creates a healthier environment for employees but also tends to help companies become more efficient and productive. Cluttered desks, leftover food and waste paper are just some of the most common items that contribute towards a messy workspace. It is suggested that a clean workplace increases the professionalism and motivation of the employees as well as promoting a healthy working environment (Haneef, 2014¹).

 

The following benefits will explain why cleanliness is important for workplaces:

 

  • Productivity: Provisions for a clean environment can increase the productivity of employees. Cleanliness can help drive motivation and boost the morale of employees thereby creating a feeling of belonging within their organisation (360 Services, 2014²). One of the easiest ways to encourage this is by placing free standing or wall mounted waste bins around the workplace to make it easy to dispose of waste.
  • Well-being: Providing a clean work environment helps in maintaining the well-being of employees. In a workplace where litter and waste is disposed of correctly and surfaces are cleaned regularly, employees take fewer days of sick leave, which results in improved overall productivity (Raesgo, 2014³).
  • Impression: A clean and tidy business space leaves a good impression on both its employees and its visitors. As such, it is a good idea to maintain hygiene and cleanliness not only indoors but also in any outdoor areas. Companies can purchase outdoor rubbish bins and ashtrays for outdoor and smoking areas.
  • Cost saving: By maintaining good levels of cleanliness in the workplace, companies can save on cleaning costs and refurbishments, which may become necessary if the premises are not properly maintained (Raesgo, 2014³).
