Life as we know it now is but the coordinated action of several functions. We take most of it for granted and forget the way the process has evolved. The modern world is filled with several such functions which have been perfected over time and we are reaping the benefits of its perfection. But what if one of them stopped performing as it were. Imagine the way everything would go berserk at even the smallest thing getting disrupted. Take for example, your office cleaning team.
Apparently it seems that the office cleaning team isn’t that important at all. After dismissing your office cleaning team, for the first one or two days it will seem that you were wasting money for nothing. But soon you’ll discover how mistaken you are. Problems will start with small, barely noticeable things like crumpled papers that missed the basket, bits of food, paper cups on the pantry floor, accumulation of dust on furniture and such other things. Soon you will find out that the whole appearance of your office has become unpleasant to the extent that your employees are loathing the idea of coming to work and your clients avoiding doing business with you because of your work environment. Therefore, before long you will realize what a huge mistake you made by taking what seemed to be a trivial step in the process of cost curtailing.
The first idea that will strike you is to get everyone involved in the process of professing hygiene and though it is indeed a noble theory, it only looks good on paper. The primary reason being every employee you hire has a specific job description and special skills for that. And you have already fired those who specialized in cleaning. So no matter how much you try, the level of hygiene will never be the same. Moreover, people may not like to do things for which they did not sign up and are also not being paid for. That will lead to a drop in performance as it will adversely affect their mentality and therefore functionality. Bottom line, you will end up with an untidy office and less efficient employees.
This will also take a toll on your health standards. Low hygiene simply translates to more illness. People will fall ill more frequently and that will lead to more absentees. Also, people with low tolerance to allergen will have health hazards as increase in the ambient dust particles will trigger allergic reactions faster. An important lesson to remember, any employee developing any health issues due to office environment translates to money disappearing from the employer’s pocket. If they sue you the only option to end the litigation is writing out hefty cheques. A small cost curtail can lead to a fortune being spent.
In light of all this, I think it is advisable to not let go off your office cleaning team to save a few bucks. Cla Cleaning specialise in what they do and you need that specialisation to keep things going smoothly. Though it may not seem so but office cleaning is much more important than it apparently seems. So be wise and hire an efficient and experienced team to make the best use of your money.
