The Benefits of a Clean Workspace

At ServiceMaster Chesapeake, we understand that a clean business environment is a successful business environment. But how exactly does this translate? Although the benefits of cleanliness in the workplace are plentiful, we identified some key points that relate directly to success.

  • Health benefits: The obvious reason that cleanliness is valuable in a workplace is that bacteria, viruses and other germs can’t be spread as easily. That said, if employees are getting sick, that means they can’t work. This ultimately translates into less success within the business overall. For your employees to be germ-free, it all starts with your work environment.
  • Reduces Stress: Dr. Sherrie Bourg Carter, an award-winning psychologist and author, claims that there is a serious mental cost to clutter. She says that because of the excess stimuli that exist in cluttered places, an unclean environment can cause distraction, frustration and anxiety. It can also prevent creativity, productivity and the ability to solve problems. Indeed, the experts say that if there is one thing that is catastrophic to work productivity, it’s clutter. A clean workplace reduces stress and prompts employees to work better and more creatively.
  • First impressions come first: If somebody who is considering doing business with you comes into a cluttered office for a meeting, what will they think? Your work environment is the first thing that many of your customers see, so be sure to make a lasting impression.
  • Time saver: Navigating around boxes, trash or other clutter causes inefficiency. Your work environment should be a place where everybody can navigate easily, and work efficiently. It’s important to give your employees a clean space – help them work smarter, not harder.
