A clean, tidy and hygienic office has a positive impact on employee productivity in the following different ways.

  • Motivation – being able to find all your work documents efficiently and working in pleasant surroundings make you much more motivated to do your work. When employees are more motivated they tend to also be more productive in their tasks.

  • Distractions – having a cluttered and untidy working environment can mean that there are many more distractions in the office. Whether this is piles of paperwork that need to be filed or dirty cups left on the side, it all has an impact on lowering the productivity levels of staff members.
  • Morale – working for a business that takes pride in the working environment has a knock-on effect on the morale of staff. People like being in the office and are generally happier which means that they will be more motivated and also much more productive.
  • Sickness – the most obvious benefit is that a clean working environment means that your staff will hopefully pick up fewer illnesses which can have an impact on the productivity levels of your entire business.
