A clean and tidy work environment boosts productivity and morale, so keep on top of the mess in your office should be a priority. With desks providing the perfect host for bacteria to flourish, maintaining a strict cleaning schedule is essential to ensuring employees remain positive and healthy in the workplace.


You have to know the value of cleaning your stations regularly, and below are the key benefits of keeping your office and your desk clean and tidy.


HEALTH
Due to many workers eating in front of their computers, and purely the amount of time office workers spend at their desks, the average office desk can host more bacteria than a public toilet seat. Cleaning desks by wiping them down and ensuring frequently used items such as the keyboard and mouse – where bacteria could be rife are sanitized regularly is essential to avoid the spread of germs and illness to you and other employees around the building.


INCREASED EFFICIENCY
A cluttered workspace has been proven to negatively impact employee productivity, creating a distracting environment to work in – especially when your desk is so cluttered you can’t find things when you need them. Keeping an orderly, tidy desk will ensure that you can access documents when you need them, saving you valuable time throughout the day to focus on your work.


REDUCE STRESS
Similarly, improving your desk hygiene can significantly reduce stress levels throughout the workplace. A cluttered desk can make focusing on projects confusing and distracting, raising your level of stress throughout the day. Taking a quick 5 minutes at the end of the day to restore order and create space for the cleaners to sanitize your desk can dramatically improve your working life and attitude.


CREATE A BETTER FIRST IMPRESSION
If your office receives visits from clients, creating a great first impression is essential for building positive relationships. Cluttered, untidy desks can damage the look and feel of the workplace, leaving clients with the idea that you could be disorganized. Enforcing a clean desk policy is an excellent way to ensuring guests to your building will always have an excellent first impression of the company and its employees.
