Trustworthy cleaning expertise is more important than ever.
As we enter 2021, we’re finally beginning to see signs of progress against the COVID-19 pandemic. With positive news coming in regarding vaccine availability and effective treatments, we have every reason to feel some sense of hope and relief. For businesses, it’s time to double down on taking action that keeps people safe. In the process, there’s also an opportunity to improve employee morale.
Creating an atmosphere of safety boosts employee satisfaction.
You’ve undoubtedly made some huge changes to your business model in the past year, taking into account both the needs of your customers and the constantly evolving public health requirements in your area. But you may not realize how much your cleaning protocols can affect the mental and emotional health of your workforce.
A clean environment supports employee mental health & wellness.
Managers who proactively seek ways to make the workplace as safe as possible and communicate the company’s health and safety protocols to their employees on a regular basis will improve the overall morale and productivity of their staff.
Think of it this way: having a clear, CDC-approved plan for preventing Covid-19 and other illnesses in the workplace allows your employees to focus on their work and taking care of customers, rather than worrying about whether their workplace is a risk to their health.
Here are some simple steps you can take to keep your facility safe and create a positive, productive environment for your team.
Communicate clearly and frequently.
Transparent communication between management and staff will go a long way to improve employee morale. When the company’s health and safety plan is unclear or unevenly enforced, the possibility for misinformation and confusion arises. Employees need to feel valued and any fears they may have need to be addressed. Reassuring your staff that their work spaces are clean and that you’re taking every precaution to protect their health is essential.
Explain any updates or changes to existing safety protocols. If there’s anything we learned last year, it’s that we have so much to learn. So when public health mandates and recommendations require changes in procedure for your company, make sure that you communicate with your team and explain why things have changed.
Another step you can take to improve employee morale is to ask for employee feedback on the company’s existing health and safety protocols and respond to any problems or areas of concern that your staff has noticed.
