Now is the time for New Year’s Resolutions. While most people make it a priority to eat healthier, exercise more or set personal goals for themselves, as a business owner you may want to consider some cleaning resolutions for your business. Let’s look at some things that you may want to consider in the new year for the health and benefit of your company both in the eyes of your employees and clients.
Stay Organized – One thing that small businesses always should stay on top of is the clutter in and around work stations. Create a system for filing this year that makes it easy and keeps counter and desk tops free of paper work. Possibly set up a schedule that makes filing and decluttering a priority.
Think about Employee and Client Health – With the rise of the flu and colds this winter season, many people feel like they are being inundated by germs at every turn. A properly cleaned and disinfected work space can mean the world to people working and visiting your office. Make it a resolutions to keep disinfectant wipes nearby for post client visits, and to maintain the health of workers. Keep antibacterial gel available in the bathrooms and common areas sending the message that you care about your clients and want to defend against the spread of germs and sickness.
Clean the Heating/Cooling Systems – While most companies may be happy with a dust free lobby and spotless bathrooms, maintaining a health heating and cooling system is a great resolution this year. According to the U.S. Department of Energy the average six-room house/office collects 40 pounds of dust, dirt, and allergens in its ventilation system each year. A regular cleaning of these systems can save you money in illnesses and equipment maintenance.
Let 2014 be the year your business reaches not only new heights in services and products but also in the cleanliness and healthiness for your business interior.
