The benefits of having a clean office space are astronomical for business owners, employers, and employees' productiveness. Every good employer spends a great deal of time searching for ways to keep their employees happy, motivated, and productive so that their business can see positive results in return. The interesting thing is that studies have proven that having a clean office space is truly a vital factor in boosting employee morale and a motivating work environment.
Due to the influx of individuals working in an office environment, it is no secret that an office harbors many germs. A study that was conducted at the University of Arizona found that computer keyboards have roughly three to four times more germs than a toilet seat. A typical work desk can harbor up to 10 million bacteria.
However, germs and bacteria do not end at just a work desk or computer keyboard. Everything found in an office building is riddled with these harmful microorganisms, including doorknobs, elevator buttons, door handles, faucets, and anything you can touch. When you think about it, we spend a lot of time touching these objects repeatedly as we use the restroom, have lunch at our desks, or take phone calls while in the office. All of these practices that seem so normal to us can harm us in the long run, especially if the environment is not sanitary. Having an office with poor hygiene practices comes with risks of employees falling ill, potentially hindering the productiveness of employees.
