When you aim to keep your company cleaner, don’t look at it as just “hiring a janitor” or a “cleaning service.” That’s how many businesses view it.
But since you’re a smart business, you always measure how everything impacts your bottom line. Every move should improve your business’s bottom line, either directly or indirectly.
And keeping your business clean does just that.
Here are business results you can expect when you do everything possible to make sure your business is as healthy as can be:
- Lower Employee Absences
This is the most obvious benefit. Lower employee absences mean greater productivity. And that clearly leads to more profits.
You also save money by not paying for more sick days.
- Fewer Less-than-Optimally Productive Days
A cold’s no big deal, right? True. However, it’s going to reduce your employee’s productivity. Maybe they work at 75% capacity for a week or two.
And the common cold spreads easily. So it’s not unreasonable to think this could impact several employees. It does put a dent in your productivity and profits.
- Lower Insurance Costs
Isn’t insurance a backbreaker, in terms of cost, for most companies? With healthier employees, you’ll use your insurance less. That leads to lower premiums over time.
And of course, you get to save that money and use it towards other purposes.
- Attract Better-Quality Employees
Average quality employees will take any old job. The good ones know what they can get, so they’re more selective. If they see your company places a priority on their personal health and well-being, you have a much more convincing case for them to work with you.
And that means greater productivity and profitability over the long term.
- Lower Turnover
Healthier, happier employees have lesser reason to leave your company and work elsewhere. That means you have less turnover. You don’t have to spend as much money on hiring or training.
- Greater Staff Morale
Happy employees produce more than unhappy ones every time. When employee’s faces light up at work, you get so much more out of them. And that, of course, that leads to greater long-term profitability.
- A Better Public Image for Your Company
Who do consumers or prospects want to buy from? They want to do business with companies they like most. If your company values employee health, that looks good for your publicly. And once again, it leads to more, and increasingly stable, long-term revenues.
A healthy workplace makes for a huge win-win-win for you, your employees, and your customers.
