PERSONAL HYGIENE IN THE WORKPLACE
Hygiene is considered to be a measure of people’s way of life.
When a person has good hygiene, they do more than just make themselves comfortable. They also make it much easier and more comfortable for other people to be around them.
When it comes to Your Tax Shop’s workplace, cleanliness and personal hygiene are of utmost importance too, as they are always included in our company’s norms and policies. After all, Your Tax Shop wouldn’t want their employees looking unkempt, right?
Your Tax Shop’s employees represent the company. This means that it is not enough to just dress professionally. Your Tax Shop’s employees need to exhibit other traits, as well – flawless hygiene included.
Every workplace needs to be hygienic not just for the sake of having a good reputation and making good impressions but also for the sake of health and safety of everyone — customers, visitors, and employees and Your Tax Shop recognises this.
One of the best ways to ensure excellent workplace hygiene is to implement hygiene policies that all parties need to follow. Below are the top reasons that Your Tax Shop needs to take workplace hygiene seriously:
- Your Tax Shop employees will be happier.
Your Tax Shop’s workplace environment can greatly influence their employees’ satisfaction at work. Happy and content workers are productive and are always inspired to do their jobs well.
When people are happy at their workplace, they don’t think about changing jobs. They stay loyal to the company where they are treated well and that reduces the employee turnover.
Your Tax Shop’s simple act of keeping the workplace clean is one way they can give their employees the kind of environment that will make them want to stay.
Below are simple tasks that when turned into a habit, will create a good level of comfort for everyone in the Your Tax Shop workplace:
- Cleaning the windows regularly to let the natural light in.
- Regularly emptying the rubbish bins.
- Cleaning the toilets on a regular basis.
- Scenting rooms with light air freshener in intervals.
- Ensuring weekly deep cleans of the office.
- Ensuring personal image and appearance is to the highest standard.
- Your Tax Shop will enjoy a better image.
Your Tax Shop employees are not the only ones that roam around the office. Clients old and new and suppliers pay a visit too. The last thing Your Tax Shop would want is for them to be turned off by a messy, unorganised, and dirty workplace.
As it is said, ‘the first impression is the last impression’ and poor workplace hygiene can create a very bad first impression for Your Tax Shop.
- Your Employees Will Be Healthier.
An unhygienic workplace increases cases of employee absenteeism, costing businesses such as Your Tax Shop a considerable amount of money. If you have substandard hygiene in the office, expect more and more employees taking sick days.
Your Tax Shop implements proper work hygiene to be able to stop harmful viruses and bacteria from spreading all over the office, ensuring a safe and healthy work environment, and reducing health risks for everyone.
- You Can Reduce Slips, Trips, and Falls.
Your Tax Shop’s workplace is cleaned on a regular basis, so there are very slim chances of accidents happening and their employees getting injured.
Looking from another angle, this also means that a filthy office increases chances of accidents such as slips, trips, and falls. The culprit behind these horrible and dangerous incidents? Dirty and slippery floors.
To prevent injuries, Your Tax Shop makes sure all their office floors are cleaned on a regular basis, they have proper mats placed in areas where slips, trips, and falls are most likely to happen.
A clean workplace is a safe and healthy workplace. And a healthy workplace helps grow a business and achieve its bottom line goals.
