Cleaning is a perennially undervalued profession, and is often taken for granted, but it is an extremely important part of every business. For some people, it is as if a magic wand is waved overnight and everything in the building is transformed, with no effort.
The importance of professional cleaners and high cleaning standards cannot be overstated, as they positively impact so many areas of a business and its stakeholders.
Supporting brands. First impression are extremely important to visitors and employees and the cleanliness of the exterior and interior of a building speaks volumes about its occupants and their values.
A great place to work. The changing nature of the workplace and digital communications has brought far greater employee choice in where and how we work. Employees expect that all areas will be maintained in top condition throughout the day, enabling them to maximise their productivity.
Health and Hygiene. The increase in hot-desking, together with shared collaborative areas, means that many people may use the same working area during a day. Thorough cleaning is required to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, and to minimise absenteeism due to illness. This is particularly important at the current time to help reduce the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading.
At NJC, we have always believed that our colleagues are ‘not just cleaners’, because through their dilligence, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile, they create an environment where our customers, together with their employees, tenants and visitors can excel. This is the NJC DNA.
We are always delighted when our customers recognise the hard work of our colleagues and our Unseen Heroes campaign will share their great comments. Keep an eye on our social media channels for #unseenheroes as we shine a spotlight on employees that have received gratitude and acknowledgement for the hard work that they do, and for demonstrating the NJC DNA.
