Simple Office Cleaning ‘Hack’ Improves Productivity And Increases Happiness
Calling something a “hack” is the trendy way to say something is remarkably effective and is easy to do but people may not appreciate its value.
Kelowna office cleaning isn’t really a trendy topic at parties or little known, but it is super effective and easy to do (if you hire Evergreen Building Maintenance, of course).
It’s Scientifically Proven!
Keeping A Clean And Organized Office Is Good For Your Company
A Clean Office Reduces Stress
A 2009 Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin consistently found that women had high levels of cortisol when their homes were untidy. (High cortisol levels indicate high stress.
It also found that when the same women had organized houses they were happier and felt more comfortable.
Office cleaning helps create an environment where people are happier and more comfortable.
Higher Stress Can Create A Depressed Mood In The Office
The same study found that women whose homes scored higher on the disorganized scale felt more stressed and were more likely to have a depressed mood throughout the day.
On the contrary, women with higher restorative home scores had reduced depressed mood scores throughout the day.
Frequent Office Cleaning Promotes Healthy Habits
The National Library Of Medicine found that when people are under less stress they are more likely to have a healthier body because they tend to be more active, eat more nutritious foods and get better sleep which builds their immune system.
Office Cleaning Can Spark More Creativity And In Improve Self Confidence
Pendragon Homes reports a lot of problems can be solved if people are willing to step outside the box and take an initiative. Creativity and self confidence at the workplace are more likely in an office where people feel comfortable.
Office Cleaning Can Increase Productivity
A more organized and clean house, office or other environment can lead to increased productivity, according to a Princeton study.
Your staff will tend to have less stress and be able to focus more on their tasks. They are likely to be more immune to distractions when there is less clutter and dirt. The study shows that with less distraction, your mind can process at a faster pace.
People Are More Likely To Accept Changes In A Clean Office Environment
The Hindawi Journal reports “the initial psychological well-being may also be relevant to adherence [to change]. It is very likely that poor psychological well-being might influence people’s ability to adhere to behavioral changes.
Organized And Clean Spaces Ensure Safety And Reduce The Risk Of Injury
Safety should always be a priority at the office. Keeping your staff and clients safe has a lot to do with the way you manage the cleanliness of the office environment.
If there are tools and equipment all over the floor and boxes sitting disorganized all over the office, people will be more prone to injury.
People often report tripping over wrongly placed furniture or equipment or getting injured by loose items falling on them from the top of disorganized shelves.
The benefits of a clean office include safety and reduced risk of injuries.
An IDC survey conducted in 2012, found that many workers in the IT field waste a lot of time looking for misplaced documents and reports. This wasted time cost the organizations a loss of around 21.3% in their total productivity.
A Clean Office Reduces Procrastination
Another research article titled “Procrastinators and Clutter: An Ecological View of Living with Excessive Stuff” published in 2017 mentioned that there was a co-relation between chronic procrastinators and their environment. The researchers concluded that “clutter in one’s living [and working] space, negative emotions, and impaired social ability all predicted high procrastination scores.”
