As a business owner or manager, you may be the kind of person that thinks of things in terms of numbers and makes decisions based on a cost-benefit analysis. That’s because, as the saying goes, “time is money.” How much time something will take versus how much it would cost to outsource sometimes isn’t as clear-cut as you would imagine. There are many factors that affect the decision of whether or not to hire a janitorial company for your office. The reality is that every workplace has basic maintenance needs regardless of the nature of your business, the size of your office or facility, or the amount of employees you have. Since time is money, here’s how to save money by hiring a janitorial company:
Save Time = Make More Money
The more a business grows, the larger the space it needs. More employees means more waste. At some point, you’ll cross the threshold of it being a logical business decision to take care of your janitorial needs in-house. Hiring a janitorial company will allow you and your employees to focus completely on work, and not on chores!
Clean & Healthy = Happy & Productive
Hiring a janitorial company will show your employees that you care about maintaining a clean workplace, which can increase employee satisfaction and productivity, and this means more revenue, which can offsets the cost of outsourced janitorial services. It will also reduce your employees’ exposure to potentially harmful bacteria and viruses, which reduces sick days and absenteeism.
Make a Good Impression on Customers
Cleanliness is generally taken for granted by customers and clients of any company or business. The opposite is often the direct cause for a loss of business. You may very well be able to perform all of your janitorial needs in-house, but a janitorial company will do it better. Hiring one will guarantee you don’t lose business because of a lack of cleanliness, which in a way, can be seen as saving money.
Protect Furniture, Equipment & Technology
The buildup of dust, dirt, and debris on workplace furniture, equipment, and (especially) technology can lead to excessive wear-and-tear, and even dysfunction. Hiring experienced professionals in the dynamics of workplace janitorial maintenance will ensure the protection of your workplace furniture and technology, potentially saving you tons of money from having to replace broken, damaged, or prematurely worn-down items.
Prevent Other Damage
Not hiring a janitorial company means you address your janitorial needs in-house. There’s a good chance that you’re not performing all the necessary tasks effectively. Janitorial companies provide a level of quality service that helps prevent structural damage in and around workplaces of all types. Skimping on your janitorial needs may lead to the disruption of business and expensive repairs later on.
Sometimes, saving money comes in the form of investing some of it in hiring a janitorial company for your business to generate more of it than otherwise possible, and also avoid larger future expenses!
