Maintaining A Clean Shared Workspace Can Boost Productivity

The rise of shared workspaces has successfully encouraged collaboration among employees, but has also increased the chances of spreading infection. Keeping a clean work environment where workers are constantly sharing surfaces can not only prevent illness, but can also help productivity by reducing absenteeism.

In order to alleviate the spread of sickness (particularly during cold/flu season), property managers should set a schedule for certain cleaning tasks to be completed.

Increasing the frequency of cleaning and making sure ignored areas, such as refrigerators and microwaves, are properly maintained are a few easy ways to keep a tidy office.

Adding sanitizing kits throughout high-traffic areas of a workspace is another easy way to encourage cleanliness amongst employees, but do not place them in restrooms as hand sanitizers should not be replacement for hand washing.

When flu season comes around, it is good to boost the disinfection of office and kitchen surfaces to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Some technologies can also aid in keeping a clean workspace. For example, electrostatic spraying technology sprays disinfecting chemicals in hard-to-reach areas and will most likely grow in popularity over the next few years.
