A Clean and Organized Workplace is Valued By Workers


An office workplace is more than just an employee’s desk. A recent study commissioned by Stratus Building Solutions found that if any part of the office is messy or unclean, it greatly deters workers from the workplace. It’s not surprising that when employees spend the majority of their day at their workplace, what matters most to them is cleanliness and organization.


The study found that:


  • 90% of the surveyed workers felt that their productivity was hindered by a disorganized or dirty desk.

  • Over a third of workers take into account the cleanliness of a workplace environment when deciding to accept a job offer.

  • 25% of workers have considered or have actually quit a job because of dirty work environments.

  • Some of the biggest issues workers had with the workplace were strong smells, dirty bathrooms, and coworkers who placed their cell phones on other people’s desks.

It’s clear that employees value the cleanliness of their workplace, which is especially important for building managers because it is linked to their productivity. For any business, the productivity and efficiency of their workers should be a priority, and steps should be taken to provide the cleanest, most sanitary environment to work in.


Hiring a professional cleaning company like New England Cleaning Services, Inc. leads to a consistently clean and positive work environment, which will guarantee a boost in worker productivity, satisfaction, and morale. In addition, we can accomplish high-quality cleans without using strong cleaning chemicals that workers also complained about in the survey. Modern cleaning technologies like Stabilized Aqueous Ozone streamlines the cleaning process by eliminating cleaning chemicals completely and instead relying on converted cold tap water to accomplish the cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing.
