Cleanliness is next to godliness, and it’s your job as a business owner to understand why. The state of your office can make or break an important sale. A clean business is the difference between a client that sticks around and a client that runs for the hills within seconds of opening your door.
Picture this: you want to buy some groceries, but when you walk into the store, the floor is sticky and there’s something nasty on the door handle. You don’t want to buy anything from that store! Your customers are the same way. If they walk into a dusty office with peeling paint on the walls and boot tracks on the floors, they won’t want to do business with you simply because the environment is, well, gross. A clean business is inviting and makes the customer want to stay a while. It can even improve the customer’s mood, which will make your business very happy.
Speaking of mood, when your office is unpleasant to be in, you probably feel as bad as it looks. If you’re unhappy at your job, you won’t be able to close that big sale. Clients like a businessman who’s happy and comfortable in his office, not one who clearly wants to get out of there as soon as possible.
When the office is dirty, your employees are probably calling in sick more often than not. Even if you disinfect shared spaces and eating utensils, you’re still not doing everything you can to reduce illness. All that dust in the air can cause employees to stay home with allergies, asthma, and sinus infections. If only a couple people show up to the office, they’re going to have to do the work of the whole team. That means fewer clients and fewer sales.
If all this wasn’t bad enough, it’s important to consider the psychological impact of a dirty workplace. If you neglect your office, prospective clients probably think you’ll neglect them too. Forget about new employees, by the way. They don’t want to work in a dirty environment either.
