Do You Know The Cost Of Not CleaningPosted on: November 1st 2020 • Posted in: General News
Regardless of COVID-19, it remains true that a clean office is a crucial part of ensuring a healthy and more productive working environment. It’s important not to neglect the nitty gritty stuff where the real germ mongers lie – in desktop IT. Hiring professionals to tackle the job may be an extra cost but understanding its value will save you in the long-run.
As one of the biggest investments a company makes, it makes financial sense to ensure that IT equipment is looked after. IT equipment that is looked after properly is likely to have a longer lifespan than technology which is left to gather dust and dirt which could damage its function. Replacing IT is expensive, disrupts your workforce and adds to the mountain of discarded IT equipment sent to landfill each year.
The real dirty truth is that the average keyboard can harbour up to 7,500 bacteria at any one time, spreading germs and illnesses around the office. A new report from workplace absence management specialists, FirstCare, shows that workplace absence is costing the UK economy a staggering £18bn in lost productivity. With 60% of illnesses passed on in the workplace through touching keyboards and telephones, keeping desktop technology as hygienic as possible should be a priority when it comes to reducing staff sick days – especially in these times of Covid where just one office outbreak could lead to complete shutdown whilst everybody has to self-isolate.
