There is a direct correlation between a clean work environment and keeping employees healthy and productive. Dr. Jeffery Campbell, chair of facilities management at BYU, conducted a survey on work environments that included over 1,400 people. One intriguing figure from the survey was that 88% of employees say productivity, concentration, and learning is hampered in "dingy" places. Below is a chart presented by the Worldwide Cleaning Association that is loaded with interesting statistics regarding the "Value of Clean". This chart demonstrates how the costs of cleaning actually add value and generate revenue for the company. Browse the remaining tabs and let us help you make your facility as clean as can be!
If there was one place where cleanliness and sanitation should be mandated, it is the restroom! Disturbingly, 1 in 3 people don't wash their hands after using the restroom. Dr. Charles Gerba, a microbiology professor at the University of Arizona, stated that the bacteria from enclosed areas, such as a restroom, can spread to 60% of frequently handled surfaces in 2 to 4 hours. Practically 100% of those surfaces are contaminated after just 8 hours. Part of our business is to provide the necessary cleaning supplies for a clean restroom while you do your business.

Setting a good example for the expectations of the company starts with how you treat and care for the company facilities. Studies show that a clean office contributes to a high staff morale. Conversely, an unclean office space negatively impacts the employee turnover and is a poor reflection of the company standards and quality of work. First impressions for potential customers are also key. The first thing they see when walking through your doors and the last thing they see when they leave is the lobby space. A clean, friendly, and presentable lobby space can have a bigger impact than you think!
Clutter is a harsh word in the warehouse and shipping aspects of a company. Clutter is not only a safety hazard but also reduces shipping efficiency. It can have a direct impact on the timeliness of picking and the delivery itself. Organization and usage of effective shipping supplies go a long way in maintaining a quality reputation in shipping. The quality of your products is a representation of your business. How well the product is wrapped, taped, and packaged goes a long way when arriving at that final destination.
A messy warehouse impacts the profitability of the site. An orderly warehouse generally has more accurate inventory levels.

We at Bortek take the organization and cleanliness of our warehouse seriously and we encourage you to do the same. A clean warehouse can also help with morale.
