Three Changes to Do in the Workplace this 2018

a busy workplaceThere's no better time to roll out changes in the workplace than as when the new year sets in. This is in line with people starting over a new leaf. If you've noticed some weaknesses in business operation and productivity problems last year, this is the time to address them. 

Here are some changes you should do soon: 

Enforce CLAYGO

You know to call ProKleen for commercial cleaning in your Salt Lake City office, but what about the pieces of trash that each employee contributes to the office throughout the day? It's time to gather everyone and talk to them about the importance of cleaning after themselves. While your cleaning company can clean the windows and wash the carpets, they won't be around to wash the dishes every time someone leaves them in the pantry sink. Letting dirty dishes pile up invites pests into the office.

Offer Flexible Schedules 

You probably have a younger workforce, as the majority of them are millennials. They have different expectations than the generations before them, one of which being that the quality of the job done weighs more than the number of hours spent in the office. Even if you want them to complete a full day's shift, you can allow them to start work at an earlier or later time—whichever schedule will make them more productive.

Update the Workplace Design 

A facelift might be necessary if your office has peeling paint and everyone feels burnt out just by looking at the same four walls. A fresh environment kicks up office productivity. While you're at it, get your employees involved in the redesign, as they will be the ones spending time around the renovated space. Don't replace something they hate with something they will hate even more. 

Every once in a while, you need to improve the office environment for it to be a space conducive to work. Make positive changes a part of your yearly agenda.
