The Winter months can often see our workplaces feeling stuffy and smelly.
This is due to a number of reasons such as heating, windows being closed for long periods of time, and the smell of wet coats and umbrellas lingering throughout the office. However, it’s important to remember that your staff spend the majority of their lives in their workplace and extra measures should be taken to ensure employees are comfortable and happy while at work. An effective way to achieve this level of employee satisfaction is to always ensure that your workplace is kept smelling and feeling fresh.
Below are just some small yet effective tips you can adopt to give your employees a workplace where they feel happy and productive.
We get it, it’s cold and you don’t want to open any windows which is completely understandable. But when windows are closed for such a long period of time you can often find, particularly with smaller rooms, that certain stuffiness will appear in the air. This can easily be solved by simply opening your windows. It doesn’t have to be a lot or for long periods of time but maybe just a small crack every now and then to allow a little bit of fresh air in to improve circulation.
Empty the bins
This one seems obvious but you’d be surprised at the number of times we see workplaces with overflowing bins. Not only does it look untidy but it can start to produce a foul odour and no one wants that while they’re trying to work. Just be sure to regularly change all of the bins in your workplace.
Regular office cleaning is important, whether you do this inhouse or take up professional cleaning services it should always be a priority. An untidy workspace can often decrease productivity and increase in staff illnesses. However, in terms of keeping your office fresh, not cleaning regularly can often cause a build-up of dust causing the office to become stuffy which is definitely not good for your employee’s health. And don’t forget you can always turn to products for that little bit of extra freshness, air fresheners and oil diffusers can also go a long way on your journey to a fresh office.
