Protect Your Employees and Customers this Fall with a Facility Management Service

Jim Buik - Friday, August 29, 2014

With the cool breezes blowing signaling the impending arrival of autumn, it’s hard not to also think about flu season as well. The unavoidable “flu shots here” and ever-growing Ebola outbreak cause you to think about how to better protect yourself and others around you. Obviously, prevention is the goal and one way the Chicago Uniform Company approves of is by outsourcing facilities management services.

We are aware that bathrooms are germ-filled and can be the starting point of forwarding contaminants to other surfaces and personal belongings. But, that can be significantly reduced if the proper resources are available. Many companies make the mistake of internally managing facility services by mistakenly thinking it will reduce overall cost. What ends up happening is a poorly managed service and increased costs.

Advantages of Facilities Management Services for Your Business

Outsourcing facilities management services can bring strategic advantages to your business:

  • First and foremost, outsourcing restroom cleaning services allows you to focus on your core business. Doing what you do best; attracting new clients, research and development, training employees and other strategies for growing your business. Hire a company that is an industry expert and has the necessary equipment, resources, manpower and access to the best products. This also means your company does not need to invest in equipment and resources.
  • If you do not need to invest, it will lead to cost savings. Building and land maintenance are the second largest expenditure of any business. By implementing a facility management service you can save millions annually all the while keeping your building systems and equipment up to date, running efficiently, stocked and safe.
  • A safer environment for your employees and customers. If there is adequate soap, sanitizers and paper towels, your employees will get sick less often, reducing health-care and insurance costs too. Employees are more productive in a safe, comfortable environment, which in turn will affect the kind of service provided to customers.
  • Customer satisfaction is something all businesses strive for, the uniform company included, and we know from a previous study that customers will revisit a facility if it is well-maintained and the company takes pride in its appearance.

A place that is clean, orderly, and properly stocked shows that the company is prepared, pays attention to detail and will go the extra mile for their employees and customers. Who doesn’t want to be partners with someone like that!
