With the challenges of the current economic climate, many business owners are looking to cut costs wherever they can. It can be a temptation to attempt to manage all the issues of your business premises including cleaning or maintenance but this is generally counterproductive. Even in a down economy it can be extremely beneficial to outsource janitorial and office cleaning tasks for a number of reasons.
The Cost of Your Time:
It may be possible for you or someone on your staff to complete the office cleaning, including keeping the bathrooms spotlessly clean, taking out the garbage, cleaning windows and organizing the break room or public areas. However, you should actually assess the cost of your time and what you could achieve if you were not spending time on these tasks. Cleaning is necessary but it does not generate any profit for your business, you do.
You and your staff are specialists in your field and aim to be the most efficient and best in your industry. Performing office cleaning and janitorial services for business owners is remarkably inefficient. You are likely to spend more time completing the cleaning than a specialist service would, as they are specialists in the cleaning and janitorial field. This can mean that outsourcing the task will have it done quicker and more efficiently than if you were to do it yourself.
Employ a Specialist Service for a Specialist Task:
Outsourcing means using your business strengths to your advantage and delegating tasks to specialists to complete those tasks efficiently and well. This will allow you to spend your time developing your services or products and building client relationships and sales.
You or your staff may believe that you understand the scope of office cleaning tasks but janitorial companies are specialists in this area with access to the correct cleaning products and are used to working an efficient cleaning routine. This will ensure that your business premises are well cared for and look professional at all times. You can be sure of the quality of your cleaning services, as if they fail to meet your standards you can outsource to another company.
Outsourcing to a specialist service can seem like spending unnecessary money but if your business is currently running efficiently, the chances are you don’t have spare staff to handle cleaning tasks. This could then leave you in the remarkably silly position of hiring new members of staff just to complete your office cleaning. This is completely inefficient and you will be putting yourself under undue pressure to recruit and hire staff that are skilled in both your industry and janitorial tasks. This is a huge ask and you will find yourself spending more money without actually improving your business.
Specialist office cleaning or janitorial service providers allow you to pay just the fees for office cleaning. You don’t need to worry about paying a benefits package or vacation and illness pay. You don’t even need to worry about recruitment as the service will hire their own staff and ensure they are fully trained. This will allow you to enjoy having access to a professional service without committing your company resources into recruitment and human resources issues.
A proper office cleaning and janitorial service allows you to invest the money you would have spent recruiting a team of in-house cleaners towards achieving your core business goals and objectives. You can concentrate on building your business, safe in the knowledge that your premises are being well cared for.
