The end of plan B restrictions has, once again, seen the welcome return of workers to the office. However, with returning workers coming back with heightened expectations of their workspaces, businesses must ensure that their offices are up to scratch to prevent this being just another temporary return.
Speaking to Facilitate Magazine, James Carver, OSC’s Managing Director, highlights how an office’s cleaning team must be its first port of call in preparing for this return of workers. With Covid cases still remaining high and employees needing reassurance against the threat of the pandemic, an office’s cleaning team will be fundamental in protecting the health of workers and ensuring this return to the city is not temporary.
However, James emphasises the importance of investing in a knowledgeable cleaning team. With hybrid working now becoming the norm, post-pandemic cleaning in an office must contend with many challenges. For example, with workers now sharing desks and varying their schedules, it is not enough to rely on cleaning standards from before the pandemic. As a result, James highlights the importance of investing in a team which is well-versed in the complexities of post-pandemic cleaning which can help keep your office safe.
