Several businesses, that have returned to work with full capacity, have adopted changes in floor plans, employee hygiene SOPs, inventory management for safety supplies including masks and sanitizers, among others. Similarly, these businesses have also prioritized new and improved workplace cleaning and disinfecting protocols, mostly through professional service providers to implement practices that mitigate viral exposure and safeguard employee health. However, as the process of re-opening offices continues to accelerate, not all employers are immediately resuming normal, full-time operations. Many businesses have opted for a hybrid working model that allows a flexible arrangement for employees to work onsite on some days and remotely on the remaining days of the month.
Similar to a fulltime return-to-work approach, hybrid work models also require special attention to heightened and frequent cleaning and disinfecting practices. Despite reduced capacity at workplace, hybrid work arrangement must be accompanied with SOPs for employees to maintain social distancing and adhere to mask laws, while employers should ensure adequate workplace cleaning and disinfection at all times. As a result, these work models can benefit from partnering with a professional janitorial service provider that can deliver custom cleaning programs to meet the schedule of the hybrid workforce.
Companies that are on-board with this flexible approach require their janitorial partner to evaluate their facility to define the scope of work to best meet the cleaning and disinfecting requirements as well as understand the layout and operations of the business to ensure all high touch-points are cleaned and maintained accordingly to health and safety guidelines. Outsourcing the janitorial and facility maintenance functions to an efficient, professional partner can deliver the benefits of a practical, effective, economical, and convenient cleaning program. At the same time, experiene3ced service providers also build on-ground teams for their customers that have the required knowledge, skills, training, and competence to deliver best practices to support their business efficiencies.
