The removal of Covid restrictions this summer carried with it the promise of a return to normal. No more masks, no more distancing and a return to the office to reconnect with colleagues.
For facilities managers, the work has only just begun with many playing a key role as organisations return to a semblance of pre-pandemic routine.
A recent study, by leading hygiene services provider Citron Hygiene, found that 70 per cent of facilities managers say their role is more important than ever before as they look to keep the workforce safe in the months ahead.
Keeping healthy and well-maintained premises is a complex and ever-changing process, which requires a high degree of organisation and operational efficiency. And, of course, the larger the size and number of premises, the greater the level of management and co-ordination that is required.
The visibility of hygiene measures, from the front door to the washroom, have now become expected by all staff and visitors. To keep your washroom users happy, supplies need to be always stocked and well-maintained. Having robust automatised technology and products in place, including sanitising sprays and air purifiers, will result in a more efficient and effective cleaning regime, saving staff precious time in the day. This is hygiene and cleaning going hand-in-hand.
As workplaces reopen, FM costs are likely to remain high as the responsibility to maintain healthy spaces continues to remain a top priority. Having a supportive hygiene services provider can help to alleviate the pressures facilities managers currently face, while improving quality through access to innovative solutions.
According to Citron’s research, more than half (53%) of facilities managers who currently work with an outsourced provider claimed they are valuable source of support, while two-fifths (40%) reported they represent good value for money.
A supportive hygiene services provider can bring peace of mind for everyone in your business – right up to board level.
