Paying Your Employees to Clean Your Business.



Paying your employees to clean your business instead of contracting the work to a licensed janitorial service is a decisions that may not work for your benefit. As business owners we always want to find the easiest way of running our company without hurting our bottom line. However, sometimes “easy” is not the most effective way of doing business and those decisions become costly mistakes.

The following are some of the damaging effects of paying your employees to clean your office:

Liability and Insurance – Perhaps one of the most problematic issues of paying employees to clean your office is liability and insurance. Because of the nature of the work and equipment involved with janitorial services there is a high level of liability. Not being properly insured against these specific liabilities associated with cleaning staff can be very costly to a business owner if your employee is injured while cleaning your building.

Cost Effectiveness – Having your employees clean your office means you have to incur the expenses of all the necessary cleaning equipment and supplies. Additionally, most employees clean the office after hours or on weekends, meaning over time cost for the business owner. These costs can quickly climb and significantly affect your bottom line.

Experience and Quality of Service – Providing a professional cleaning to a professional business is not the same as house cleaning. Employees do not have the proper training to provide your business with the quality of service it deserves. Moreover, they are not trained to provide the proper time management to get the work done in the least amount of time. Lack of quality and time management can cause issues between management and employees, thus causing problems in the workplace and affect regular job performances.

The best way to avoid these possible pitfalls is to outsource your cleaning needs to a licensed, professional cleaning business like Phillips Janitorial Services.
