When the job of facility manager falls on your shoulders, you need to make sure that any cleaning that is required is taken care of both quickly and to the most pristine conditions. Outsourcing your janitorial cleaning is the epitome of the saying—work smarter not harder. There are several reasons why outsourcing is the best step for your business, and we will look at them here.
By outsourcing your janitorial needs, you will get what many in the business refer to as an “all-in-one” solution. Simply put, you will have a company that covers all your needs, while at the same time giving you the peace of mind to work on other areas of your company’s function.
For instance, one of the needs that will be covered is that of top-notch customer service. Through the years the role of a janitor is one that is associated with someone who is rarely seen and almost never known to be friendly. With a cleaning service at your disposal, you are assured that not only are your cleaning needs being met, but those who are cleaning for you strive to be friendly, polite, and helpful at any and all given interactions.
Another benefit of outsourcing your janitorial services is that of keeping down the cost of administrative related duties. When you hire your own cleaning staff, there is a pile of paperwork that needs to be taken care of both during the hiring, after the hiring, and to make sure that all the t’s are crossed and all the I’s dotted. Not to mention you will most probably need extra manpower to keep the books and paperwork organized. When you hire a cleaning service, you will not have to worry about any of the paperwork—that is their job.
Next is the most important part—the quality of the cleaning. If you delegate your current employees to handle your janitorial needs, they will not worry about the small things or the details. They will do what they feel they can get by with and leave it at that. However, a cleaning service will not only get them done right but to your satisfaction. Cleaning is what they do!
Finally, there is a reduction in operating costs and the money saved. Many people are unaware of how much money can be saved by outsourcing their janitorial services. Not only will you save on payroll and the cost of benefits, but you will only have one invoice at the end of the month to pay.
As you can see, there are many benefits to outsourcing your janitorial services—from a quality of service to actual savings on cost. It really is a case of working smarter, not harder.
