Office cleanliness directly correlates with employee contentment, making it a priority for facility managers.

In a recent study by global hygiene and health company Tork, an Essity brand, 86% of surveyed office employees emphasized the importance of cleanliness in their work environment.

According to the report, this data underscores the role of hygiene in enhancing employee satisfaction and the need for facility leaders to adopt top-grade hygiene products and solutions.

Other key findings from the study revealed the importance of clean restrooms in workplace facilities.

  • 85% of employees believe that the state of workplace restrooms reflects the overall hygiene of the building.
  • 67% of employees are more prone to voice concerns about restroom conditions than any other part of the office.
  • Restroom complaints account for more than 45% of office building complaints.

Tork’s study also found that even though facility managers rank cleaning quality as their top concern, they allocate only around 18% of their time toward enhancing cleaning efficiency and standards.

The study indicates that by prioritizing efficient restroom maintenance, facility managers can greatly decrease grievances from office employees. The report suggested that streamlining restroom upkeep will allow for additional cleaning time in other spaces, leading to a tidier office environment, increased employee contentment, and enhanced job satisfaction.
