Acorn Environmental and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

Dear Customer

 

In light of the developments around Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that we have implemented measures ensuring our business can provide you with the best possible service during this time.

Our office-based staff have the ability to work from home if it is deemed necessary in order to provide our customers with continued support.

 

During this time, we will continue to fulfil our contractual obligations where practicable with the use of our usual mobile work force and part time staff, and where necessary our emergency response teams. We will do our best to continue to offer the additional services, such as bulk refuse removal and gutter clearances etc. However, there may be delays in some of these services should we need to step in and complete deep cleans for some of our more vulnerable and high-risk clients i.e. schools and sheltered accommodation sites.

 

Acorn’s staff have all had communication regarding what they can do to try to help reduce the spread of the infection not only in their homes but within our clients’ sites as well.

 

As our staff, and certainly our cleaning staff will be on your site(s) regularly, and to ensure that our staff are protected, we would ask that you inform us as soon as possible of the following:

 

·       Any confirmed cases at your site(s)

·       Anyone from your site(s) that is self-isolating

 

This information will allow us to make an informed decision as to how best to proceed on a site by site basis.

 

As a company our plan is to:

 

·       Identify employees at increased risk

·       Have the ability for our office staff to work from home with uninterrupted phone access should the need to isolate arise

·       Using remote access software to ensure we are able to continue to communicate with our clients

·       Follow the latest government guidelines to reduce the chances of infection and the spread of the virus

·       On-going communication with suppliers and clients allowing back-up plans to be implemented quickly

 

Acorn Environmental is committed to continue to provide the highest levels of service. Should we have any unexpected circumstances which may affect supply of goods and services, we will clearly communicate this to our customers via the normal communication channels.

 

If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us:

The typical employee spends 40 hours at work per week on average. This is a considerable amount of time spent at the office, and as such, it is paramount that employees have a clean and safe environment in which to work in. Having a clean, hygienic work place is the foundation of a well-run business as it will foster the kind of environment that is conducive to productivity and success. Here are five ways maintaining a tidy office boosts staff happiness.

Employees feel valued

Contracting the service of a professional cleaning company lets your employees know that you value them and their well-being. If employees are forced to work in unsanitary conditions, they will undoubtedly feel as though their need for safety and cleanliness has been neglected or worse disregarded. If they sense that their boss does not care about their well-being it can lower staff morale and engender the belief that they too can behave with disregard to their duties.

Less distractions

When employees have to work in untidy, cluttered work environments, they are bound to become distracted in a number of ways. Studies have shown that untidiness such as foul scents, severely diminishes concentration. A cluttered office means that workers will have to spend time looking for work material which will lead to frustration. Frustrated employees are more likely to get into arguments with other employees, especially if their tolerance for untidiness is different from theirs. If employees are spending the time to deal with these unnecessary issues, it means they are using less time to do what they are paid to do.

Less time cleaning

Hiring a professional cleaning service to take care of your office sanitation will result in employees using less of their own time cleaning! Not only does making employees carry out cleaning duties at work diminish comradely most importantly it diminishes productivity. To make sure your staff is happy, outsourcing expert cleaners to take care of office cleaning should be on your top priority list. Expecting your workers to take up this responsibility may be viewed as disrespectful and in some eyes, unprofessional.

Increased motivation

When workers become used to working in unsanitary environments, just the thought of going to work can demotivate them- not to mention when they get there! Nobody likes the site or smell of an un-kept place that’s dusty, dirty and filled with unidentifiable odours. On the other hand, going to a clean workplace is a welcoming sign that management has played their role in creating the ideal environment for their workers to flourish. This will of course, motivate employees by putting them in a productive frame of mind.

Healthy workplace

The first and most important benefit of maintaining a clean work environment is having healthy employees. Shared office spaces are a playground for diseases, so too are employee’s personal desks and computers. Contracting a competent cleaning services to maintain your offices will lessen the likelihood of employees getting sick on the job and lessen the likelihood of business owners having to find thousands of dollars to spend in damage control. Additional, a healthy staff means a productive staff. Unproductive costs.

Hiring a professional cleaning company may seem like a costly undertaking at first, however savvy business owners will gravitate towards the benefits. These important benefits will save them the time and money they would have eventually spent dealing with the effects of an unsanitary workplace.
