No matter what company is in operation, they will always need staff or a third party company to take care of their premises so that it is a hygienic place for staff and the public to use. Although most people do not think about this aspect when they are starting up, they will find that it is a very important part of their daily routine before too long. For those who are looking for this kind of facility, look up ‘office cleaning’ or ‘janitorial services’ online to get an idea of which companies do the deal.
In any building there will also be small daily jobs which need to be done. Filling up soap dispensers or toilet roll holders, unlocking doors when the building opens, ensuring that the lights are turned on in readiness for the workers etc, all these jobs need to be done without anyone being aware of them. Imagine if doors were not unlocked ready for the morning rush or the evening exodus and one will see that this seemingly simple job is important for those who want to get on with their own work.
Offices also need an inordinate amount of dusting etc and this is normally done while the office staff members are out of the building of course. However, the problem with employing people direct to do this work is that they are usually extremely curious about what goes on in there. For example, some staffers will be interested to know what the boss earns and they may inadvertently find this out when they are emptying bins etc. This can lead to too much office gossip so it may be wiser to employ an outside company to take over duties like this.
It is important, therefore, when taking on an outside company that they realize that their workers may come across some information that is secret. To get around this problem, there is normally a non disclosure clause in the contract that is signed which means that if the third party staffers talk about what they have found, the company can and will be sued. It is also necessary that the company hired to do this work have all the necessary qualifications to treat surfaces and floors etc in the correct fashion so that no damage is done. Dusting and mopping may be simple, but those floors which can be damaged by the wrong chemicals could turn out to be quite costly to both parties if care is not taken.
Lastly, if people compare the cost of employing their own staff to that of hiring an outside company, they may think that the outside company looks a little too expensive. However, consider the organization needed to hire, train, supervise and pay these workers and the equation now takes on a different aspect. The payroll will also have to be expanded so do not forget to add the time taken up here too. All in all, hiring outside companies may not be so bad after all.
