facility management

Hiring a facility management company can have many benefits for your business, especially your team. From boosting your workforce’s productivity to having a positive impact on the planet, maintaining the health of your business, buildings, and employees is essential to success – and facilities management experts are here to help.

At 14forty, we know that workplace hygiene and cleanliness now play an increasingly important role in business operations. That’s why we recommend hiring a dedicated facility management company to help your teams unlock their full potential.

1. Keep your employees happy & healthy

It’s an employer’s duty to provide their workers with a clean, comfortable, and accommodating workplace, especially with 2020 research showing that 44% of office employees are concerned about their workplace’s cleaning standards. Hiring facility management companies is an effective way to create a workspace that meets your employees’ expectations, while cultivating a relaxed environment where everyone can focus. 

2. Boost your workforce’s morale & productivity

A clean and tidy office will achieve more than making your employees feel safe. Research has shown that regularly cleaned workspaces can make employees more productive and satisfied, whilst reducing sickness-related absences. With the support of a facility management company, you can transform your office into an environment where everyone works to the best of their ability – without worrying about their health.

3. Keep your workplace a safe space

During a time where cleaning in the workplace has never been so critical, keeping your teams safe and complying with guidance from the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England are essential. By working with a facility management company, such as 14forty, you can guarantee a hygienic work environment that adheres to the highest standards and most up-to-date guidance.

4. Reduce your impact on the planet

Working alongside facility management companies with a passion for sustainable, planet-friendly solutions can help to reduce your environmental impact without compromising on health and safety.

Our expert teams are proud to use chemical-free, clear, and odourless cleaning agents like Tersano, which are powerful yet harmless cleaning products designed to eliminate up to 99.99% of bacteria and viruses.

5. Save your business time & money

Trusted facility management companies employ expert cleaners who follow a structured process, enabling them to provide an efficient and thorough service without distracting employees hard at work. By keeping day-to-day operations running smoothly and reducing downtime-related costs, hiring a company to handle your facilities management is both time and cost-effective.
