Three BSC Business Tips For 2022
When it comes to COVID-19 and its impact on the professional cleaning industry, some might compare it to what Charles Dickens wrote more than a century ago:
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times ... it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of Hope, it was the winter of Despair."
For some in this branch of the cleaning industry, like many Jan / San manufacturers, business has been so good that their products were running out. However, for too many cleaning contractors, revenues plummeted and large numbers of cleaning workers were laid off when many facilities closed their doors.
A while ago, we believed that COVID was behind us, but we are not there yet. So now we must focus on ways to make 2022 as successful a year as possible for the cleaning industry.
Here are some suggestions:
Focus on what you do best
Due to the Coronavirus, some contractors ventured into different cleaning and sanitizing technologies without fully understanding them. This was because everyone was rushing to deal with the pandemic. You have to focus on what you do best and adopt the changes only after doing [a] thorough investigation.
Cost versus quality
Cleaning contractors are now in a different business world. Costs are no longer your customer's primary concern. Now his main concerns are effective cleaning and protecting the health and safety of building users. Professional cleaning was always underrated. Let's put an end to that. Quality cleaning may cost more, but help your customers realize the great value this has.
Invest in your people
The most important asset any organization has is its people. Especially now, with the current shortage of janitors, they must be paid more, but just as important, educate them more. Investing in education, training, flexible work hours (if possible) and other benefits will not only attract more workers, but will keep them on the payroll. "
