People notice. While they may not say anything, they notice. People who notice poor repair, litter, improper storage places say things – to friends, to health officials, and to colleagues. All of which means you may lose business.
Dedicate an hour a week to stay on top of minor repairs. Daily, or even hourly, clean-up is required in many places of work. And schedule monthly or quarterly repair and clean-up days as needed. Hire vendors to do work in a timely manner. And, enlist employees in the keep-our-place-clean campaign. Pride in the place we work is as important as pride for the work we do.
