I think it’s fair to say, that 2020 caused the most disruption to our daily lives in peacetime. Whilst the pandemic is far from over, vaccines are being rolled out and we can begin the year full of hope; confident that the worst is behind us.
It’s impact won’t be forgotten, since COVID-19 has shifted consumer behaviour and expectations to such a degree, that they will last long into the future – certainly throughout 2021 at least. For example, end-users’ expectations of cleanliness and hygiene are higher than ever, consumers are practising hand hygiene much more frequently and thoroughly than before, and our industry is recognised for the important role it plays in society.
These are reasons to celebrate. After all, they lead to higher quality cleans and healthier spaces for us all to enjoy.
Due to this shift in attitudes and behaviour, I predict that this year, standards will become much tighter. It will therefore be critical to ensure that professional cleaning staff receive high quality and relevant training. This not only results in an excellent and hygienic cleaning service, but helps keep workers safe whilst they continue to work with COVID-19 in general circulation.
At a time when consumers are much more selective about where they spend their time and money – basing their decisions on hygiene levels – training can make all the difference. A well-trained employee will achieve a high quality clean every time, enhancing a business’ image and making it a more attractive place to visit.
A structured, practical, and methodical approach to learning helps employers to retain key staff and develop the skills and knowledge to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.
