Experts predict that the COVID-19 pandemic will have far-reaching implications on employee preferences and requirements.

Percentage of manufacturers that expect the pandemic to have a financial impact on their business1

Percentage of workers that are not satisfied with the physical safety conditions of their workplace, compared to only 26% in 20192

Percentage of employees that expect more resources from employers post-COVID to maintain proper hygiene at work3

As a result, it is more important than ever before to strive for a new level of cleanliness to keep employees safe while maximizing productivity.

As employee expectations of cleanliness and hygiene rise, facilities need to ensure that they have an established cleaning process that includes regularly cleaning high-touch areas. Cleaning frequently with industry-leading products will help facilities keep employees safe and minimize the spread of illness.
