Your lobby is the welcome center for your business or organization. It is your first hello, bidding your customers, partners, potential new customers, colleagues, investors, and future employees to come in and be welcome. Is your lobby welcoming guests, making them feel comfortable and valued? Or is your lobby saying something else?
Regardless of what type of business you have, your lobby makes the first lasting impression and sets the tone for the interaction to follow. The lobby says a lot about you and your company, from how you do business to how attentive you are to the details, to the work ethic of you and your employees. Your lobby sets the tone for your business – positive or negative. It introduces your brand to those who enter. What does your lobby tell your visitors?
A Clean Lobby Makes a Positive First Impression
In order to answer the question above, you may need to walk out and enter your office, looking at it with fresh eyes. When you do, ask yourself, is your lobby saying your company is professional, well-organized, energetic, creative? Or is your lobby giving off a completely different impression because it dusty, dirty, and in disarray. Even if the back office in your business is relatively calm and well-organized, the lobby is likely a busy place with lots of foot traffic, which means it needs constant attention. In most cases, it is more than your office employees can handle, and wouldn’t it be better if they were focused on your business.
Because a clean lobby makes the all important first impression, your best use of time and money would be calling on a professional cleaning service to get the job done correctly and ensure every first impression your lobby makes is a positive one. The goal of a professional cleaning crew is to keep your office space, lobby included, as clean as it should be, so your company always makes a great impression.
Now you might be thinking, wouldn’t hiring a janitor be a better utilization of time and money? Every situation is different, but in most cases, hiring a full-time janitor is going to cost considerably more than hiring a professional cleaning team.
