Cleanliness during the day: benefits for all!
The health crisis has shown the essential nature of the cleaning professions. There was a before and after.
The importance of the work of cleaners is an observation that everyone makes today. As links in the chain and actors in safe and healthy environments, the visibility of cleaners has become reassuring and essential.
As a result, more and more services are now provided during the day and on a continuous basis, instead of at staggered times (early morning or late afternoon). Strongly committed to this approach, Onet looks back at the advantages of working during the day, summarizing the benefits for everyone in turn.
For our customers: fluidity and efficiency
Daytime working is not just a question of planning and managing schedules. It is also the possibility to make feedback on the service in real time. Regulation is made easier. Monitoring the activity of cleaners is simplified. The recognition of their work is direct and more important. Working during the day also encourages recruitment and the development of the agents’ skills. The reduction of absenteeism and turnover is also one of the many advantages for our customers. This evolution of work in this field also allows us to deploy a service logic with the development of other associated services.
For their users: exchanges, reactivity and continuity
The cleaning services provided during the day give way to an evolution of the service in real time. Adjustments can be made thanks to exchanges between cleaners and the occupants of the premises. This also leads to greater reactivity and the possibility of providing additional services. These are multiple benefits for our customers and therefore for the users in fine. Better visibility of the service provided is also reassuring for users.
For our cleaners: work enhancement and improved quality of life
The changeover to daytime work allows cleaning agents to work during traditional working hours, i.e. when customers are present, at “office” hours, continuously, compatible with family and social life. For example, this is compatible with public transport schedules: the use of the car can be reduced. The hours are also compatible with the opening of day care centers and schools.
From a social point of view: it is a real improvement in the quality of life of cleaners. It allows them to create links. The exchanges enrich their work environment, making their missions more rewarding, as Noura Zegar, Team Leader, Onet Propreté et Services – Agen, points out: “Before, we were alone, we didn’t see anyone. Now it’s a change. We see the staff, we are in contact with them. There’s a big difference. I prefer to be seen, rather than not seen.“
Working during the day is also a definite benefit in the public transportation sector: “A concrete example with the Greater Avignon public transportation system, which has implemented this practice.”
