Maintaining high levels of hygiene should be of paramount importance to retailers large and small. The cost of poor hygiene standards can be high, and the rewards for maintaining good levels of cleanliness equally great.
Poor hygiene in a retail environment can lead to various negative outcomes with people working and shopping in close proximity to each other. Most significantly, it can have an impact on the spread of viruses between staff members and customers.
But it can also have a knock on effect in other areas, including negative impact on the company’s reputation as both staff and customers are likely to recognise that cleanliness and hygiene is not being appropriately maintained.
On the other hand, taking time to maintain high levels of hygiene can help put staff members and customers at ease and help a shop thrive by creating a pleasant, presentable, and healthy place to work and shop.
Some of the highest risk areas in terms of the spread of bacteria and viruses in the retail space are:
Hygiene has never been so important and noticeable to members of the public as it is now.
This has created an opportunity for retailers who are going the extra mile to make give their customers an safe, enjoyable, memorable experience when shopping with them.
Maintaining high levels of hygiene is becoming an increasingly effective way to stand out from the crowd and attract more footfall which will lead to sales growth and revenue growth.
Utilising the appropriate hygiene services isn't simply a cost of doing business, it's an investment that can lead to a positive return over both the long and the short term.
