Every company wants to keep its best employees, and commercial plumbing services can play a role in making that happen. Having a plumber on call to clear clogged drains, repair leaks, and make sure that everything is working the way it is meant to work is a bigger incentive for employees to stay with the company than you may think, as we will illustrate with these common plumbing concerns.
Sinks, drains, and fixtures that leak can be demoralizing for your employees. Enlisting commercial plumbing services will keep leaks from becoming a problem, and studies have shown simple plumbing maintenance can reduce employee absenteeism and promote higher retention. Plumbing maintenance is a small price for retaining key employees that your business relies on.
Drains that are always backing up or not flowing at all affect employee morale and may even have serious health consequences. Commercial plumbing services will keep your drains working properly and are available for emergency assessment and repair in the event that something goes wrong or a toilet becomes clogged beyond what an ordinary plunger can alleviate. It may come as a surprise, but the condition and functionality of the plumbing are among the top 5 employee complaints in office environments.
A sink valve that turns instead of turning on is annoying in the best of circumstances, but it can be fixed quickly by commercial plumbers. The same is true of loose and wobbly toilets, safety showers, and eye wash stations. Keeping all of your plumbing fixtures functioning as they were designed to work shows your employees that you care about their well-being, and that goes a long way towards attracting good workers and keeping exceptional recruits.
Distracting Plumbing Noises
At some point in our lives, we have all been in a situation where a leaking faucet became extremely distracting. In an office environment, small things like dripping faucets or pipes rattling in the walls can have serious impacts such as incorrect work performance, reduced employee productivity, and even employees who can’t accept the distractions any longer and go in search of new and less distracting employment.
Whether you prefer to call a commercial plumber when you need it or take the more efficient route of having a commercial plumbing maintenance contract, it pays to make plumbing an important part of the office budget. Employees will be more productive, and you will find it easier to hold on to employees that have proven their worth time and time again.
