- Wellbeing -
Employee well-being should be at the forefront of company culture, it has evolved from a ‘nice to have’ into a core focus of businesses. The most sophisticated technology and workplaces in the world would be nothing without the people that work within them. Wellness is particularly close to the hearts of millennials who have a high commitment to health and wellbeing.
The average adult spends more time awake in work than at home. Providing a clean and sanitized office environment is a key component to a modern effective organisation. Cleanliness is of paramount importance to a company's brand persona and client perception. It also has a major role to play for employee health and wellbeing and can directly influence productivity through the prevention of absences from work.
What’s more, the modern desk is far more than just a work station, they are often used for impromptu meetings with co-workers and have also become makeshift dining tables for people to eat as they work. With so much activity centred around the desk, it’s no surprise that they, along with the equipment used on them, can easily attract germs and bacteria. Renowned American Microbiologist Dr Charles P. Gerba conducted a study into bacteria in the workplace and found that the average desk was 400 times dirtier than the average toilet seat! Amongst his other findings, the most notable stats were:
The average employee loses nine working days a year to sickness, some of which may be attributed to a lack of workplace hygiene
A typical office keyboard can carry up to 7,500 bacteria at any given time
Viruses such as the flu can linger on unclean surfaces such as work desks or electronic equipment for 24 hours
60% of absences from work illnesses are contracted from dirty equipment in the office such as e-coli, staph and bacteria
With 65% of office workers sharing phones and computers, and with a whopping 25,127 germs per square inch found on just a telephone
Wowex reinvent cleaning procedures to prevent the spread of germs which, in turn, helps to reduce work place infections, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity.
We focus on an effective cleaning and disinfecting of environmental surfaces including “high touch” or frequently touched surfaces (i.e., desks, countertops, faucet handles, doorknobs) significantly decreases the number of environmental pathogens including influenza and cold viruses on those surfaces or objects, which in turn reduces the risk of transmission and infection. Routine cleaning removes the soil and dirt that harbors the infectious agents, while disinfecting kills the remaining environmental pathogens.
Our cleaning procedures are adapted to the requirements of the Well certification using non-toxic, hypoallergenic cleaners helps to reduce bioloads, pests, environmental allergens and unpleasant odors without introducing chemicals that might adversely impact indoor air quality.
We incorporate the latest technology with the use of an electrostatic sprayer provides unsurpassed uniformity in the coverage of complex surfaces with an exceptional disinfectant transfer efficiency.
Use of high intensity ultraviolet light technology that destroys any bacteria or virus. The light penetrates the cell walls of the microorganisms and fuses their DNA, eliminating them immediately with a 99.9% success.
Our online inspection and monitoring technology platform allows recording all interventions to ensure compliance with SLA's
