How to Ensure Your Office Stays Clean and Well-Stocked During the Busy Holiday Season

If the holiday season has you stressed and it’s being reflected in your office’s supply stock, then it’s time to start makin’ a list and checkin’ it twice. No matter your position in an office, having a well-stocked office should be a given. It helps keep it clean, employees healthy and happy and business running smoothly. Luckily, the team at Berk International has created a list to help get yours started. Here are four ways you can ensure your office stays clean, well-stocked and keeps your employees happy–even during the chaos of the holiday season.

Maintain a Germ-Free Work Zone and Arm Employees with Cleaning Supplies

‘Tis the season for all sorts of germs–  seasonal flus, colds, stomach flus… but maintaining a clean workspace can help decrease the chances of falling ill. To combat germs in the office, stock employee’s desks with a sanitizing solution and wipes so they can wipe down workspaces regularly. Electronics can also be a host for germs, so employees should be wiping down their computer screen, mouse and keyboard, office phone and cell phone everyday. For this task, just be sure to supply employees with a cleaning product that’s safe to use on electronic devices.

Don’t Let Low Toilet Paper Inventory Become a Pain in the You-Know-What

The holiday season is stressful enough as it is, and running out of toilet paper at work shouldn’t be something your employees should have to deal with. Avoid this business-foul by always keeping bathrooms well-stocked. Want to worry about this task as little as possible? Rather than stocking bathrooms with junior-sized rolls, opt for jumbo-sized rolls instead!

A Well-Stocked Kitchen Makes for Happy Employees

People look forward to their food and drink breaks throughout the day, so it’s important to make sure it meets your office’s and employees’ needs. Avoid angry (and hangry) employees by making sure the office kitchen is always stocked with plastic cutlery, napkins, a full water cooler and paper towels.

Don’t Let Dispensers Mimic the Mayhem of the Holiday Season

If you’ve ever had a toilet paper dispenser that’s hard to turn (and requires a lot of time and hard work to get just one little square of toilet paper), then you know how important it is to have functioning dispensers. Of course, dispensers in offices take a lot of wear and tear, but if they’re cracked, not installed correctly or simply don’t work, it’s time to update them. So finish 2018, and start 2019, fresh by installing new dispensers.

The holiday season is a busy time: deadlines are approaching, holiday parties need to be planned, gifts have to be purchased, so making sure your office is well-stocked may not always be an easy thing to manage. Fortunately, Berk International makes it easy by consistently fulfilling their customers’ orders accurately and on time.
