Tork Web Tool Aids Office Cleaning

Tork Web Tool Aids Office Cleaning

Tork has launched a new web tool aimed at helping organisations to improve their business through better hygiene and cleaning.

The free tool from leading hygiene brand Tork looks at today’s office environment and considers how to tackle new cleaning challenges that arise from practices such as hot-desking, shared equipment and the increasing use of screens.

“The office as we know it is changing,” said Tork FM Sector Sales Manager Stuart Hands. “The office environment is increasingly being seen as a physical showroom to define and strengthen a company’s brand. This makes hygiene and cleanliness essential to the image of a business.

“Additionally, in a world where competition for the best and brightest is fiercer than ever, managers are realising that a sustainable, hygienic and likeable office environment is crucial in order to attract talent.”

He says hygiene is business-critical in every part of the office from the reception area to the washroom, conference rooms and kitchenette. But he adds that changing practices at work are producing new hygiene challenges.

“For example, break rooms are increasingly becoming areas where employees don’t just eat and socialise but where they also bring their computers and have ad

hoc meetings,” said Stuart. “This demands more flexible maintenance in order to ensure good hygiene. However, it is often unclear whether it is the cleaners or the staff who are responsible for keeping these areas clean. Our new web tool provides tips and advice for exactly this type of situation.”

The Tork web tool uses an interactive graphic of an office building and highlights the hygiene and cleaning challenge in each part of the facility. Recommendations are then given for meeting these challenges. The we tool also considers:

• Office trends: The upcoming trends for today’s office and how to clean more effectively in a modern connected building

• Practical insights: How to best place dispensers in an office building to improve hygiene and cleanliness based on people flow and research

• Tips and tricks: Cleaning checklists, tips and advice for common areas in offices to enhance hygiene and cleanliness

“Cleaning and hygiene challenges can increase in particular when transitioning to a new office environment, such as from cubicles to open landscapes,” said Stuart. “Our web tool helps customers to consider how cleaning is planned in different parts of their office and how to make the most of their office building.”

Tork, a brand of Essity, partners offices in more than 80 countries worldwide through the Tork Clean Care programme. Using its expertise in hygiene, functional design and sustainability, Tork takes a consultative approach to help companies create a healthy and attractive working environment and improve their businesses through better hygiene and cleaning.

Tork has a broad hygiene offer including paper, soap and dispensers for washrooms; wipers for kitchens and other hygiene critical areas, and napkins and sanitisers for high traffic areas. Tork also offers solutions such as Tork EasyCube™, a digital cleaning management tool with connected devices enabling real-time data on cleaning and refill needs to improve guest experience, efficiency and staff engagement.
