A few years ago, Walmart had a slow year, so they turned to their employees to see how they could better serve them. The most common complaint in the survey was the removal of toilet seat covers from their bathrooms. Walmart brought back the cover and business improved immediately. Listening to your employee’s and taking action can be the quickest way to find the issues and improve performance.
Here are a few things that can up your bathroom game:
#1 New Toilet Seats
The aesthetics of your bathroom can have a massive impact on employee performance according to Work Design Magazine. How long has it been since you sat on a fresh toilet seat? Depending on the size of your business, hundreds of people are using the bathroom multiple times a day. Even if you are cleaning the seats regularly, they still can show signs of wear and switching them out can be a noticeable change that doesn’t require an entire construction team.
