Housekeeping Cost – नहीं चाहते हुए भी इसे अनदेखा नहीं कर सकते


Hello friends,

I am your Buddy Mr. Connect…….!!

Corporate often feels that by doing away with the housekeeping cost, they can maintain their office well but they forget that housekeeping contributes up to a greater extent to keep their office clean, shining, hygienic & in workable condition thus it is difficult to run an office without housekeeping services. Although it is the IInd highest contributor of Operational expenditure & since its manpower based contract almost everywhere & directly linked to increase/decrease of minimum wages thus all the more important to keep a strict vigil on its consumption cost as it tends to go higher & higher in case the minimum wage increases. Aside from it, you may connect with us for Manpower Suppliers For Corporate Office.

  1. Benchmark your housekeeping cost with Industry data on the basis of the below parameters & gain true spending out of it;-
  • Office size, its Layout, geographical spread & structure-wise whether new or old

Advisories may consist of:- Tips, usage of resources, grooming, training, resource absenteeism, Relievers, compliance matters, etc to remove non-value added steps from the entire chain of process.

  1. Opt R&R model (Reward & Recognition) to boost the morale of resources
  • Resource of the month considering all parameters
  • Star rating system. Different color stars can be put on collars basis good/bad performance
  • Internal up gradation in their grades such as – Housekeeper can be promoted to pantry boy & so on.
  • Good performer photos can be put on common notice boards & some certificate can be awarded to them
  1. Device internal customer feedback mechanism to exceed their satisfaction level & gain their trust
  • Performance efficiency checklist can be introduced
  • Person specific feedback to be worked upon & corrective action to be taken
  • Office Hygiene Audit can be initiated to measure the performance standards
  1. Optimum usage of resources deployed
  • Don’t let them deviate from their defined KRA’s

  • Get deep cleaning performed by In house housekeepers
  1. Benchmark your deployment strength as per Industry standards. This will not only help reducing down the no. of resources required for a particular job/area but also eliminate waste cost elements from your process.

The resources can be rationalized considering below parameters especially for corporate having multiple city presence with different office sizes.

  • Size & Office layout whether having single/multiple floor plate, carpet/super area, entry/exit from inside/outside & shifts etc

  1. Engagement activities by involving your internal staff. The office internal staff play a very vital role in this activity. They may be instructed to;
  • Do not Misuse the resources for their personal work. For Ex: Some may ask to get Lunch from their home, eatables from outside, bank/post office work, bringing their children from schools, etc. Since these activities usually get performed during office hours thus end up wasting the productive time of resources & also leads to incomplete tasks. When resources work gets hampered, other staff demands for additional resources.
  • Don’t Extend working hours of internal staff: The internal staff sitting late should not stop the resources for their convenience as it increases their Overtime cost
  • Don’t Avoid shift duty of resources unless it is required: In case the work demands late sitting then avoid late sitting of resource staff either or additional shift wise deployment of resources.
  • Self-service to get their Tea/Coffee & water from the pantry
  • Don’t mess in & around the washroom
  • Photocopy their documents
  • Don’t litter on the floor
  • Follow pantry & washroom usage etiquettes
