Improving cleaning quality and hygiene without compromising on operational efficiency has become even more critical for facility managers and facility service companies1. Research shows that 80% of the public expects public washrooms to provide a safe hygienic environment to a higher extent now than before COVID-192. In addition, hybrid working models and the increased emphasis on hygiene in shared spaces are making work even more complex for office facility managers. Especially since the cleaning and hygiene needs vary greatly, depending on how many employees are using the office at any given point.
To meet these challenges the Tork Office Hygiene Package offers products, services, tools and support that enable facility mangers to secure the office is ready for business. It now addresses current topics such as:
- how flexible offices and hybrid working models have created new hygiene challenges,
- how facility managers can support new hand hygiene behaviors and adapt surface cleaning in shared spaces,
- how data-driven cleaning can help provide consistently high cleaning quality and improve efficiency.
Part of the hygiene package is Tork Vision Cleaning – the world's leading facility management solution. Using real-time data from people counters and connected dispensers, Tork Vision Cleaning takes the guesswork out of cleaning operations and shows facility managers and cleaning teams alike when and where cleaning is needed the most.
“Data-driven cleaning plays a particularly important role in relation to the current challenges posed by hybrid working models. Our solution, Tork Vision Cleaning, can be used to see hot spots and determine the right cleaning frequency as well as making sure that dispensers are stocked up 99% of the time3. The built-in insights improve cleaning procedures while reporting tools show adherence to safety regulations and give transparency of a job well done. In fact, 100% of our existing Tork Vision Cleaning customers say the system has helped them improve hygiene in their facility4”, says Anna Königson Koopmans, Marketing Director Commercial for Essity’s professional hygiene business.
