3 Things to Consider When Hiring a Facility Services Company
Whether a property is large or small, maintenance is crucial in making sure operations run smoothly. The condition of your property impacts workers, customers, and prospective clients that come through.
With this in mind, many choose to hire a facility services company that can help keep up a business's image and culture. However, this decision is not a one-size-fits-all. To help you out, we've put together a few things to consider when hiring a facility services company.
1. Quality of Workers
Although the company may be reputable, it's essential to consider what kind of workers they bring to the table. You want a company that trains its employees to be ready for anything. Workers that can work efficiently and safely are invaluable. Make sure that the staff they hire are thoroughly trained and given background checks. This ensures employees are more than qualified to take on their roles, whether that be a cleaning crew, security, or front desk concierge.
2. Use of Technology
In the past decade, technology has changed the way we look and interact with the world. With that said, you want a facility services company that uses technology to its advantage. For example, Safety Facility Services has invested in the most cutting-edge technology. We can optimize our performance and create a user-friendly experience for our customers.
Check to see if the company you're looking to hire has a web-based account or app that allows everyone involved to have inspection reporting, real-time employee attendance, work order submission, invoice details, and more.
3. Company Core Values
Here at Safety Facility Services, we believe that our core values serve as the foundation for who we are as a company, how we conduct business, and how we interact with our customers. We are committed to a mindset of:
