Cleanliness is next to godliness and in this context, a definite prerequisite to success. The problem of having a communal space is that people are mostly not held accountable in the order and cleanliness of it, and this also holds true in the office. The effect of having a messy workspace would be a loss of creativity, patience, and motivation to work, and a decrease of overall happiness and productivity.
Thus 5S of Good housekeeping, a structured and systematized approach on housekeeping originated in Japan, is practiced widely in many organizations as a precautionary measure to address this risk from happening. This training focuses on achieving a clean workspace and good hygiene, both of which are equally important, as well as developing a standardized system to foster safety, cut cost and enhance employee and customer experience.
“If you want to understand why 5s is important, you must first understand its benefits. 5s, or any lean system, helps to eliminate waste, streamline production, and optimize efficiencies. When you adopt 5s thinking, you make a commitment to put safety, organization and effectiveness ahead of production deadlines, profits and output. The end result is always an increase in overall success, though growing pains will occur as the processes are implemented”
