Tork launches Office Hygiene Package

Tork Office Hygiene Package improves workplace satisfaction

New from Essity is the Tork Office Hygiene Package, designed to help businesses improve staff satisfaction in the workplace.

The package incorporates smart hygiene solutions, a new air freshener and the Office Complaints Minimiser, which allows facility managers to test their hygiene and cleaning knowledge against industry data.

Gripes about toilets account for more than 45% of office building complaints, according to a recent Statista study. A second survey carried out in 2022 revealed that 86% of office employees regard cleanliness as the most important aspect of a good working environment, while 85% believe the state of the washrooms reflects the cleanliness of the building overall.

Anna Königson Koopmans, Marketing Director Commercial for Essity’s professional hygiene business, said: “If restrooms are run well and efficiently, cleaning teams have more time to clean the rest of the facility. Our research shows that better cleaning quality leads to better employee workplace satisfaction.”

The Office Complaints Minimiser is a gamified digital challenge aimed at improving facility managers’ knowledge about hygiene and cleaning solutions in a bid to reduce complaints and save time.

Also incorporated in the Tork Office Hygiene Package is Tork Vision Cleaning, which is designed to take the guesswork out of the cleaning operation. Using real-time data from people-counters and connected dispensers, Tork Vision Cleaning indicates to facility managers and cleaning staff those situations where extra cleaning might be required, and where dispenser refilling is needed. This reduces the number of dispenser checks required by up to 91% while also ensuring that all dispensers are kept topped up 99% of the time.

Helping to keep the office environment smelling fresh is the new Tork Constant Air Freshener, a propellant-free aircare system that neutralises odours continuously and evenly. The dispenser can be mounted at a reachable height for cleaners, unlike many systems that need to be placed high up on the wall in order to be effective. This means refills can be easily integrated into normal cleaning routines, while the product is third-party certified as easy to use for speedier refilling.

Anna continued: “Facility managers are facing multiple challenges including supply chain issues, labour shortages, sustainability legislation and a high staff turnover. Taking the pressure off them is important for us and we are always looking at how our products and services can deliver both a great user experience and drive more efficient cleaning.”
