Cleaning up the workplace one sign at a time
19 July 2019
From offices, student halls and staff rooms to kitchens and cleaning cupboards – communal areas across the country are littered with cleaning signs featuring the nation’s muck-motivated passive aggression. Not to mention bad grammar.
Robert Scott – one of the UK’s largest cleaning product manufacturers and distributors – has launched a new series of signs designed to empower the nation’s facilities managers and janitorial staff to be the friendly voice of the industry and clean up that noticeboard negativity once and for all.
With input from the company’s Clean Team, Robert Scott has created a set of free downloadable signs for different areas – from communal kitchens and public bathrooms to staff rooms and janitorial cupboards. The new signs have been designed to inject some good will across the workplace ahead of Random Acts of Kindness Day on Sunday 17th February 2019.
Alastair Scott, sales director at Robert Scott, explained: “We’ve all come across those signs in public spaces, often written in angry, bold lettering and probably underlined in red with a misplaced apostrophe or two. While it doesn’t really instill positivity in the workplace, the signs are often doing an important job to remind people to be considerate of others and to keep things clean and tidy.”
He continues: “We saw an opportunity to inject a bit of fun and a little cleaning know-how into creating a selection of signs that will continue to convey those important messages, but with a brighter, friendlier tone that will hopefully encourage more people to oblige and make for a nicer environment for everyone. We look forward to seeing the signs across the country and encourage people to share their pictures with us on social media to help us in our mission to rid the workplace of those passive aggressive posts once and for all.”
