In today’s fast-paced global business environment it’s common – maybe even a bit trendy – to think that the days when personal relationships and impressions ruled the roost are over. But, in many instances, that’s not actually the case. Because, while cold-light-of-day, bottom line considerations may be increasingly important and competition fierce, the choice between rewarding a contract to company A or company B often still comes down to the little things. Like the state of your office or workplace.
No one is quite sure who first said “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” but whoever came up with that particular nugget was spot on. This is just as true in business as it is in love and it can make the difference between your company succeeding or failing. If you are entertaining a potentially important client who is wavering between your company and the competition, it’s vital you make a good first impression.
When that potential client enters your office for the big meeting, they’re going to be scanning the space to try and get a read on what type of organisation you’re running. A clean, well-organised workplace sends a silent message that you and your staff are on top of things. That you take what you do seriously and are detail orientated. In other words, that you run a tight ship. And tight ships tend to inspire confidence.
Conversely, a dirty, dishevelled office says you don’t really care, don’t have much of a plan and that running a tight ship and staying on top of things aren’t really important to you. Entering into a business deal with such a company will seem like a very risky thing for that client to do. And it’s likely they’ll take their business to the competition, who understand the value of clean restrooms.
