While it isn’t mandatory, it is recommended for safety purposes. A bathroom log not only assigns cleaning tasks, but also creates a culture of responsible safety practices. If water or soap is left on the floor, employees or customers could slip and get seriously injured.
A sick leave policy is important for two reasons. First, if your employees come to work ill, they may get other employees and customers sick, spreading illness and creating staffing and service issues for your business. Second, it is a way for you to let your employees know you care for their health and respect them, which will help improve their morale and performance.
We all hope that a crisis never happens, but the truth is they do happen. If you are unprepared, a crisis can easily lead to loss of your business. Make plans to ensure you and your employees are prepared for a fire, tornado, or other unforeseen event. That way, if a crisis does happen, it will be less chaotic and recovery will be more efficient.
