In its broadest terms, “workplace wellness” can encompass a wide range of opportunities for today’s facilities managers . . . and the restroom is a great place to start. The workplace restroom is no longer a non-descript space supplied with low-performing supplies. To please today’s high-energy and demanding work force, the restroom has to have a pleasing, modern design; be well lit and ventilated; and be hygienic with the latest in automated touch-free systems for everything from the commode to the sink area for washing and drying hands. The end result can actually help improve a company’s image, help reduce wasted supplies and help the staff to be more productive. Healthy people and a healthy business go hand in hand.
