How to remind your employees about office cleanliness
1. Write a memo email
Email is the easiest and the fastest way to remind your employees about the importance of following an etiquette that maintains the cleanliness in the office.
Email allows you to send one single message two all employees with a single click.
Install signs or posters on the walls of the shared facilities reminding employees about behavior etiquette they need to follow to maintain the cleanliness in the respective facility.

Mention the behavior employees need to follow in an workplace hygiene policy.
Having a hygiene policy at work allows you to address employees with hygiene issues from a company-wide perspective, which prevents the employee taking it personally.
In the end, everyone wants to work in a clean environment. The more each staff member can do to keep their office clean, the better for everybody.
On the over hand, the effect of poor personal hygiene in the workplace will negatively impact your career.
