Lockers and Personal Storage Is a Valuable Employee Benefit

HALLOWELL Heavy-Duty Ventilated Steel LockersToday, everybody has a smartphone. But for many businesses, allowing employees to keep their smartphones with them while they work is just asking for trouble.

Yet if companies require workers to secure their smartphone somewhere while they work, they generally have to provide a safe place for them to do so.

Providing storage lockers for employees is a relatively minor upfront expense that can pay big dividends down the line. Not only can lockers keep your workspace cleaner, more organized, and safer, but they also can make it more productive.

Eliminating Clutter

Lockers offer employees a place to safely store their personal belonging while they work, such as coats, hats, gloves and scarves in cold weather months. Without lockers, many of these items could end up in the workplace, creating cluttered and even unsafe conditions.

Providing storage space for workers also can make your workspace look and feel more professional and less temporary. When your employees have a designated area where they can change into their work clothes and store their personal belongings, they will perceive your business as more organized.

An Affordable Employee Benefit

Your staff will also trust your business more when you provide secure storage space for their belongings. Lockers are one of the most affordable employee benefits because their cost can be accrued over a long period of time and they typically will last many years, if not decades.

When workers feel more comfortable working at your business, they are less likely to look for other jobs, reducing both your turnover and the cost of hiring and training new employees.

Word of Mouth MarketingSense of Belonging

Many workers will have more job satisfaction when they are provided with a storage locker. If it is a permanently assigned locker, they also can feel a greater sense of belonging. They may even feel as if they have the respect of management.

These types of “trust bonds” can enhance productivity in the workplace. When workers are happier in their jobs, they are less likely to look for other things to complain about, resulting in a more harmonious work environment in which more work gets done.

So a small investment in a  set of lockers can provide many benefits for both your employees and your business for many years to come.
