How to Maintain and Increase Cleanliness in The Workplace This Christmas

Planning a structure like this will help your employees know where the waste bins are, where the sanitisers and wipes are to ensure they can clean up any messes.
Cleaning as you go and accessibility to wipes and solutions
There are many solutions such as wipes and cleaning solutions available to clean throughout the Christmas party which will also help the cleanliness of your office the next day.
