At Swept we talk about employee retention in the cleaning industry a lot. Because 1, constant employee turnover almost always has a negative impact on customer satisfaction… and 2, we’ve surveyed janitorial business owners and found that keeping cleaners is one of the biggest challenge the industry faces.
