So How Will An IHus Changing Place Benefit My Staff?
Let’s start with the cash.
Your business needs to make money to survive, right? No matter how altruistic we all are, that’s the bottom line. Wages need paying.
Many leisure and tourism businesses rely not only on footfall, but also on purchases made onsite. Lunch, souvenirs, drinks, and ice-creams all go to topping up the coffers.
Making your facilities accessible means more families will stay for longer. They will be able to easily and safely change their family member without having to resort to laying them down on a toilet floor.
Indeed, many of the families we work with say a lack of accessible changing places is a reason to avoid a place altogether.
And when accessible tourism in the UK is worth £12.4 billion, can you really afford to not be accessible for all?
But how does this benefit your staff? Simple. More cash for the business means better job security for them. It means you can invest in their training and development and create jobs to make their workload manageable.
An Employer To Be Proud Of
It is no secret that todays workforce has morals. According to this article by employment experts Glass Door, today’s employees want to work for a company that exudes integrity.
For many, treating all customers and visitors with dignity and respect is a big part of that.
Providing a workplace that employees can be proud of and have faith in gives them job satisfaction and means they are more likely to be loyal to the company.
This reduces your staff turnover and maintains your reputation as a fair and equal company.
Anyone who has worked in a customer facing role will be able to recount a time when they had to deal with an unhappy customer. It can be very upsetting, especially if you feel their argument is valid but you have to toe the proverbial company line anyway.
The parents and carers of disabled children frequently speak about how frustrated and upset the people in their care become when faced with the choice between being changed somewhere unpleasant or staying dirty.
This can be upsetting to see for the parent or carer, and also your staff member.
Having an iHus Changing Places toilet will mean a healthy, happy experience for all your visitors, and staff satisfaction in return.
