Top 5 reasons you need Verge with WashBar for your restroom

Posted by Steve Thielke on Feb 20, 2017 11:00:00 AM

 

Reason #1 - You can finally get rid of all the clutter on top of your sink.

We’ve all seen washroom sinks with a hodgepodge of various faucet handles, soap dispensers, etc. These jumbled parts are not exactly easy on the eyes – nor easy to keep clean and maintained. The “all-in-one” Verge with WashBar is a sleek, attractive and intuitive fixture that singlehandedly replaces all of those varied components.

 

Reason #2 - You can finally tell your facility manager they no longer have to scrub the grout around the hand dryer on the wall.

You know those water splashes and drips that build up around hand dryers? After awhile, they inevitably collect dirt and grime. Yuck. The WashBar’s dryer keeps all the water in the sink where it belongs.

Surround Yourself with Great People

Bryan Mullett is president and chief executive officer of Menomonee Falls-based Bradley Corp., a manufacturer of commercial washroom and safety products. Creating a family culture is as important as other benefits of investing in people, he says.

“As I reflect on Bradley Corp.’s 95 years as a family-owned business, there’s a common thread that tightly weaves all of our years together: our employees. Every employee is a family member.

“My philosophy on creating a family atmosphere stems from hiring good people and then trusting them to execute. It’s nearly impossible to successfully lead a company on your own, regardless of IQ or age. A company with the best products, services or technology will not thrive if its employees are disengaged from the mission, vision and values of the leadership. It’s essential to enlist smart, committed problem solvers who share the company’s vision and then trust them to do their jobs.

“The three key ingredients to look for in employees are: personality/character; strengths appropriate for the position; and culture fit. Nothing outweighs personality. While having the right skillset is important, the fact is skills can be acquired but personalities cannot.

Bathroom experiences can easily alter one's view on a restaurant, business or school. According to Bradley's 2013 Healthy Handwashing Survey, 64% of Americans say they’ll think twice about patronizing a business or will never visit again if the restrooms are less than satisfactory.

Since restroom cleanliness is proven to be a large factor in the perception of a business, how do businesses detect and overcome uncleanly restrooms? Point-of-Sale survey kiosks may be the answer.

Posted by mirandabritton on May 9, 2014 7:03:24 AM
