Tork elevates the campus experience 

COVID-19 has forced a shift in priorities when it comes to cleaning, putting healthy and safe environments first for students1.  Research also suggests that having a clean campus and new modern buildings is key to attracting new students2.  However, current hygiene and cleaning solutions do not always meet the increased demands from everyone – starting with students through to faculty and senior management.   
“Operations managers play an important role in keeping everything running smoothly, ensuring a clean and safe campus experience. A job which can be quite complex considering the many types of facilities on campus, from lecture rooms, shared study areas, restrooms, sport facilities, student dorms and cafeterias to name a few. With the new Tork Campus Hygiene Package™ we want to help operations managers elevate the campus experience and keep students, faculty and staff healthy and safe by achieving consistently high cleaning quality throughout the entire campus”, says Anna Königson Koopmans, Marketing Director Public Interest for Essity’s professional hygiene business.
The Tork Campus Hygiene Package is a comprehensive offer of hand and surface hygiene products, services, support and tools. It was developed to help operations managers meet their new challenges by helping to improve cleaning quality and hygiene, as well as boost operational efficiency and meet their colleges’ sustainable purchasing guidelines. 
Sustainable Hygiene that improves the campus experience
Not only does the package feature the industry-award winning Tork PeakServe® Continuous™ Hand Towel system, the hand drying solution with the highest towel capacity in the market3, helping ensure hygiene products are always readily available, it also provides skincare solutions such as the Green Seal certified Tork Alcohol Gel Hand Sanitizer and the Tork Clarity Foam Soap which is made of 99% ingredients from natural origin. In fact, the entire Tork Campus Hygiene Package contributes to sustainability by encouraging efficient usage and less waste through innovations like one-at-a-time dispensing and compressed refills. Third party certifications and recycling programs contribute to cutting carbon emissions and waste. For example, the Tork Closed Loop Recycling, is a one-of-a-kind partnership for recycling of used, discarded office paper into new paper hand towels, toilet tissue- and napkin products. And to enable cleaning crews to clean when and where it is needed most, the package includes Tork Vision Cleaning – the world's leading facility management solution. Real-time data enables a transformation in the way of working with cleaning staff able to ensure dispensers are stocked 99% of the time securing access to critical hygiene products.4
Tork experts help identify opportunities to improve hygiene 
As the global leader in professional hygiene, Tork is offering a free hygiene site survey by dedicated and educated hygiene advisors to colleges and universities. The survey helps operations managers identify opportunities to improve cleaning quality and hygiene, maximize operational efficiency and meet their sustainability targets on campus as well as learn more about solutions that can help them exceed the standards outlined in CDC’s guidance for Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs). The survey can take place on site or virtually.
