A disorganized workspace can be a costly disincentive to productive work. Work may already be hectic and the last thing you need is a messy desk or office space adding to the mayhem. Here are a few techniques that you can use to maintain an organized, productive office.
Every office has varying types of paperwork such as notes, forms and bills. When kept in one pile, all this paperwork can become an overwhelming mess. We recommend using labeled bins to help sort current paperwork and hanging folders in drawers for older paperwork.
Dispose of anything extra
Whether it’s old coffee cups, useless notes or unneeded paperwork, make sure all of it is tossed away or recycled accordingly. Purging and decluttering can single-handedly transform your office from an area of disarray to a work haven.
Reorganize by convenience
Keep those items that you don’t use often in drawers or cabinets in your office. Other supplies that are used often like pens and notepads should be kept within hands’ reach for a convenient and more pleasant work experience.
Do a desktop cleanup
Keep your physical desktop and your computer desktop clean and organized. A cluttered computer desktop can affect the performance of your computer. Create folders for your documents and delete all work that is no longer needed.
Last but not least, it is important to maintain your organized office daily. We recommend creating a cleaning ritual at the end of the day: toss unneeded/extra papers in the recycling, make sure all your paperwork is in correct bins and place everything where it was before.
