Swing into Spring by cleaning the the office!
Every office should find time to Spring clean. Having a clean and clutter-free office can work wonders for the overall functionality of your employees and business.
Keep Only What You Need at Arm’s Length
Only keep essential items on your desk and within reach. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be stored away.
Create a Filing System
Ongoing project files can be kept close by but anything else should be filed away. Make sure you file paperwork appropriately so you can find it again easily.
When cabinets, drawers and files become overloaded, it’s time to get rid of items or look at boxing them up and storing them in a more centralised storage system such as mobile shelving.
Divide Your Workspace
Your desk can be used for your computer and for storing current project files but ensure you have a separate area for the storage of office supplies and a filing area for paperwork.
Organise Your Drawer
Go through your drawer regularly to clear out anything that is not being used or should be stored elsewhere.
Appropriately Store Personal Items
Personal items can crowd a space if there is no specified place for storing them. Wall hooks or lockers should be used to store these items to reduce clutter and trip hazards.
Sort Your Desktop
Your computer is an essential tool. A cluttered desktop with too many icons can be overwhelming and make it hard to find documents. Create a logical filing digital system so you can find what you need when you need it.
