Could your office benefit from spring-cleaning?
You spend 40-plus hours a week in your office, so it’s no surprise you might end up looking for your car keys or mobile phone when it’s time to go home under stacks of paper at the end of the week.
A cleaner office makes for a clear head. Setting up and adhering to processes allows you to work more intelligently whilst working harder.
A clear workspace can also declutter your brain and improve productivity with clear rules and tactics.
With clear rules and strategies, a workplace clear out can also declutter your mind and improve productivity.
Here are three tips for spring cleaning your office:
1. Processing paperwork
Piles of paperwork can be one of the largest office offenders; whether it is on your desk, shelves or floor. Stacking paperwork to file later is common, but before you know it, you have a job that is too vast to address.
Processing papers as you go is the key. Establish a system of clearly labelled trays or file folders, and make it routine to use them. The same applies for your computer desktop.
2. Eliminating digital clutter
It’s as frustrating to deal with digital clutter as physical clutter.
Things you can do to help include:
- Cleaning our your inbox
- Read, reply and delete any emails you no longer require
- Remove your computer’s unused desktop icons by filing documents in folders – the fewer icons you have on your computer, the easier it is to identify those you are searching for
3. What’s inside your drawers
Most people will divert things into a desk drawer to ensure that they are out of sight. After time, you will not know what’s in your drawer – and may even become afraid to open it!
Using drawer dividers ensures that everything has a place. Following this, make sure to go through your drawers approximately every six weeks to clear any clutter.
