How improved workspace organisation can lead to better workforce productivity
Documents, paperwork and files! These are all an integral and inevitable part of every organisation. Storage of all such paperwork demands dedicated space or else it may up as clutter. This clutter affects productivity and occupies space in your office that costs you money every day. If you find yourself stressed about reams of paper and boxes of files lying around in your office, it’s time to think about organising your workspace.
The pandemic has changed the dynamics of workplace and more employees prefer to work remotely. But a research conducted by PWC stated otherwise – over 43% of executives want to be fully back in the office as soon as feasible. This means organisations will need to put in proper preventative measures for employee safety. Space and storage planning will become utmost priority. While we cannot disregard that commercial leasing, rates are expensive and increase exponentially. A clean start towards workspace transformation can provide extra space and a conducive environment to garner productivity.
The first step towards workspace organisation is understanding how much paperwork and equipment you are dealing with. Your admin and facilities team will be your biggest saviors in figuring this out. They will know exactly how many files are stored, which are necessary to be stored and which can be discarded. The pandemic has compelled many to work remotely. This has led to offices re-evaluating if their teams can work remotely, even after the pandemic, to reduce the spending on commercial leasing, infrastructure etc. If your organisation is moving towards the same direction, you can evaluate and discard assets like office furniture and equipment that are no longer used.
If your organisation requires your employees to work full time during the pandemic and you are worried about the safety of your employees, you may want to explore Genio.

Clean it up
The next step in workspace organisation is to execute the cleaning up process. You should start with segregating the files and documents first. Unwanted files should be discarded securely. The same should be done with office equipment, furniture and other assets. The ones not required should either be sold, donated or scrapped. There will always be files needed to be stored for documentation and audit purposes. Such papers should be scanned and saved digitally on a cloud storage or within the premises.
