Perks Of Having An Organized Office
I don’t think it would be easy for anyone to work in an office surrounded by mountains of unfilled documents, scattered folders, leaning stack of reports and old piles of disks. Old coffee cups, discarded reports and newspaper scattered everywhere will also make the office uncomfortable. Imagine a life if the office or the workplace you are working in is organized where you can easily spot a stapler, a pen or a keyboard easily. Perhaps you wouldn’t have overlooked that deadline last week because the note you wrote it on got buried in the piles of clutter on your desk. You should really start organizing your office especially if you think that the mess around your work place has already affected the way you work.
In the top of the list is creating a space in the office. You can achieve having a space in your office by clearing the walk way in your work area. Get rid of office equipment which has no value and are useless in your office. Get rid of all the boxes stored under your cubical and along the walls. Trust me, you will definitely gain more space by just removing all the unnecessary equipment. Remember, the less clutter you have the less stress you have.
You should also clean your desktop. Every mess happens in the desktop, that’s for real. Perhaps, the first thing that you should focus is your desktop. You might also want to shred papers which are scattered everywhere since they also add to the clutters in your office. Throw away any old post-it notes or old newspapers.
You might want to consider purchasing or requesting some hanging file folders for your desk drawers. There are also drawer organizers for things such as pens, pencils and staplers. You might also want to buy bins which are directly attached to the wall since they are also convenient to use.
The third and probably most crucial step here is to label everything. There’s no room for overboard in this step. Organizers such as drawers, bins and shelves file folders will surely help you easily find something that you are looking for. It also helps you put it back in the right place too.
In order to take note of the important events, you might want to consider hanging a dry ease board on the wall. This will cut down on the loose papers laying around.
If you want to come across as someone who is organized, efficient and capable then I can’t stress enough the importance of having an organized office space. A little time and effort organizing your office will have many lasting positive effects.
