Perks Of Having An Organized Office
I personally think that an office or a workplace surrounded by scattered paper, folders, mountains of unfilled documents, leaning stacks of reports and disks are just uncomfortable to work with. I also find old coffee cups, discarded reports and scattered newspapers as a distraction to an office or a workplace. Imagine being able to find the stapler, pen, or even the 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. If an office equipment is not important or necessary, then you can get rid of it. Get rid of all the boxes stored under your cubical and along the walls. Removing all useless office equipment will sure add to a space in your office. Having a less clutter in your office can be less stressful.
You should also clean your desktop. Every mess happens in the desktop, that’s for real. Perhaps, the desktop should be the first thing that should be kept in your mind. You might also want to shred papers which are scattered everywhere since they also add to the clutters in your office. Getting rid of old newspapers and old post-it notes can also make your workplace more comfortable.
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.
Another step which is very helpful is by labeling everything, however, this step is quite crucial. For sure, you won’t get overboard in this step. You can easily find a tool that you are looking for by using drawers, bins and shelves file folders. It also helps you put it back in the right place too.
Hanging a dry ease board on the wall can also help in tracking important events. Loose papers laying around will be stopped.
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.
