On average, we spend 40 hours a week in the office, so it’s important that these spaces are kept free from clutter. From spare desks and chairs, to documents that pile up over time, everything can build up and create clutter in an office environment. Keep your office free from clutter with these easy tips.
- Filing system
Create an effective filing system for your staff that is easy to use and maintain. Documents are the most time consuming thing to find if you don’t know where to start looking. Sort your files in a way that makes most sense to everyone who needs to access the information. Filing systems shouldn’t be limited to paper either. Organise your email inbox by creating folders that make it easier for you to keep and locate important emails.
- Cabinets and drawers
Provide staff with their own drawers and cabinets that fit seamlessly beneath their desks or along office walls to keep their desk tops clear from clutter from personal items.
- Pack away the kitchen
Keep the kitchen clutter-free by organising cutlery and utensils into shelves and drawers. Encourage staff to pack things away instead of leaving them in the sink. Having a dishwasher is a great way to solve the problem of having piles of dirty dishes in the kitchen.
- Create designated spaces
Setting up specific zones for tasks can help improve the productivity of your team. Consider reconfiguring the office to create a more open and inviting work environment that suits everyone. Analyse what works best with your team and rearrange the office to suit. Don’t forget to rely on natural lighting when possible to help make the office feel more spacious.
