Office Spring-Cleaning: Tips for Re-Organizing Your Workspace


May is finally here, and so is the warmer weather. It’s time to pack up the winter clothing and do some spring-cleaning – both at home and at the office. Let’s face it, you’ve been hibernating behind those stacks of paper on your desk for long enough. And the fact of the matter is, it’s impacting your work performance.  Studies show office clutter undermines productivity and motivation.

Fortunately, Forbes magazine offers some helpful tips on how to streamline the mess and keep your office tidy year-round:

1)     Prearrange a weekly appointment to clean

2)     Don’t make piles; set limits

3)     Your desktop is not a storage space (that’s what desk drawers are for)

4)     Get it off the floor

5)     Eliminate digital clutter (organize your inbox as you would your filing cabinet)

6)     Disinfect regularly

A survey by Adecco found that 75 per cent of workers believe people are most productive when their workspace is clean. Start spring off right – with a fresh desk and a renewed enthusiasm at work.
