Use These Tips To Declutter Your Workplace
As a business owner, you are always looking for ways to improve productivity. One free change you can make is working to increase organization in your office. You may think that decluttering your office is a low-priority item, but Brother International Corporation reports that each employee wastes about 76 business hours annually searching for lost items around the office and on the computer. This translates to $177 billion dollars in lost wages domestically each year.
To help your business avoid that kind of waste, use these office organization tips.
o If you have excess cables and cords around your office, coil them and secure them with cable ties.
o Opt for wireless and Bluetooth connectivity whenever possible to minimize the amount of loose cords throughout your office.
o Purify your office by shredding outdated or unnecessary documents.
o Consider rearranging your office to maximize space and minimize trip, slip, and fall hazards.
o Take the time to appraise your filing cabinets, bookcases, and other shelving to ensure that everything is effectively organized.
o Donate outdated equipment.
o Convert hard copy records to digital files. This will not only free up valuable storage space, but will also allow you to store your data in an off-site location (i.e. the cloud) so it will be protected should something happen to your business itself.
o Ask your employees how you could improve your office organization. Work together to create a company-wide organizational policy that everyone can use.
