Everyday Office Organization Tips and Tricks for a Clean Space
While you may think taking time out of your workday for organization isn’t worth it, the reality of the situation may surprise you. The truth is, being disorganized greatly hinders your time and productivity in the office. You don’t have to do a complete overhaul of your entire office, but you should take the time to create an efficient workspace.
To help you get the most out of your workday, we’ve put together four office organization tips and tricks to help you boost productivity.
1. Re-do Your Filling System
Each new day puts us further and further into the digital age, and the need for paper filing has gone out the window. However, this doesn’t mean that your digital filling should be left unattended. Don’t let your online files become a cluttered mess. Dedicate some time each week for filing important documents away in specific folders.
2. Organize Your Space and Reduce Clutter
Although it seems like everyone has a junk drawer, this drawer could be hindering your productivity. After all, it’s hard to be productive when you’re constantly searching for a stapler, paper clips, or sticky notes. Adopt a system for items you need to have on and in your desk. Have a designated area for your pens, sticky notes, folders, and documents. At the end of each day, put your items away, allowing you to start each day with a neat and tidy desk.
3. Put Your Desktop in Order
Your desktop should receive the same treatment as your desk. Don’t allow your desktop to become cluttered with various files and images. Follow the digital filing system you created earlier to have an organized desktop that won’t raise your stress levels.
4. Remove Distractions from Your Workspace
While it may be difficult to remove all distractions from your workspace completely, you can remove yourself. Investing in a pair of noise-canceling headphones may be a smart move if you work in close quarters with your colleagues. They’ll be able to reach you if they need to, but the silence will help you get some real work done.
