‘Tis the season to spring clean the office!
You can feel it, and you can smell it – Spring air somehow gets people energized again after winter. Once the sun starts shining through those foggy windows, it finally sinks in: it’s time for spring cleaning! While motorists and homeowners take this opportunity to clear, clean, and organize their cars and homes, businesses shouldn’t neglect this responsibility, either. For easy tips on how to spring clean the office, read on!
Clear the clutter. Start with your desk, then move to the communal employee areas, then the junk drawer. Donate unused and unwanted items, and organize what you do have. Keeping your desk items to a minimum is scientifically proven to improve productivity!
Go paperless. Now is the time to sort through the paper drawers and digitize old contracts and documents. Once they’re on the computer (and backed up), shred and recycle them! Not only will your office be lighter on paper, but it’ll mean that you can access documents quicker than rifling through several drawers! While you’re at it, scrap irrelevant sticky notes still attached to your computer.
Clean up your hard drive. If you’re guilty of clicking ‘save to desktop’ with every document, you’ll have your work cut out for you. Create a logical filing system so that you can save your time (and sanity!) when looking for documents.
Spring clean. Dust the surfaces and wipe down the germy keyboards and mice. Mop the floors and vacuum the carpet so that your office is ready for the rest of the season!
Bring in the outdoors. What better way to welcome in spring than with a bunch of colorful flowers? Add bright flowers for a cheery welcome into the office and add green plants to improve the air quality of the workplace!
