How to Create an Organised Office
If your company has recently moved office or undergone refurbishment, it can take a while to settle into your new environment and the early weeks may feel slightly chaotic. But once the dust has settled, you'll no doubt want your new office to showcase your company brand and give off the best impression to visitors - and this means getting organised.
A pleasant, organised office environment allows for both creativity and productivity, so here are 5 simple ideas to help you create an organised office that you and your staff can be proud of:
Clear Desk Policy
Things are going to be slightly different in your new office, and it's good to establish new ground rules right from day one. Announce to staff that there will be a clear desk policy so at the end of each working day, computers need to be shut down and all desks left in a clean and tidy state.
Establish a Recycling Policy
Place recycling containers close to printers and copiers so that paper can be easily recycled. Also consider a special recycling place for cans, plastic cups etc that can also amount in an office.
Enclosed Storage Solutions
When designing or reconfiguring your new office space, consider enclosed storage solutions with sliding doors so that files are not too much on show. Keeping doors shut on filing cabinets will make your office look far more tidy and will avoid the risk of paperwork or files coming lose and getting lost.
If you are upgrading or renewing your workstations when you move office, make sure they fit well into the space and you consider their purpose. Do staff need drawer cabinets placed under desks to store stuff? Does every desk need a computer, a phone? Once you've established what each staff member needs you can start discussing your requirements with an office furniture company to help you choose the best solution.
Create a Filing System Workflow
If your current filing system is looking cluttered and disorganised, it's time to get labelling and set an orderly filing system that helps you locate your files and paperwork easily.
Don't forget that a good clear out can help to make your office look better and more organised. Use the Office Clearance Guide to help you dispose of items easily and in an environmentally friendly way.
