Most of us know that a clean and tidy work landscape can boost productivity and keep us on task, but keeping on top of that task can sometimes be overwhelming. That is why today is National Clean Off Your Desk! Offices can be busy and hectic, which is why there are many benefits to cleaning off your desk.
Level Up Your Efficiency. If you keep a neat desk, you can retrieve important documents in a timely matter, especially if your boss calls you for an impromptu meeting to discuss a particular project. Having projects handy will not only save you time, but it will also make you look good to your boss, always a good thing.
First impressions count. If you’re looking to build a positive relationship with a client, you’ll want to create a great first impression. Cluttered desks can damage the look of your workplace, giving clients the idea you might be disorganized.
Improved office security. Whether you’re working in a health care clinic, law office, or small business, privacy and security are important these days. You don’t need the extra worry of leaving critical documents out. Consider the security of your business and keep your desk clean and clear.
What you can do: If in doubt, throw it out. Begin with unwanted items. Throw, shred, and recycle these items.
Afterward: Organize, declutter, and destress your desk. A cluttered desk creates anxiety. There’s no need to add to the stress of your workday.
Create an event. Instead of a weekly office meeting, have a “cleanest desk” competition. You can even post your pictures on social media. The idea is to create a bonded group with everybody having the same goal of cleaning their desks.
