2021 has finally arrived, and if “organizing your office” has been on your to-do list, you’re in luck. For this post, we wanted to highlight some of the ways you can ready your office for the upcoming year.
Encourage staff to de-clutter their desks
One of the best ways to start organizing an office is to ask your staff to purge their desks. Are they old stacks of paperwork that can be shredded? Do they have things in (or on) their desks that they no longer need or want? If they don’t need it and don’t use it, it can probably be purged.
Clean and purge the office
One manager we spoke with recalled a company he used to work for, that printed a quarterly magazine for its customers. “We had shelves that were packed with back issues, some of which were 5-6 years old,” he said. “I have no idea why we were holding onto them. We had no use for them. Last year, when the company decided to stop printing the magazine, I decided it was time to purge the back stock. Not only did it make the air in the office feel less dusty, it freed up a lot of space.”
Don’t forget to go through your supply cabinets. Do you have old binders, three-hole punches or coffee mugs that haven’t been used in years? Purge them. Do you have old laptops, computer monitors, or other related tech that’s been sitting in storage for more than 12 months? These types of items can likely be donated.
Once you finish cleaning out your supply cabinets, turn your sights to the office kitchen. Go through all the cabinets and drawers to see what you use, what’s trash, and whether you have any food that needs to be purged. If you stumble upon loose plastic knives and forks, consider replacing them (for covid-19 safety purposes). When you do replace them, store the plastic cutlery in plastic bags.
