Spring is around the corner, and that means cleaning becomes imminent. If you’ve been putting off decluttering during the long winter months now is the time to tackle this project. Organizing your office can spur productivity and energize your environment.

Starting the Process

The first step in decluttering your office is to make time for it. It’s easy to say you’ll do it, but until you commit a chunk of your work day, it will just be a rough idea. You should view decluttering your office space as an investment in the productivity, and you're the future of your business. Eliminating a mess will pay for itself.

Having a system in place to stay organized can help you decide how you want to go about cleaning up your workspace. Consider how you contact and continue communications with clients. What would help to improve these strategies? This may also affect how you set up your files and equipment.

Utilizing Tools You Have

Once you’ve set aside time to declutter your office, start with digitization. Take all the documents that have been floating around your desk and scan them into your cloud software. You can then file them away knowing finding them will be as simple as searching through your digital database. A scanner will be your closest ally in this process. Once you’ve created a system for scanning and storing documents, future files will be easy to organize.

If you want to commit to keeping your office organized you can also consider implementing new print policies that would limit the number of documents your office prints. By using cloud software to send and collaborate on files, you can keep paper off your desk.

Once you have gotten your office to where you want it, you’ll notice new energy in the air. To learn more about using tools such as scanning, call us today!
