Organization and efficiency are crucial to the success of a business. While you can certainly get away with a messy workplace and an inefficient technique, you can always count on them catching up to you.
Here at Perkaroma, we know that company culture contributes quite a bit to the well-being and success of a business. We also know, however, that it should never be at the cost of organization and efficiency.
If you recognize that there are ways your business could improve its organization or efficiency, today’s blog is for you. We are going to start a two-part series that provides you with a few tips to enhance these areas of your business. Let’s dive right in.
One of the ways that disorganization quickly takes over is through clutter. This is something that happens in all walks of life, but it’s one that you should try to discourage in the office. From personal belongings to misplaced items, it’s easy for clutter to build up and create a mess that you can’t turn back from. The good news is, there’s an easy way to minimize this mess.
Start by separating the items that have a home and need to be held onto. These are the items that you are going to gather, redistribute, and organize. If there’s something that is not where it belongs, make sure that it gets back to its rightful place. Just like that, you’ll notice the size of the mess has shrunk.
Purging is another excellent way to reduce messes and encourage organization. While it’s not always in the form of a mess, it’s not so uncommon for businesses to hold onto things for too long. If you’re really looking to enhance organization and efficiency, you’re going to need to start working your way through things and purging.
Whether we’re talking about documents that are no longer relevant or needed, equipment that no longer works, or clutter that doesn’t have a purpose — get rid of it. As you go about purging, make sure that you are disposing of all things properly. Some confidential documents may need to be shredded while others need to be taken to a facility to be destroyed properly. The same can be said about most technological equipment.
Whatever it may be, start by deciding what you no longer need and are choosing to get rid of. Once you’ve completed that you can make sure that you’re taking all of the necessary precautions in disposing of it.
Designate Work Zones
As silly as it may be to create work zones, it is often necessary. Regardless of the industry that you’re in or the layout of your office space, you can likely think of an area that really does need to be dedicated solely to the work that is done there.
Once you’ve determined what these areas are, make sure that they have all the necessary tools and supplies that they would need to complete a job. Not only should this help with the efficiency of your employees, but it should reduce the amount of clutter and unnecessary items that build up in these areas.
Invest in Storage
From the work zones that we just finished touching on to the overall optimization of the available space, storage is a crucial part of increasing the organization level that is had in your office. Now, it doesn’t have to be incredibly expensive or over the top when we talk about the addition of storage. At the end of the day, the storage that you add should not only improve the system of work that is currently in place, but it should also make your workplace look and feel more organized.
File cabinets, Tupperware, shelves, binders and the like are just a few examples of storage options that you could take advantage of within your office space.
