Wasting time – Can’t find information 

Losing money and working ineffectively

Its time to Organize your work environment

A disorganized office costs more to run. Supplies, tools and equipment go missing because nothing is organized or put away properly. Those things have to be replaced to get the job done, and twice as much money has been spent in the end. Plus, you spend valuable time searching for missing items, files or paperwork.

In fact, some studies have revealed that the average senior business leader spends nearly four weeks each year navigating through messy or cluttered desks, looking for lost information. Does that sound like productive time to you? Is this you?

What a great time to do something about this issue? Just imagine starting 2018 with all your action planning completed including a well-organized work environment. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get stuck into taking action. Remember a thought is worthless, unless it is implemented. And you know you don’t have to wait for a new year’s resolution.

If you are like me, you need to know what are the benefits of having an organized environment. Well here are some –

  • Better communication.An organized office environment encourages better internal communication. With a central area for staff communication, it is easier to share sales news, track targets, and plan and monitor projects.
  • A manageable budget.Organized spaces will allow you to quickly see what you have, what you need, and when you might need more. This supports the creation and sustaining of budgets, especially for supplies and equipment.
  • Increased work ethic and morale.When you and your staff take care of your surroundings, it makes the workplace a more pleasant place. Taking care shows that you value your work and the people who work for you.
  • Better time management.Simply put, you spend less time looking for things and more time actually working. An organized office will complement and support your time management strategies.

Have I convinced you yet!  So, get started and enjoy the process along the way. Put on a let’s organize our environment function with your team members, and make it fun.

IF you have a home office, then get the family involved and look at ways of influencing your family members, to gain buy in. It is always great to practice our leadership skills on our family along the way.

All the best in Business
