You spend more than forty hours in the office in a week, creating business plans and overseeing the employees. It seems like you are doing the jobs of two people, and you don’t have the time to actually organise your workload. It is no wonder that before the day ends, you are scrambling around, searching for your phone and car keys under piles of paper.
A clean office space makes for a clear head, but who has time to actually clean and organise with all the workload?
Here are some office cleaning tips your company should never live without:
Sanitise, Clean, and Disinfect Regularly
Have a hand sanitiser available around the office, as this will keep germs at low levels. You also need to clean and disinfect regularly to prevent build-up of dust, dirt, stains, and fingerprints. Of course, with all the workload, everyone in the office is dealing with, it’s very difficult to encourage employees to clean up after themselves.
The best thing you can do is to hire office cleaners—this will force the employees to tidy up the loose papers and lingering trash.
Process Papers as You Go
One of the biggest office cleanliness offenders is piles of paper—on the desks, shelves, and sometimes on the floor. The key is to implement a policy of processing papers right away. Set up a system of file folders or trays labelled with “To Read”, “To Do”, and “To File”. This way, the staff will know where everything is, and what requires attention first.
Assign a Place for Everything
The key to ensuring a clean office is to have the employees put things in the right place. This means that aside from having a paper system, you also need to assign a place for everything else. Once the employees establish a habit of putting things away, getting rid of the clutter will become a very quick task that is second nature.
Implementing these three easy tips will create a tidy and professional environment that makes the employees more productive. These tips will also make them feel well taken care of.
