Organizing The Workplace for Maximum Efficiency

13 May 2019Dylan Campbell

An efficient office saves you time and makes your employees happier. Probing through jumbled drawers, tangled wires, stacks of papers and boxes of items fallowing around, can be a burden when you factor the time lost looking for things that you can find with ease, but aren’t. Chaotic electronic files and confusion can be a big burden also. Then what about the mental stress? Clutter can lead to irritating stress in employees.

Here are eight ways your teams can organize their electronic and physical work spaces.

Get it off the Floor

Go plumb with shelving units and bookcases. Floor space or Desktop space usually becomes used up. Vertical storage is definitely more efficient for space management and places more at eye level.

Go Paperless or Purge

Implement this method to save your personnel the stress later. Every week, after end of tiring office work, it’s normal to have papers pile up in the office. Paper works, contract terms and other stuffs that you have to preserve in paper form must be filed away quickly. Run through every single piece of paper in your workplace by utilizing this System of Three:

  • Shred/toss it
  • File it or
  • Take action from it

File your vital paperwork using the color-coded filing classification. Consider getting a policy to archive and scrap archived files after a particular time, too.

Take it to next level – Go paperless!

Wrap Computer Cords

Electrical cords and computer cables can turn out to be an eye sore and a tangled mess. Fortunately, special cord covers and twist ties can make things neat. Consider tagging your cords, so you can easily locate the right one when you want to move something or disconnect.

Make Divided Drawers available to everyone

Buy inexpensive wooden or metal dividers — or instead, recycled plastic. Organize pens; notepads and sticky notes; paper clips; scissors and other items. Not only will a planned drawer save you time, it keeps small objects ordered and stress-free to find so your staffs can concentrate on what’s needed – work!

Use a Labeler to Make Shelves Organized

It’s not only files that require labels. Drawers and shelves can benefit when labeled. With that everybody in the workplace knows the exact place to return files and other items.

Save Company Documents on a Central Cloud Location

A good way to preserve time and dodge the need for everybody to set up individual “computer-generated filing” system is by saving company documents on a single central cloud location for. Options like OneDrive or Google Drive allow you to create central folders by client or topic, to share documents.

Utilize Project Management Software

The use of project management software can keep your staffs on track with tasks. More notably, it eradicates email instructions and paper to-do lists, and mix-up that come from them.

Build a Printing Station

Designate a place in your workplace to accommodate the printer and printer materials. By putting the printer in a cabinet, it reduces clutter and modestly looks much finer for visitors and workers who work at the space each business day.

Just had my Levitate Electric Height Adjustable Desk delivered and installed. Absolutely recommend this company based on my experience. The desk quality is excellent as was the unbeatable price. The communications and customer service was first class. Thanks Dylan and also Lindsay who delivered and assembled the desk.Might get another one for my wife now!

Shopping for home office furniture today. Dylan was very helpful and was very understanding of my requirements. Would definitely recommend.
Bought a new office chair for summer. I am a large guy and the chair was rated just above my weight. Sadly the chair began to break and bend. I returned it to Danny's with no receipt but the date and price I paid. Dylan was able to find my order, took the chair for repairs and even gave me a loaner chair. I expected about 1 week turnaround but was surprised it took 3 days. Awesome company and awesome service. You have a customer for life.

The whole process was so neat and tidy without any hiccups and hidden conditions, from the quoting stages to the delivery i was informed of what was happening and the service has been great...
I was extremely sceptical when I initially read Dannys had a 5 star google rating. However after visiting there today and buying a wonderful chair I perhaps think they deserve 6 stars rather than 5.Thanks Marek hope this gets you a pay-rise.

Have just received the delivery of new furniture for a home office. The staff at Danny's Desk were great to deal with, very friendly and helpful and not pushy. Great selection of everything one would need and good prices. Was kept informed regarding the delivery with a call after purchase, a call to confirm the day and time for delivery and a call on the day of prior to actual delivery. Would highly recommend.

I bought one chair more than one year ago, and it’s built with high quality and very comfortable. One thing happened to me recently that again proves this company really cares about it’s customers.I was lodging tax return and couldn’t count my receipt. So I write a letter to a email address listed on their website, asking for help, but not actually expecting a reply as the purchase happened more than one year ago.Amazingly, I got a reply the next morning from one of their staff named Marek (my email is precious evening). I was so grateful with them. I highly recommend this company if you want to buy a chair.
