D Organizing Corporate: Get it Together at Work!

Organizing, WorkDeanne Capotosto1 Comment

 

An organized workplace is just as important as an organized home. It will simplify your life. It will allow you to complete tasks thoroughly and with less stress. And...you will be able to find things when you need them! 

I have been organizing many offices and large companies lately. Savvy business owners know how important it is to have an organized workplace.  Upon completing an office on Sunday, my client exclaimed, “I am going to love coming to work!”

When your desk, workspace and company are all organized it means:

  • More productivity
  • More efficiency
  • Calmness and serenity
  • You will actually enjoy going to work!

If your work area is cluttered and disorganized, it causes the opposite:

  • Avoidance of tasks and the feeling of being overwhelmed
  • Less efficiency
  • Stress and tension
  • You will dread going to work!

Even if YOU know where everything is and you've learned to work in the midst of chaos, your “mess” reflects poorly on you with your boss and colleagues. Get it together for yourself and for the sake of those around you.

So clean up your space at work, get your co-workers together for an organizing day, or hire a Professional Organizer who can help you set up organized systems for your entire workplace.  The positive results will be well worth it. 

Be inspired and check out these great before & after shots from a corporate organizing job I did this month...


Before...

 This was the office area. I knew that once we sorted, we would find many obsolete and duplicate manuals.

 My client hired me because he wanted everyone to know where everything was located, not just the maintenance manager.

 The goal was to have one continuous, cleared workbench.

After...

 See that desk in the corner? That is now the office space. Stocked with only the necessary manuals and paperwork.

 Everything is grouped by theme, contained and labeled.  (I used sticky notes to mark the boxes only until the permanant labels get printed.)

 The workshop was such a success that I was asked to organize many other areas in the factory and in the office. I won't have to wear my hard hat in the office area.  :-)

I hope this project inspires you to get it together at your workplace.  If you have any thoughts or questions please leave a comment below.  I'd love to hear from you!
