How a Clean + Organize Office Can Boost Productivity & Happiness

We’ve all been there . . . you meet a new business colleague at the local networking event held monthly at a cafe down the street from your office. Then, as murphy’s law would have it you receive an email from them the next day that says “I have a few minutes today to stop by your office and tour your company”. You want to answer the email with much enthusiasm but as you look around your office you see piles on top of piles of clutter, your happiness is deflated like a balloon. 

Spring cleaning isn’t just something to do at home. Your workspace deserves a little TLC, too. Office spring cleaning can help improve your performance at work, it’s the reason for the smile on your face every day . . . it’s not what your coworkers think the smile is for!

The mood of your workspace has a big impact on the way you do your job. You’ll save a lot of time and energy if your things are tidy and easy to find. Investing in the process now will save you mucho time later.

“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” – Benjamin Franklin

FOCUS ON WHERE YOU’RE GOING, NOT WHERE YOU’VE BEEN

Picture this, the “future you” – What kind of space do you want to work in?

Be sure to build a workspace with that vision of “you” in your workspace in mind. You aren’t cleaning your office for your past — you’re doing it for your future – keep that your mindset.

Ask yourself this, what kind of a year do you want to have? 

A year better than last . . . Right? If you’re planning to take on projects, set up a space to work on those projects. Having a vision for the future of your office or business is clearly essential.

“Clutter is nothing more than postponed decisions.”  ~ Barbara Hemphill 

HAVE A PLAN

Cleaning + organizing is a process. And, that process starts by taking everything out of the area or what I call ZONES you’re working on.

Redesign the area for your needs. If you’re doing clean + organize in small intervals, take it a drawer at a time. If you’re spending the afternoon working on your office, you can attack larger zones, like your entire desk, making sure you get all those little bags of oyster crackers you’ve been saving from the lunchroom . . . I know, I know! 

This is one area where size doesn’t matter in any vision, the first step is to take a look at all of your items. Remove them from the zone you’re working on so you can clean the area too. (please don’t skip this step). Take the drawers out of your desk. Trust us: the drawers are dirty and need to be cleaned. Don’t be surprised if you find that award you wanted to hang since the start of the millennial. 

Take a last look at the items to make decisions about what stays and what goes bye-bye. Clean anything you’re keeping or donating. Now, find a home for the items you’re holding on to…. Every item needs a functional home, if one doesn’t exist create one.

Make sure that you have quick access to the things that you use most. Group things together into categories to help you stay organized in the future. Having a small area designated for papers or other things that need to be put away at the end of the workday can be helpful especially when you’re in a rush and things get extra busy at work.

What Can I Do For You?

What is a Professional Organizer?

A professional organizer is more than someone who has a knack for cleaning. According to the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), organizers use their expertise and tested principles to create custom systems for their clients. They teach organizing skills that help clients take back control of their environments, tame the paper piles, and keep their lives running smoothly with purpose.

A professional organizer can help with a variety of tasks, including:

  • Closet design
  • Space planning
  • Paperwork management
  • Cross-country, Local moves
  • Life Transitions (Hospital to Home, Home to Assisted Living, etc.)
  • Record management
  • Goal setting
  • Time management

 

Professional Organizers Can Help Organize & Simplify Your Life

If you’re not sure if a professional organizer is for you, see if any of the following apply to you. You might need a professional organizer when:

  • Your paperwork has overflowed onto your office floor or kitchen countertops.
  • A family member passes away and you suddenly have all of his or her belongings in your home.
  • Your pantry shelves are falling down and the door no longer shuts.
  • You’re moving and you need creative organizational solutions.
  • Your home needs an organizational redesign.
  • You want to be organized, but it never seems to actually get done.
  • You have collections that aren’t being stored or displayed how you want them to be.

A professional organizer is different from a house cleaner – Except here at CCHC, I specialize in cleaning in a logistical method in order to find simple storage solutions as I clean the space. Someone who just cleans your space will come in for a couple of hours, tidy up your things, and then will leave without making decisions about where items are more functional in a space. A professional organizer will come into your home and help create solutions to tackle your immediate organizational problems. Afterward, they will work with you to create long-term strategies so you can achieve success in this area of your space.

If you think a professional organizer can help you create an organize & simplify life contact me today @ (860)961-6824 or cchomeconcierge@gmail.com.

I would be thrilled to help you find clarity in life!

Quick Guide: Planning The Awesome Holiday Office Party

Office-Christmas-Party8 Simple Secrets to planning an Awesome Holiday Office Party

If the thought of planning the holiday office party has you hoping that the Grinch DOES steal Christmas – Just hang on, I can help you out along with taking away all the stress of planning.

 

  1. Get Organized – Recruit a couple of Elves (your teammates) No one should do it all on own! You can create a list of tasks and then delegate to your Elves (teammates)..
  2. Get Ideas – First, you need to get ideas for the party from the employees. There are two ways I have done this, that’s by setting up an online questionnaire, I use Survey Monkey . The setup is easy, but since you are delegating task this is a good one to give to your Tech Department Elves. The other way of collecting ideas is a simple Suggestion Box (they still are the best)!
  3. Choose a Theme – After, you have collected all the ideas, now choose a theme for the party. If you usually are partying around all your daily equipment-desks, computers,xerox machine, it’s kind of hard to get into the Festive Holiday Spirit. Think of unique and different options – Here is a short list of suggestions: Art Galleries, Museums, Wineries, Country Inns, Community Barns are fun, you can create a New England Christmas in Connecticut feeling!
  4. Donation Area – Tis’ The Season For Giving. Employees love to give – set up an area for your employees to bring a non-perishable food and/or Toy. Choose 2 charities, arrange to have items picked up the night of the party by a certain time. Announce that the items need to be in the boxes by 7:30 pm for example. What a great way to spread some Holiday Spirit and Magic!
  5. Hire Music – Hire a live local band that you know does a Unique Christmas Repertoire or hire a DJ that will keep the party in a positive party vibes.
  6. Make it Night-Time – Make the party an evening event, this way the employees can invite a guest, their spouse, or family.
  7. Designated Driver – Set up with Uber night of party, if anyone needs a ride home (paid for or discount) or with your Employees, create a designated driver program, they can earn merchandise or money.
  8. Give Real Gifts – As a meeting service concierge I have cleaned up after many of company Christmas parties – I had observed my first year that employees would leave behind the box or bag with the certificate and card. You know, the one you have to go online and order your gift for a certain value. I have seen employees leave certificates worth $1000 and over. They want the Real Stuff – The gift they can take home and share with their family.The gift that when they look at it makes them feel good that their management took the time to think of them.

Enjoy!
