A clean workplace is essential to a high functioning work environment. If workplaces become cluttered, they may become hazardous or hinder your employee’s efficiency. Here are six tricks to help you and your coworkers keep your workplace clean!

  1. Have a physical inbox!

We all have too many email inboxes, yet people no longer seem to have a physical mailbox at their desk. By having a physical inbox, you can easily keep new physical papers in one place and more easily equipped.

  1. Have a trashcan within reach!

Having a trashcan by your desk is essential to a clean workplace. If you must get up to reach a trashcan or recycling bin, then it is too far away (nor do you want to be playing trashcan basketball). Make sure you can easily reach your trashcan from the comfort of your desk.  

  1. Schedule a regular cleaning time!

Scheduling a 30-minute time frame to clean your desk each week is a good idea if you want to stop clutter from building up. The longer you leave clutter, the more it builds up. Taking the time to clean regularly minimizes your time spent cleaning.

  1. Never put trash down

Whether it is a food wrapper or a piece of paper, try to refrain from putting trash anywhere but the trashcan! Get into the habit of putting things in the garbage right away, and you will avoid a lot of mess. As well, a half-filled soda can is an accident waiting to happen...

  1. Minimize oncoming clutter!

Stop that oncoming flood of paper and junk emails now! Do your best to minimize incoming clutter by cancelling unnecessary subscriptions and reducing the number of paper memos and reports you use.

Keeping your workplace clean has many benefits. It is a well-known fact that you can significantly reduce your stress by having an organized workplace. Reduced stress means better performance and a healthier body as well. You also have a better public image when you have a clean workplace.
