With 96% of office workers believing that good organisation is the sign of a better leader, it’s time to keep track of your office supplies and help boost staff productivity


K


eeping a happy and productive office is no simple mater, but good organisation helps. It’s


not just the right mix of talent and effective procedures you need, it’s the right supplies, services and equipment too. You might be surprised by the


difference a clean workplace makes, especially when it comes


to productivity. For one thing, it can help reduce sickness absence. Office furniture and equipment can be breeding grounds for germs and bacteria, and viruses such as flu can survive on hard surfaces for 24 hours. If you want to reduce the risk


of injury and accidents it's a good idea to make sure your office environment isn't one that's


dominated by over-spilling bins, messy desks and other hazards. A clean and tidy workspace


can help keep spirits high and boost morale. No one wants to work in a dirty or untidy space, and being disorganised can cost time and money. In that vein, a recent US survey showed that three in four office workers believe a disorganised office is


indicative of deeper problems at a company. Remember, too, that the


perception of your company starts with its appearance. Your office is an extension of your product or service and may be one of the first impressions that new clients or staff have of your business. A clean, fresh office creates a professional atmosphere.
