Whether it’s a business workspace or a home office, clutter can quickly take over, reducing efficiency and profitability. To make matters worse unfiled documents create a security hazard, leaving you exposed to risks like identity theft and corporate espionage.
Make your workspace cleaner and more secure with these decluttering tips.
Stay or go
Look at every document. Is it essential? If not, get rid of it. Some documents, like tax records, need to be kept for a set period of time. Once that’s over, they’re gone!
Get it on the cloud
Many documents might be ‘keepers’, but don’t need to be in hard-copy form. Scan and upload them to a cloud service like Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.
You’ll need an efficient way to file hard-copy documents. For tips on creating a logical filing system, check out this site:
Keep up the good work
Regular decluttering will stop bad habits creeping back in and help you maintain a tidy, efficient and secure workspace. Schedule a daily tidy-up of your desk, and a monthly cleanout of draws and other storage areas.
