In most offices, you will find a shared workspace with a printer, fax machine, and other office supplies. Because the entire office shares this space, it is difficult for any one person to feel responsible for keeping this room in order and it can quickly become untidy and hard to find items. We all know that a clean work environment can lead to greater productivity, so it is safe to assume that a disorganized environment can lead to less productivity. After all, when you spend most of your time trying to locate extra printer paper, you are taking time away from other productive tasks in your day.
At Clean Office Exec, we believe that a tidy environment creates positivity in the office, so we are sharing a few easy ways to help your team keep your shared workspace clean and tidy.
Make sanitizer readily available: When you are sharing a space, you are going to come in contact with germs. Leave hand sanitizer out so team members can clean their hands after working in the shared spaces.
Make cleaning supplies readily available: Just like you want to clean your hands, you also want to clean your shared spaces. Make sanitizing wipes or paper towels available and make it a point to wipe down counters and machines after each use.
Organize with labels: Don’t assume everyone knows where each supply belongs. Make it easy for everyone by creating a home for each item and then labeling that area.
Ask everyone to clean up after each use: tidying up in small doses after each use will be easier than spending an hour or two cleaning each week.
Create a weekly chore wheel: Still not sure you can make these tips work? Consider creating a weekly chore wheel where you assign a person to a specific area of the office or assign a person to do a massive tidy up weekly. When everyone takes ownership of your shared workspace, it will lead to greater productivity.
