Productivity, Office Design and Organization

Productivity, Office Design and Organization | Segue Systems

Your office space determines how much work you’ll get done every day. Even the sleekest and most modern design won’t help you unless it fits into your workflow. If you have to clean off your desk every day before you can work, you’re wasting time. Here are some tips for organizing your office for productivity.

  • Clear the walkways for safety and efficiency.
  • Clean off your desk. Have a place for everything. Only keep things on your desk that are important to the job at hand.
  • Minimize personal items in your office. Do you really need that blanket Aunt Sally made you or those ten pictures your child drew last year?
  • Purchase trays and caddies to organize the items in your desk.
  • Update outdated equipment. Recycle old equipment.
  • Give your eyes a soft resting place. Have one painting or plant that dresses up your office without overwhelming it.
  • Have someone walk through your office with fresh eyes to see what feels out of place or inefficient.
  • Freshen up window treatments to allow more natural light into the room.
  • Move your desk and other furniture to find the best alignment. Just because you’ve done it this way for years, doesn’t mean it’s the most efficient placement.

Productivity is the lifeblood of every small business. It’s important for your staff and you to have a clean office that allows you to work at your best.
