Your office is a very valuable piece to the overall success of a business or organization. It can be a tone setter for you personally and as a business overall.  Listed below are tips that will help keep your office organized, while helping your business take another step to success. 

Manage Your Workspace- Manage your work area. A good way to start the office organizing process is to keep the top of your work area as clean and clutter free as possible. Only keep items on top of your desk that you intend to work on or complete on a daily basis. Not only will this keep you more organized, but it will give you a greater since of accomplishment at the end of the day because you will not have endless piles of paperwork and other items on your desk.

Invest In an Effective Filing System- Have you ever thought, “I have all of this extra paperwork and I do not know where to put it?” The good news is there is a way to fix this problem.  Invest in an effective filing system. Whether it is electronically or manually, an effective filling system will give you the peace of mind knowing that all of your important items and documents are stored properly and can be accessed easily. This will allow you to free up more of your time to attend to projects that better benefit your business on a daily basis.

Secretaries are Saviors- A good administrative assistant can be the gas that makes the car go. The behind the scenes work they perform on a daily basis is vital to the success of any organization or business. Without them, many bosses and top executives’ lives would be made more difficult, taking their focus away from other challenges a business may face. A good administrative assistant’s detailed approach can not only help organize your office, but can help save companies money as well.  

Clean Out Your Email/Mailboxes Frequently- Many offices receive mail frequently. On top of this, with such a strong emphasis put on technology today, many offices and businesses also receive mail electronically as well. This can create challenges for many of today’s offices in a sense that all mail received must be handled in an organized manner. It is important for offices of all sizes to keep track and manage the mail they receive on a regular basis. It is important for all business offices to periodically discard of old mail that they no longer need. This will help you in two ways. First, it will allow the office to physically get rid of old documents that are no longer needed which will create more physical space. Secondly, deleting electronic mail will allow you to save space on a computer’s hard drive, which will lead to your technology running more effectively and efficiently. 

Invest in More Space Whenever Possible- There may come a time in the life of your office where an upgrade in space area may benefit the overall organization of the office. If it is financially feasible, more space will allow you more storage for supplies, which will take stress off you and your employees, allowing you to approach every day with a clear mind focused primarily on your business.
