Having a clean workspace at the office makes us look forward to going to our job. It gives us motivation to work and the boost of energy that makes us feel that we can accomplish anything that we have to face at work. As Marie Kondo perfectly says, “The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.” To have a clean area is one thing but the feeling of happiness it exudes is the important factor that sparks the motivation. What better way to work efficiently than to have a clean workspace?
Since the onset of this pandemic, businesses have started to have their employees work remotely from home. Different countries from around the globe have adapted to this setting and that includes New Zealand. According to an article from StatsNZ, 40 percent of employed people in New Zealand worked from home at the start of the lockdown which meant that these workers had to set-up their own office space at the comfort of their own homes. This includes setting-up their table, office chair, office equipment, and a stable internet connection to be able to mimic their workspace at the office and to build an environment that can induce work productivity. To be able to do these things, you should first know how to clean your workspace.
Here are easy and helpful tips to get you started:
The first step in cleaning your workspace is to go through all of the materials, equipment, and furniture in the area. Carefully determine what needs to be present, what can be stored, and what can be removed. To effectively declutter, it would help to ask yourself these questions:
- What is the purpose of this item?
- When have I lasted used this?
- How often do I need this?
If you have successfully answered these questions then you are on your way to clean office space!
In this step, you need to strategize the arrangement of the remaining items in your area. It will also be helpful to think about these questions:
- How often do I use this?
- What would be the logical placing of this item?
- Should the items be grouped by a certain type?
It is easy to overlook this step in the process but this step is the most important as this aims to perform all the basic cleaning steps such as: sweeping, mopping, dusting, and equipment maintenance. While decluttering is already a task in itself, cleaning is what makes your workspace clean. This is where one thoroughly cleanses and disinfects the area to achieve a clean and shiny space.
Make it a Habit
You made it! Things should look pretty good by now. Everything is organized, spaces are cleaned and equipment is in order. To sustain your neat and tidy workspace it will also be helpful to invest in a Cleaning Checklist. List down all necessary tasks in your office cleaning. Maintaining a checklist will serve as a guide for you for the next time that you need to do a quick or maybe thorough office cleaning.
The problem is, that while starting to arrange your workspace was exciting at first; it is easy to forget to clean and slowly slide things back to the way they were.
