In today’s competitive world of business, having a clean and well-maintained office space is imperative to the success of your company. If you’re finding that your office space is not living up to the standards needed for a productive and efficient office, there is plenty of easy to maintain office space in Derby available for lease, but whether you’re looking to move or not, these few tips on how to maintain a clean, and well-organised office will require minimal effort from you and your staff.

1. Hire a reputable cleaning contractor

Hiring a good cleaning contractor is an essential step in maintaining a clean and tidy office space. A cleaning contractor can visit every day or a few times a week to keep on top of your necessary cleaning tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, and removing rubbish, leaving you free to work without having to deal with the cleaning as well.

2. Designate an office organiser(s)

Many offices today have begun recruiting organisers/managers within their own staff to keep up with the daily organisation that your office needs to stay productive. This allows your staff to best organise the office to suit their unique needs.

Not everyone shares good organisation skills, in fact, for some, keeping organised is a constant struggle. However, people who excel in an organisation often enjoy coming up with new and clever ways to organise space effectively – these are the staff members that you will want to approach to be on your office organisation team.

3. Have tasteful decor

When you have a pleasant and tastefully decorated office, you and your staff will be more inclined to want to keep it neat and tidy. Something as simple as few office plants (artificial plants are a great option if you do not think you will be able to properly care for them) will brighten up the look of your space and therefore motivate your team to keep on top of your everyday organisation.

4. Reduce unnecessary clutter

Filing cabinets are essential for keeping all of your files and important documents both safe and easily accessible. But it is possible to have too many filing cabinets around the office. If you are noticing that you have stacks of filing cabinets littered throughout every corner, you may want to invest in a large wall-unit style filing cabinet that can be placed in a central area of the room to clear up space, and make it easier for staff to locate any paperwork or files that they may need. Another option would be to look for outside storage for older files.

5. Go paperless wherever possible

With technology playing an essential role in today’s business, the need for paper files is becoming less and less necessary. Many offices today are going the paperless route by backing up all of their important files in a digital format which can lessen not only the amount of paperwork that your office will need to store but reduce your company’s environmental footprint as well.

Taking on some of the tips above is likely to make your office a nicer place to work in– and if all else fails RTC is still here for you.
