How to Declutter Your Business: What to Store and What to Throw Away
The coming of spring is the perfect time to give your business a bit of a spring clean and declutter. It is always amazing how much paraphernalia accumulates overt the year and it is definitely worth taking a small amount of time at the end of each day to get your decluttering done and dusted.
Start with your office space
This more manageable task will help to get you in the right frame of mind to tackle the more important jobs. This doesn’t mean that you have to completely redecorate your office but perhaps make sure that any old equipment is recycled and that your desk is tidy and all of your files are in order. Encourage others to do so and make sure you take the time to properly review the way that your works pace is arranged – it makes a lot more difference than you think.
Buy new supplies
Once you have sorted through office clutter, now is the time to think about new office supplies which will help you keep your work space clear throughout the year. For example, colour coded files and labels to help you arrange and order them.
Is your software up to date?
This is another important part of decluttering your business. Up to date systems improve efficiency in a business. More modern Customer Relationship Management Software will enable you to keep better tabs on sales, manage customer information and retain your client base.
Look over your inventory
Unnecessary waste is regularly caused by businesses overstocking. Make sure you take the time to look over your wareshouse and speak to staff members. You want to be efficient in your storage of stock and insure that you are not constantly paying for the storage of unsold stock. Old and damaged stock should also be another concern.
