Some find it an exercise in futility. Others are fussy to the point of obsession…and still never satisfied. And then there’s the eternal question: just how important is a clean, organized office? Can a tidy look somehow make you seem less productive or not very busy? Isn’t a messy office supposed to symbolize genius-at-work? Einstein himself is quoted as saying that “if a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” And just look at Steve Jobs’ office…
Accumulated clutter can easily turn to chaos, though, and office spring cleaning season is under way. Researchers at Michigan State University dug even deeper, claiming that cleaner, more organized work spaces lead to higher productivity and more accurate performance.
Health and basic cleanliness were also crucial findings of the study. Germs, dirt, and poor indoor air quality add up to sicker employees and higher absenteeism. According to the CDC, businesses lose 111 million workdays a year due to the flu alone! Clutter contributes to that.
Even with more work environments’ becoming less reliant on paper, proper document storage, retention, and display are still listed as high organizational priorities for efficient operations. Meeting that demand at eye level atop cubicle partitions and mounted on the wall? Enter Cubicle Brochure Holders and Wall-Mount Multi-Pocket Brochure Holders.
