A cluttered office has a negative impact on your employee productivity. Whether it’s simply feeling claustrophobic or having to constantly search for documents, a messy office can add frustration and stress to your employee’s workdays. If you’ve run out of on-site storage space, it may be time to consider a storage unit, like storage shelves or shelving units for some of your stuff and this will create more space for you and also for your employees. If you’re hesitant about spending on extra office storage, you may have not considered all the ways it will benefit your business. But it turns out that this simple decision could improve day-to-day operations in many ways.
When you rent space your first thought is to get enough space to accommodate your employees and you. This makes sense, given that they’re the most important assets. But that leaves you with little room for anything else. Renting extra space for your things that don’t contribute to the bottom line is not a financially sound idea. That is where renting a storage unit does make sense. The lower monthly cost of an extra storage unit is perfect for storing filling cabinets, advertising materials like signage, trade show booths, extra desks, chairs, and more.
A cluttered office looks unorganised and unprofessional. Attractive office space isn’t only beneficial to hosting client meetings, but it is good for your employees too. A good looking workplace promotes a productive and healthy work environment. Make a list of everything in your office that is not being used. Look at your list and decide if an extra storage space could handle all these items. After you tidy up and do some interior decorating you will realise how much better your office feels.
As a business owner, you should know that keeping your business documents secure and safe is extremely important. For tax purposes, you need to keep your business documents for several years before you can throw or shred them.
