There’s something magical about working in an office environment that’s clutter-free. Whether your workspace is a home office, you go into the office, or a bit of both, an organized office helps you work smarter, be more efficient, and boost your productivity.
Now more than ever, people are setting up office spaces in their residences; the number of people who work from home has tripled from 5.7% to 17.9%. There’s no more “leaving work at work” when your deskspace is integrated into your living room, kitchen, or dedicated home office. This may have an unexpected impact on your “hours off.”
Office clutter creates stress, and disorganization can prevent you from doing your best work. In one 2018 study, a clean, organized desk was linked to enhanced job satisfaction and productivity. How’s that for working smart?
If you work from home, you stand to benefit the most from an organized space that promotes work-from-home balance.
