Spring is finally here! The temperatures are rising and the flowers are blooming. It’s also time to tackle your spring cleaning list. If you are a business owner, you understand how quickly things can pile up through the year. To help keep your office environment clean, efficient and professional, it’s important to do a major overhaul at least once or twice a year. Here are a few spring cleaning tips to help you get started:
- Is your business clean? Do you have a cleaning team that comes in on a regular basis? If your business is small, you may do the cleaning yourself or have someone assigned to the task. Make sure to consider Pilgrim Mats’ wide range of restroom and cleaning products to help you keep your restrooms in the best shape possible. It’s also a great time to consider investing in a mat rental program if you haven’t already. Studies show 70-80% of dirt and debris in a business comes in through the front door.
- Is your workspace efficient? Evaluate your daily needs in the office. Do you need a different set up to make your day easier? New equipment? Take this time to move your office furniture around to create a better flow. Make lists of the upgrades needed in the business and work out what fits in the budget for this year. If you dare, ask employees for their input of what they need to help them perform more efficiently.
- Files or paperweights? When is the last time you went through your files? If you have piles of file folders on your desk, it’s time to get to work! Plan a day or two where you can dig in and get those files organized. Not only will it make it easier for you to find the papers, forms, or receipts you need, you will finally have desk space again! If you are comfortable with the idea of going digital, you can have all of your important documents saved without the filing cabinets. Don’t forget to back up your back-ups!
- When is the last time you freshened up your online presence? Your workspace isn’t the only thing that needs a good spring-cleaning. If you haven’t touched your website or social media accounts in a while, you should make sure you go through and pull any old information and give them a good freshening up. New, vibrant graphics, up-to-date information, and working links are key for any business’s website. If you are not sure how to make these changes, or how to keep your social media accounts active, consider hiring a consultant to help you get these important online avenues up and running in a way that will generate traffic and revenue.
