Clean Off Your Desk Day
09:00, Tuesday, 9 January 2018
To honour an uncluttered, organised and clean workspace, the second Monday of January is celebrated as the Clean Off Your Desk Day.
Productivity experts and scientists agree that a functional workspace is important for having a fulfilling and productive work life. Clean and organised work desks allow workers to focus and to organise and process information. In addition, research shows that those who work within cluttered spaces tend to get frustrated faster than those whose workspaces are organised and clean.
How to Celebrate?
Clean your desk, of course! Take a few hours to organise all the paperwork that has piled up over the last year and to purge your desk and workspace of things you have no use for anymore.
Shred any paperwork with any sensitive or personal information, give away duplicate office supplies, and file away important documents.
And while you are at it, organise your PC, or laptop desktop as well.
