Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Small Business

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Small Business

by Proforma Construction Inc, March 30, 2017

Spring is the time of year in which everyone from across the nation buckles down and thoroughly cleans to the point of perfection. 

If the first signs of spring have you cleaning out your storage closet and wiping away layers of dust, why not apply this productivity to your business? Your business gets just as messy and dusty as your home, so applying time to clean your business could pay off. Here are a few spring cleaning tips to help your business move forward.

  1. Clean Your Email Inbox – How many unread emails do you still have pending in your inbox because you “might need them someday”? It is difficult to decipher what is trash and what is treasure, so take 15 to 20 minutes and really sift through your email and place emails into the appropriate folders.
  2. Declutter Your Filing Cabinet and Use the Cloud – Your filing cabinet is likely filled with papers you have hardly thought about in years. Take the time to declutter and recycle any old papers you no longer require, and set up a cloud storage system for any future documents. It is much easier to organize your paperwork when there is no actual paper to file.
  3. Spring Forward – Now that your business feels nice and fresh, hold a meeting for your employees. This meeting should engage your employees and get them excited for the rest of the year.

Spring is a great reminder for all of us to get organized and energized for the coming year, but it is also a great idea to practice these organizational techniques throughout the year in order to remain productive and execute another great year.
