It’s National Clean Your Desk Day

A clean workspace creates organization and eliminates germs

January 13, 2020

Are you having trouble finding important papers and organizing your train of thought? Your messy desk may the culprit.

Today is National Clean Your Desk Day, the perfect opportunity to remove all those papers and other debris off the top of your workspace. A clear workspace will provide less distractions, helping you focus and have a more productive day.

According to the National Association of Professional Organizers, paper clutter is a problem for most businesses, with the average person wasting about 4 hours a week searching for papers and important documents, Salon Today reports. Consider modernizing your business by using software programs to manage your business calendar, customer database, budget, and other records. You will eliminate the need for a lot of paper and gain the advantage of software data pinpointing inefficiencies and finding workflow solutions for you.

Plus, exposing the surface of your desk will allow you to clean and disinfect it thoroughly, a good idea during flu season. A recent survey found many workers are dissatisfied with the cleanliness of their workplace, and only 35% reported that their desk was cleaned daily.

Regularly wiping down your desk and other high-touch surfaces in your workspace can help prevent some of the 2.8 million nonfatal workplace illnesses and injuries every year.
