Some of us may not be so fortunate to start off our 2016 resolutions on the right foot. Your plate may still be filled with things left-over from 2015. To get a fresh start on our productivity, there is the unofficial holiday, "Clean Off Your Desk Day."
Every 2nd Monday in January, Clean Off Your Desk Day serves as a yearly reminder to keep our workspace simplified and our priorities straightened to be able to address the important tasks.
Besides having productive benefits, keeping a neat and organized desk also limits the risk of a security breach. When tidying a desk, make sure to lock away any secure documents that may have sensitive information. Some companies mandate a Clean Desk Policy that enforces this practice on a routine basis and is usually part of the employee handbook.
Other benefits to keeping a clean desk :
Saves time in finding documents & papers.
Provides an excellent impression to other co-workers and bosses.
Also, if you have pets that sometimes like to climb on top of your workspace, the cleaning can help keep pet hair out of unwanted areas.
