3 Tips to Start the New Year in the Office Right

Happy New Year! A new year brings new possibilities, especially for our work lives and careers, and now is the time to make resolutions and evaluate your goals for 2019. Starting the new year with this list will help you be successful and can transform the way you work.

1. Evaluate/Change your Space

Start by evaluating your office space and if it accommodates your current task at hand. Intense focus work requires a more private area, while a communal space is perfect for the collaborative project. A change of surroundings can help anyone become more energized and improve productivity.

Start scouting a few locations in the office that support your current work and start using them on a daily basis.



2. Organize. Organize. Organize

Take the beginning of the year to clean out the clutter in your work space. Organize and file away past projects and keep all current files neatly and easily accessible to keep your productivity up.

This also pertains to digital files that may just sit on your desktop. Create a new folder or file away to existing folders to help you organize your projects.


3. Make the Office Feel like Home

Office furniture has come a long way and 'resimmercial' has brought the touches of home to make the office a more comfortable and desirable space where you want to work. Lounge chairs and sofas, biophilic design and personal items provides employees with a space that is welcoming and inspiring.
