Keep your desk and your career well organized for success

A messy desk doesn’t just slow down your ability to find things—it can impede your career development.

A survey of HR executives by OfficeTeam found that more than 8 in 10 said an untidy workspace influences their view of that employee’s professionalism. Peter Walsh, of Peter Walsh Design in Sherman Oaks, Calif., says that almost 49 percent of your co-workers wonder about your abilities if you’re not capable of keeping your desk clean.  

With that in mind, try these tips for keeping your working area neat and efficient:  

  • Create “zones.” Don’t just toss documents, books, supplies, etc., across your desk. Designate specific areas for particular items: progress reports in one corner, mail in another, staplers and paperclips in your top drawer, and so forth. This will make finding things quicker and easier.

 

  • Clean up regularly. Before lunch, and right before you go home, spend a few minutes sorting your desk. File what you need, discard what you don’t, and straighten everything up so it’s waiting in the right location when you return.

 

  • Respond promptly. Resist the urge to set stuff aside for an indeterminate “later.” Make a point of filing, discarding, or acting on items right away so they don’t pile up and become overwhelming to contemplate.
