Studies show that a tidy office environment is a more productive office. It is very much like when you clean and detail your car it is more comfortable and seems to drive better! There was an interesting study by Harvard University, involving the productivity of students tasked with working in environments of varying levels of clutter. The study found students who worked in a clean clutter-free workspace were able to work steadily for 7.5 minutes longer than the students attempting the task in a cluttered workspace. The study concluded that an untidy workspace can “undermine people’s persistence in completing tasks.”
There are also health benefits to a clean office. When desks and work surfaces are left unclean, viruses can linger on the likes of telephones and keyboards for 24 hours. It is believed that an unhygienic office is the root cause of at least some of the nine working days the average employee loses due to being sick every year.
