Small Business Organiser

Through planning, commitment and consistency being organised becomes a supportive business tool leading to more productivity and more fulfilling work. By setting up the right foundations, businesses can achieve and give more.

Why stop and get organised?

An organised home office or small business, will run more productively and efficiently if you have the right systems in place, things are filed correctly and it flows well. Despite what some people may say, a clear desk is a good desk. Good systems and healthy organising mean that you won’t waste any more time trying to find that missing file or document. By investing in Small Business Organising you’re able to concentrate on the essential elements of your work rather than worrying about unnecessary elements that affect a vast majority of the community. ⠀⠀

What’s wrong with clutter anyway?

  • Clutter is excessively stimulating to our brains
  • Clutter constantly signals to our brains that our work is never done
  • Clutter creates feelings of guilt (“I should be more organised”) and embarrassed (“Oh! I hope they don’t come into my office!”)
  • Clutter limits our creativity and productivity by filling up the white spaces that allow us to think, brain storm, and problem solve
  • Clutter frustrates us by preventing us from locating what we need quickly (e.g. files and paperwork lost in piles or phones and keys left somewhere).

“Show me the office, and I can tell you the state of the business.”

What help is there?

What flor&order does is help people get organised so that they can make the most of their time and resources. Whether working from home or working in an office, sometimes a work-space can become a productivity nightmare.

A common thread is that people feel that they are spending more time looking for documents, supplies, and email rather than working. Investing in getting back on track is a good sign that someone is serious about their business health and address ing the problems at their root cause is a sure way to ensure that changes are long lasting.

 

We do this:

  • By purging the Workspace;
  • By rearranging the Office;
  • By organising the Desktop;
  • By fleshing out the Filing System;
  • and by Working on Time Management.

Working side by side, work-spaces are improved and organised, clients have time to reflect and weed out non-essentials, and as a result essential work-life balance is achieved.

Another common complaint that I hear is putting off filing. I get it, it’s not something that people commonly love. And it is a very deceptive task. Due to the time it takes to look each piece of paper over, one pile can take more time to go through than the rest of the space put together.  Working with a client recently, we cleared the decks by sorting papers one by one into read, file, or shred piles. Luckily, the shred pile was by far the largest and my client is now working on making it routine to keep on top of their filing.

Six sign that a small business is successful

(and no, it’s not about how many Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook followers you have):

  1. The office runs smoothly and effectively
  2. Processes are streamlined for effective time-management
  3. The filing system and storage solutions are effective and well maintained
  4. Staff are inspired, well trained and have access to ongoing training so they can operate efficiently
  5. Money and time are not wasted
  6. Working ON the business is possible (have the time to pursue those marketing strategies and online events you’ve been dreaming about creating)

Working with a small business organiser may explore:

  1. Set up/improve physical space to maximise space and improve workflow and productivity so clients have a great first impression
  2. Declutter and implement effective paperwork and digital file systems
  3. Establish routines for improving productivity and workflow
  4. Manage incoming and outgoing mail (physical and digital)
  5. Sort and organise stock supplies (stationery or product)
  6. Implementing self-care in business
  7. Team approach – working one on one with team members so everyone can love the space that they work in

I don’t want everyone watching…

Flexible working hours are offered so people can reach their organised potential at times when they feel most comfortable. Weekends and outside of traditional work hours are usually when people request bookings as it gives them privacy and the ability to focus on the task at hand without the fear of interruption.

A healthy check after 6 months is also included to ensure that changes are being maintained.
