Many of us may think we’re disorganised in various ways but if we knew the actual cost of this, would we spend more time trying to rectify it? Not only would it make us feel less stressed, it would mean increased productivity and essentially time means money!
keyorganization.com gives a synopsis of the cost of disorganisation in business below which makes interesting reading:
A. 73% of managers and associates say they form impressions of co-workers by the way their desks are organised. Disorganised desks do not indicate you are ready for additional responsibilities. There is a lot of competition now, so do not handicap your chances of securing more business.
B. Nearly 70% of workers believe that colleagues with messy desks are less career driven than their counterparts. Can you afford to allow that perception in an uncertain economic climate?
A. Office distractions eat up 2.1 hours per day for the average worker. How much more could you produce if you had 2 extra focused hours of work each day?
B. Once interrupted, it takes 25 minutes to get back into the flow of the original task. Although many think they will get more done by multitasking, you are actually less effective than when concentrating on one thing before switching to another.
