Turn your file room into a break room
The number one issue that organizations have with paper is the space it consumes. Converting your files to digital images eliminates this and a litany of other problems that comes with being a paper-based business.
What would you do with the reclaimed space?
I am all in on a break room. Adding a pool table and a few arcade games adds a fun element to your office and breaks up the monotony associated with being in an office for hours on end. Sifting through filing cabinets does exactly the opposite. While pool tables and arcade games aren’t every office’s cup of tea, you get the gist: newly reclaimed office space can be turned into something fun or useful.
What problems are mitigated by firing your file room?
No more lost documents
If you ever want a free second to play a game of 9-ball, you need to find more efficient ways to get work done. Having your files scanned and easily accessible skyrockets productivity. Employees can find what they need without sending out a search party. Once a document goes MIA, you can lose hours tracking it down.
Customer service slow downs
Slow customer service is bad customer service. We have all been on the phone with customer service departments that were painfully slow. While you are on hold and having your ears massacred by Kenny G for three straight songs, they are searching for information that should be readily available.
The same goes for counter service. When someone takes time out of their day to visit your office, the last thing they want to do is wait for your office personnel to go on a scavenger hunt.
Office feng shui
According to dictionary.com, feng shui is an ancient Chinese belief that the way your house is built or the way that you arrange objects affects your success, health, and happiness. Do rows of filing cabinets create a vibrant and successful aura in your office? You already spend countless hours in your office. Getting rid of paper can do wonders for the ‘feel’ of your office, and ultimately lead to greater success and happiness as a business.
