Fans of the NBC’s hit comedy show “The Office” who actually work in an office will probably recognize many of the characters as reflections of their own coworkers. Every office has that one special person who likes to plan the parties and that feels unappreciated. There’s also the office joker who is happy to waste your time telling you silly jokes or doing bad impressions of celebrities. And yes every office has their very own “Dwight” which is that one worker who gets the job done but just doesn’t seem to be all there. Of course we’d all love to have a boss like Michael Scott who cares more about having fun in the office that actually doing work in the office.
Like it or not we are pretty much stuck with our office coworkers. Unlike our friends we can pick and choose to hang out with, we are going to be spending the bulk of our week with these coworkers. If they annoy us there is not much we can do about it. That doesn’t mean we can’t make the office space a bit more tolerable. Sometimes just the well-equipped break room makes all the difference between a depressive environment and a happy one. Those offices that seem to bond together things like bowling league softball teams are the ones that make going to work every day a pleasurable experience.
Then there is the question of the actual office space itself. What shape is your office in? Are you embarrassed to have friends or family come over to see where you work? Is it because of all the clutter and junk that is stacked to the rafters your office? If so maybe it’s time to give the once over to your office space.
First step is to get rid of all the garbage taking up space in your offices. We’re not talking about the pizza boxes left over from last Friday’s lunch. Instead we’re talking about all those big items that are taking up space in cubicles and closets. This would be all that junk that everyone in the office forgets about until they go looking for something in that closet and can’t find it. Usually this search expedition is followed up with the question “why are we throwing any of this stuff out?” The answer that question can be found in a matter of responsibility. In other words nobody wants to take charge of the junk. You have the opportunity to show your boss that you have the initiative and clean out the clutter by hiring a professional team of junk haulers like Junk King Kansas City.
On the appointed day, the junk haulers will show up with plenty of muscle and truck space to take away all your unwanted file boxes, office equipment and furniture. This is a good chance to take a complete inventory on everything in your office to make sure it is still serving its purpose. Once that junk is gone you could step up to the boss and ask “what’s next?”
