Broken office furniture - it's just not cricket!

Apr 18, 2016

Ever been treated to that ‘file-it-yourself’ raised eyebrow when you’ve asked someone to tidy up some paperwork? It’s not great, is it? But let’s face it, if your staff have been complaining that the filing cabinet’s broken, you’re on a bit of sticky wicket.

Ever been treated to that ‘file-it-yourself’ raised eyebrow when you’ve asked someone to tidy up some paperwork? It’s not great, is it? But let’s face it, if your staff have been complaining that the filing cabinet’s broken, you’re on a bit of sticky wicket. Both you and they know that you’ve just been fielding their complaints, and now you’re on a back footing...

Keeping your business organised
As a business owner, the reality is if the tools you’ve provided are actually making your employees inefficient, then you’re the only person who’s heading towards being out for a duck. It might seem like just a few bits of office furniture to you, but if you think in terms of productivity, you’ll soon realise it’s actually costing you to NOT replace them. Perhaps it’s time to accept that they’ve had a good innings and now need to retire.

How can you check your current office furniture?
So, with that said, what kind of office furniture problems could be holding your staff back from being the slick fast bowlers they want to be? Well, here are just a few things for that may be putting them in a spin…

Filing cabinets – Are the drawers running smoothly? Do they open like crease lightening, or are they so awkward that the filing is actually piling up because no one can face the hassle of the battle? Are people now wasting time looking for information, when it could and should have been filed neatly away?
Desk pedestals – Similar idea… Are the drawers opening smoothly? Are the locks still working? Are some stuck shut?! For some, that’s a ‘rain stops play’…
Desk chairs – Are they still strong and firm? Is the height adjustment mechanism working? Or, are some members of staff finding themselves having to get up and walk around a bit because they are uncomfortable? If the answer to that last question is ‘yes’, then you may have turned your employees into dibbly dobblers… (Legit cricketing term, promise!).
Office desks – Has your IT infrastructure grown so much that you’re now seeing cables everywhere? Is your ‘corridor of uncertainty’ interrupting the work flow? Worse still, is it actually a trip hazard? It’s worth a check.
Office screens – Are those office screens actually hiding a multitude of sins? This may be your equivalent of cow corner, but wouldn’t it be better to review your office storage solutions and get all that ‘stuff’ put neatly away so it’s easy to find in the future?
Office cupboards – Further to the point above… do you actually need more? Perhaps some additional storage with lockable tambour doors will help you give this mess the slip? Even a cricket pavilion deserves a few good lockers…
