What to Keep on your Desk

What to Keep on your Desk

Alliance Cleaning Advice

Whether you’re working from home or going into the office, you will most likely be spending a large amount of time sitting at your desk working hard (or hardly working!). Ensuring your desk is organised and has everything you need for maximum productivity is key to allowing your day to run as smoothly as possible.

Here at Alliance Cleaning, we work within office environments every day, ensuring they are kept as clean and hygienic as possible with our daily office cleaning services, and there’s nothing we like more than seeing a clean and organised desk!

We have put together our top 5 suggestions for what to keep on your desk at home or in the office:

1. A desk planner / calendar

You may already use an online calendar to organise your day, but it’s always useful having a physical calendar or planner in front of you at all times. Having quick access to a desk planner enables you to quickly be able to write down any appointments, calls, phone numbers or other important information you may be told about on the phone or an email. Post-it notes can also be very useful for those urgent reminders that you need to ‘jot’ down, and of course always ensure you have a few pens available!

2. Screen and Desk Wipes

Did you know that the average office desk contains 400 times more germs than a toilet seat?! It’s not the nicest of thoughts, but there’s plenty of ways you can keep your desk as clean and hygienic as possible. Keeping some desk and screen wipes close by allows you to clean your desk regularly and stops any germs or bacteria from spreading. Our daily office cleaning services ensure that all desks are cleaned to the highest level and means you don’t have to worry about cleaning your desk throughout the day.

3. Hand Sanitiser

The last year has seen the world go ‘hygiene crazy’ and hand sanitiser has been one of the most important items to carry around with you at all times. Having hand sanitiser available at your desk can ensure you’re not holding onto any germs and allows you to quickly and easily keep your hands hygienic if you’ve been out at lunchtime.

4. Personal Pictures

Sitting at your desk all day can get tiresome and dependent on your industry, you may have days that feel very stressful. Personalising your desk with family photos, drawings from your children or even personal possessions can help cheer you up when you most need it! Small items like this can give you a boost if things aren’t going well!

5. Phone Cable

It’s happened to all of us. You forget to charge your phone overnight, and then just when you need to make that important call or send a message to someone, the battery on your phone dies. By having a phone charger close to your desk at all times, you can be sure that this problem never happens to you so that your day can run smoothly.

Now you know what to keep on your desk, you can go and smash the day!
