A Tale of An Inefficient Workplace

Employee A arrives at work and immediately feels a familiar sense of dread. She sits down at her cubicle and promptly begins checking messages in her company email account. She comes across a message from her supervisor requesting that she print several documents and prepare them for the late morning department meeting. As Employee A proceeds to the printer to pick up the documents, the printer chimes to signal an empty paper tray. Employee A redirects her path to the storage closet on the other side of the office where the printer paper is stored. Upon retrieving more paper, Employee A hears the phone on her desk ring. She returns to her desk, recognizes the number as that of her supervisor and answers. Her supervisor asks whether Employee A has seen another email referencing a spreadsheet she has been tasked to create by noon. Employee A jots down a few notes regarding edits she will need to make to the spreadsheet’s layout and dutifully returns to the print station to refill the paper and to finally retrieve her documents. After returning to her desk with documents in hand, Employee A reaches for her stapler and discovers it has run out of staples. She sighs and returns to the supply closet, located across the office, and realizes she is only 15 minutes into her workday and is already beginning to feel exhausted. Employee A repeats a similar sequence of events several times for the next seven hours.

Disorganization Contributes to Fatigue

Many employees find themselves experiencing fatigue, not solely due to the extent of their workload, but also as a result of attempting to work efficiently in a disorganized setting. Overcrowded file drawers, illogical layouts, and the hunt for misplaced supplies can add up to a non-obvious losses in productivity as employees must divert their time and energy to secondary tasks.

Maintaining an Organized Workplace Improves Productivity

A professional organizer who specializes in office settings can help businesses identify these “productivity vampires” and recommend solution to make the workday less taxing and more efficient for workers. By working with a professional to identify and address pain points, companies may significantly reduce worker fatigue and enable their employees to focus more of their time and energy on performing essential job duties.

What is Professional Organizing?

Rolanda L., Professional Organizer shows clients how to tame clutter and regain control of their homes and workplaces.

Simply stated, professional organizing is a process through which a system is put in place to help individuals and businesses become more orderly. It is one of many very effective ways to improve quality of life and boost productivity.

What is the Rolanda L. Method?

Disorganization is typically a symptom of a larger disruption in an individual’s life. Sometimes the cause of the disruption may be minor and temporary like moving to a new residence or redecorating. In other cases, disorganization may have a root cause that is very chronic and persistent. Regardless the cause of a disorganized home or office, Rolanda L, Professional Organizer seeks to address each individual situation at its origin and to design and implement solutions that will ultimately set the client up for continued success. The Rolanda L. Method is a holistic approach to organizing!

What Can Be Organized (…Professionally)?

Closets, cabinets, shelves, paperwork, filing systems, you name it! Rolanda L. is also available to assist with furniture selection, room layout, and color coordination. Our clients also love our specialized relocation packing service, which makes moving to a new home or office much more efficient and generally more secure. Having a highly detail-oriented professional organizer handle packing during a move makes the entire process much faster and easier from start to finish.

But I Always Seem to Find Myself Needing to Reorganize… 

Solution: Work with a professional organizer to implement a system and/or layout that works well with your lifestyle and behavioral habits…We happen to know one if you’re interested!

If you are unable to work with an organizer, simply take inventory of your daily routine (even if it is somewhat erratic), and ask yourself if you have designed your home and everything in it in a way that supports you in achieving your daily objectives. If the answer is no, walk through each aspect of an average day in your life, ask yourself what could be improved to increase efficiency and peace of mind. Then modify your environment accordingly. Keeping a journal of observations and changes may be helpful.

Hiring a Professional to Pack for Your Move

While most households instinctively call a moving company to transport their furniture, clothing, and housewares during relocation, many people are unaware of the time, expense, and stress they may be able to save by hiring a professional to pack their belongings prior to the move. Rolanda L. offers specialized packing before moving and unpacking upon arrival at the new location.

How a Packing Session Works

Planning ahead greatly enhances the likelihood of achieving a smooth, low-stress move. Generally, my first step is to take a look at the client’s home and the items that will need to be packed. If requested, I provide guidance and recommendations for packing supplies and moving box sizes and quantities in advance of the actual packing session. After assessing the client’s desired timeline and goals, the packing can begin.

Rolanda L. vs. The Moving Company

Several moving companies also offer packing service. While it may be tempting to allow the transportation company to also handle packing, there are a few things clients should consider before making a decision with their dollars. First, moving companies generally specialize in loading, unloading, and transporting boxes and large items. Smaller, more delicate wares will likely require handling with a more delicate touch. This is especially true of high value artwork and heirlooms. When moving a very unique, expensive item, such as a high-end piano, I typically suggest contacting a separate service provider who specializes in securing and moving the particular item in question. In addition to requiring more attention to detail, the task of packing requires organization. Oftentimes, boxes that have been packed by moving companies are mislabeled, or they may contain items that should not necessarily be packed together. However, Rolanda L. is able to strategically pack and label housewares and clothing, not only to minimize damage, but also to make unpacking and getting settled a virtual walk in the park.

Save Time and Energy

Most people have work and family responsibilities. Finding time to pack for an upcoming move may seem virtually impossible. Enlisting the help of a professional can reduce the amount of disruption moving inevitably has on a person’s daily routine. Parents are able to be more attentive to their family’s needs, and busy professionals are better able to keep up with work responsibilities.
