The importance of effective office storage

Published on 01/11/2016

It’s objects like desks and chairs that really stand out in working spaces. These items of office furniture are the most conspicuous. However, it’s really important that you don’t neglect effective storage products. While they might not be as immediately obvious, they can be highly conspicuous by their absence.

If your office lacks the right lockers, shelves, cabinets and so on, your office will quickly get messy and this can cause a whole range of problems.

Health and safety

Firstly, untidy offices can be dangerous. Even in the most seemingly unthreatening environments, accidents can happen. Every day in the UK, workers suffer slips and trips and, in some cases, these can be dangerous.

By simply making sure there are appropriate spaces where personnel can store paperwork, files, books and other items, you can minimise the risk of incidents like this occurring. 


Chaotic working spaces can dramatically increase stress levels among your employees. If workers are surrounded by mess and find it hard to locate the items they need, the can really start to feel the pressure.

It’s a well-known fact that excessive stress levels have a negative impact on people’s ability to function. This means that as well as making individuals’ lives harder than they need to be, untidy offices can reduce productivity. Ultimately, this is bad news for your bottom line.

Recruitment and retention

Being able to enjoy a neat and ordered working environment may not be top of most people’s list of priorities when they’re hunting for jobs, but it does have an impact. If you’re office doesn’t feature the right contemporary office furniture, you could find it harder to recruit and retain the best personnel.

As the hard work and skill of your employees is crucial for the long-term success of your organisation, this is an issue you need to take seriously.
