The third step can involve the following. Paper purging is a laborious task. Always have cautioned of the important papers. In this process, one has to thoroughly go through all the papers and take control of the clutter. After clearing the clutter, file all the papers in a color-coded system so that it is easy to find that particular file that is required. Allot different spaces for these files in the closet and label those sections. Even this makes finding files easier.

Only have all the necessary equipment in the office like printers, fax machines, etc. Remove the unnecessary clutter. Organizing a desktop includes, organizing the mails, the files, etc. Zoning the office can be vaguely described as dividing the office into areas like work stations for work, a playroom for refreshment, a cafeteria for food and beverages, a playground in the outside, etc. To receive emails, the office needs to have a mail station. Setup a mail station so as to have incoming emails, outgoing emails, emails with packages, mails without packages, whatever that makes it easy to segregate.

For the betterment of the employees and, for the outlook of the office, one can go for creating clubs in the office and sponsoring the clubs, cheering the employees to follow their interests. There could always be an art club, a cultural club, a social service club, and so many more clubs.

With the fast-growing world, there are more emails than conventional mails. One should always segregate and store these messages in the databases in a clear labeled order. This task can be done with people who have the skills to do so. Leaving this job in unprofessional hands can be a catastrophic because few emails have the bank statements and invoices, which are very important. Other than emails, there are documents in desktops that require setting up separate folders to be found easily. Always have passwords and hack-proof applications for the safety of the files.
