An unclean and disorganized office contribute to work-related stress. According to Dr. Carter, sights of untidiness can bombard human minds with stimuli that are not necessary or important, causing senses to work overtime, preventing both mental and physical relaxation. Dr. Carter added, that sights of desk and office clutter constantly tell the brain that work is not yet done, making your employees anxious.
Employees suffering from stress are less likely to be productive and tend to have lower engagement and focus in their work. Burnout employees are also more prone to absences and lack of work motivation compare to those who are not experiencing a lot of stress.
