Office uncleanliness steals workplace of joy and focus by drawing your attention away from what your focus should be on, according to Dr. Sherrie Bourg Carter of Psychology Today. A cluttered desk, for example, hinders an employee from immediately finding needed office items like staples, paper cups, and important documents. Spending time looking for an office item may frustrate employees with their work, distract them from their current task, or cause delay, affecting their overall work progress. Dr. Carter furthered that desk clutter even deprives the mind of creativity, which can cause artist’s block to people working in advertising, graphic designing, and companies offering creative services.
