Preparing for the Hybrid Work Model & Decluttering Your Office

If you’re returning to the office and transitioning to a hybrid work model, decluttering your workspace is one of the most effective ways to prepare your team for success. COVID-19 sparked the potential for a hybrid work environment, causing employers to scramble to adopt new in-office and remote work routines. 123JUNK proudly works with Northern VA businesses by providing professional junk removal so their teams can work in an optimal environment. 

If you need assistance decluttering your workspace, allow 123JUNK to help! Using our 1-2-3 Process, we will be able to determine which items can be donated, recycled, or properly disposed of. We partner with local charities throughout the DC Metro area to donate gently used unwanted items to families in need. 

Below, we discuss hybrid work and how your business can easily adapt to the new changes.

What is Hybrid Work? 

Hybrid work is often described as a more flexible work schedule and environment with varying levels of remote work and in-office work. There are a number of hybrid work models that businesses are tailoring to ensure the highest level of productivity and work-life balance for their employees. Whichever type your team has agreed on, make sure that everyone is aware and prepared for the changes. 

4 Steps to Adopting a Hybrid Work Model

  1. Declutter
    As employers are still navigating the best way to implement hybrid work, many may find that their current office space needs to be decluttered and re-envisioned  to create a workspace that’s focused on safety.

    Our local junk removal team can help haul away any unwanted desks or items your company no longer needs. You can trust us to thoughtfully donate, recycle, or dispose of them so you can focus on preparing your team for their new work routine. 

    Figuring out where and how to get rid of your junk can be a time-consuming challenge, especially during an office transition. However, we make the entire process easy with fast pickup and thoughtful disposal services.
  1. Reorganize
    After decluttering your space, the next step is to decide how your hybrid workspace will operate, especially when your employees do come into the office. Consider collaborating with your team on determining what the best office layout will look like.

    Some companies may choose to start “hot-desking” or having shared workstations on a “first come, first served” basis. Others might opt for having a few teams to rotate their designated workstations in a more structured way to maintain productivity.

  2. Set Expectations
    It’s crucial to stay connected with your team. With a more flexible hybrid schedule, it might become a little challenging. Be sure to set expectations regarding new policies and procedures for in-office and remote work, team member schedules, meetings and more with your team upfront.

  3. Communicate
    It’s important to stay on the same page with your team on a daily basis so nothing falls through the cracks. Ensure your employees have everything they need to get their tasks done—whether they’re in the office or at home.

    Also, have one primary mode of communication where employees can check updates frequently. Some companies have daily meetings as well as shared access to necessary files to prevent lack of communication or miscommunication.

  1. More Convenient

Consider how long it will take to clear out, unload, haul, and dispose of your unwanted items. For many people, this can take hours and even days. With the help of your local junk removal company, you can spend more time doing things you enjoy while they take care of your project from start to finish!

  1. Safe and Healthy

There are some items that are too dangerous or hazardous to deal with on your own. You could seriously injure yourself without the proper knowledge or equipment readily available. 

Professional junk haulers have the training and experience to dispose of unwanted items and waste properly and legally while adhering to federal and state guidelines, as well as the CDC’s guidelines. 

  1. Major Cost Savings

Hauling your junk isn’t as simple as it seems. There’s a variety of factors to consider such as gas, mileage, dumping fees, and renting trucks. Using your personal vehicles can also pave way for additional issues, including unnecessary damages and costs.

  1. Reliable and Efficient

Junk removal involves much more than just hauling items away in the back of a truck. Knowing what can be properly disposed of or recycled is a not only cost-efficient but better for the environment. Not to mention, your well-loved items can potentially be someone else’s treasure. 

Consider junk removal experts who utilize an efficient junk hauling process, like 123JUNK’s 1-2-3 Process of donating, recycling, and disposing.
