The start of Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to do some spring cleaning for your small business. From tossing out the old and investing in new products to spending more time outside, we've compiled a list of springtime essentials to ensure you and your small business are set up for success.
A Digital Refresh
A great rule of thumb is to conduct regular digital maintenance at least once a quarter to ensure that your business is running smoothly and that customers are getting the most out of your online store. But don’t stop there! Spring is also a fantastic time to restock on all your digital must-haves and electronic equipment that help your business run smoother. One of our personal favorites is the Fellowes Powershred® 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder
Celebrate with Spring-Themed Products and Plants
Spring is a time of renewal and celebration! Upgrade your current office products by investing in some spring-themed items to help spread the cheer and welcome in the sunny season. A great option to consider is the Blue Sky Joselyn Weekly/Monthly Planner.
Plants are also a great way to introduce new life and energy into your workspace during the Spring. If you don’t have a green thumb, have no fear! There are plenty of low-maintenance plants that make sense for a workspace, such as Peace Lillies which don’t require lots of natural light, or Orchids which don’t require regular watering.
Hold Outdoor Meetings
It can be hard to sit in an office space while the sun is shining outside. Rather than fighting the urge to daydream, consider switching up your daily routine by holding outdoor meetings.
Whether you join virtually from your backyard or conduct walking meetings outside the office with your colleagues, getting out of your traditional workspace and spending time outside can help to spark creativity, boost employee happiness, and leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.
