When to Hire a Professional

benefits of hiring a professional organizerI’ve recently had several conversations about the circumstances for hiring a professional organizer and found that Jessika Toothman’s article answers most of the big questions; what a professional offers, why the need, and how you would profit from their services.

At the very end of the article Jessika notes that she did not even know that professional organizing was a career but after researching this article she found that many people could benefit from the services an organizer offers.

Check out some of the benefits she lists …

{Benefits at Home}

Professional organizers can help around the home in loads of ways. They can:

  • Tackle a closet packed to the brim with questionable clothing ensembles and an army of shoes, restocking it in a way that makes sense
  • Address a playroom littered with toys that never seem to find the appropriate storage nooks and crannies
  • Assist with paperwork pileups scattered across desks, whether that’s a heap of unsorted bills, daunting tax forms or complicated estate planning
  • Wrangle a client’s electronic life down to a more manageable level
  • Attack a jam-packed attic, basement or garage
  • Help out in life-changing situations like a downsized home, a big move or a merging of households

{Benefits at Work}

“Some professional organizers focus on helping in the business environment.

  • They might address time management, goal setting and other workflow issues. They could help employees with file management — both physical and electronic — or
  • they might address space design complications. But basically, it’s similar to the residential organizer’s two-prong approach:
  • assisting employees with addressing specific and immediate issues, and training them to be more efficient and organized in the future.

Sometimes, office organizers can be hired to help an entire department or company. If you notice your employees seem to have trouble meeting their deadlines or prioritizing their workloads, but you believe they’re still quality workers who could simply benefit from a little additional on-the-job training, you might want to consider hiring a professional organizer to shore up their skills and get them back on track.”

Now is the perfect time to reflect on this past year and how you or your company might benefit from a fresh start in the new year. To find out more please feel free to comment below.
