MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Spring is here, which means office
workers across Canada are getting ready to roll up their sleeves and clear
workplace clutter. Not only does the annual chore slim storage cupboards and
deep-clean desk drawers, it forces companies to rethink admin processes and
best practices that ultimately benefit the bottom line. Here are a few tips
from Canon Canada on how to clear the clutter, cut costs and keep your
company's carbon footprint in check:
1. Think first, toss second: Look for opportunities to reuse and recycle.
Most imaging solution providers offer return programs for used toner
cartridges and old equipment.
2. Curb consumption: Cut energy costs by consolidating your fax machine,
scanner and printer into a single multifunction device. This cuts down
on counter space real estate and device maintenance.
3. Conserve resources: Schedule an annual tech tune-up as a part of your
spring cleaning routine to keep equipment running smoothly. Regular
service calls maximize product lifecycles, reduce down-time and
minimize environmental impact in the long run.
4. Scan and save: Reduce the need for filing cabinets by scanning old
documents and archiving digital versions instead. Saving soft-copy
files and storing backup disks improves organization, ensures
reliability and lowers storage fees.
5. Cleanse your corporate culture: Encourage lean-printing behaviour by
tracking needless colour and excessive printing. Use up-to-date
devices and implement company-wide printing policies to cut waste,
streamline employee usage and benefit the environment.
