What does your desk say about you??

What does your desk say about you??

ARE you a fan of potted plants, personal framed pictures and novelty mascots or do you prefer your desk to remain free of personal clutter?

Online office broker,┬áofficebroker.com, which works with 97% of the UK’s serviced office space providers and landlords, has joined forces with leading business psychologists Pearn Kandola to find out what your desk says about you. Is a messy desk the preserve of the creative genius or does creating your own ‘nest’ at work give a sense of belonging and settlement?

  • A person who displays targets or project charts is motivated by achievement and setting goals for themselves.
  • Those with pictures of family or friends and personal paraphernalia tend to be people focused and motivated by relationships inside and outside the work place.
  • Employees with screen savers or calendars depicting tropical beaches tend to be more hedonistic-are motivated by pleasure, perhaps preferring to meet clients over lunch.
  • People with ‘stylish’ desks, perhaps with an Apple Mac or stylish flowers or plants tend to be motivated by culture and the environment in which they work.
  • Desks without personal objects are often the preserve of the introvert-they might use files to create a barrier around themselves and their work.
  • Extroverts may have joke calendars or toys to draw people over to their work space and create a talking point.
  • A neat desk is a sign of a conscientious individual who is organised and prefers to focus on one thing at a time.
  • A more spontaneously organised desk shows someone who is good at multi tasking, can switch between different tasks, is flexible and creative in their approach to work.
