Are you planning to hire a professional organizer to help get things organized at home or office? Or you are wondering what things you should keep in mind if you want to hire a professional organizer? We got you covered. On this page, we have three things to keep in mind when hiring a professional organizer.
Remember that you don't have to go through the organizing process alone. Our team at GITO can help you.
- Make sure your organizing personalities match
When hiring a professional organizer, you need a carbon copy of yourself. It would be best if you look for an organizer who will match your organizing style. For instance, you need help organizing files in your cabinet. You have a certain way you'd like the file to be organized. Maybe you like alphabetizing things by region, or color-coding things by urgency, but you can't figure out how you're going to achieve that, Organizer A might not be the right choice for you. In this case, Organizer B may be more flexible when it comes to helping you bring your own organizing style to life.
- Ask about their work style
You need to ask the organizer what an organizing session is like with their clients if you want to get a better idea about how they work. What's their work style? Do they work with assistants or alone? How do they structure their time? Do they work in blocks of long hours or do shorter organizing sessions? What are their specialties? Do they hold book sessions or preliminary consulting sessions with you and then get to work? How do they evaluate your project? Asking questions like these can give you a better idea of the organizer as to what to expect, should you decide to work with them.
- Don't be afraid to discuss fees
It will help if you take your time to discuss fees ahead of time when hiring a professional to work in your home or office. You should know ahead of time what services you will receive in exchange for payment. What are the organizer's fees? Do they charge by the hour, by the job, or by a project? What payment methods do they accept? What are their payment terms?
Don't be afraid to ask questions and get reliable answers if anything is unclear. You should consider taking your business elsewhere if you can't get a straight answer to your question. The key is to find someone who understands your goals and create a positive environment rather than a punitive atmosphere.
