A tidy desk means a tidy mind. Or at least that’s what a majority of office workers think.

Almost 60 percent of US office workers judge their colleagues on how clean their desk is, according to a poll commissioned by temp agency Adecco. And almost half admitted they would look on someone negatively if their desk or cubicle was a mess.

A third saw a cluttered workspace as a sign of laziness and 43 percent saw it as evidence that a worker is too busy.

Over a quarter of those who considered their own desks to be tidy thought they should get a bonus for keeping the office clean.
