Office supplies and accessories are extremely essential for all companies because, according to many employees, they enhance their work-life and productivity. Some office accessories aren’t essential for work reasons, but definitely enhance the life of the employee. According to recent research, the average office worker spends about 99,200 hours at work during his or her lifetime – which is the equivalent of nearly twelve years of solid desk time! The office is, for many, their second home. So why not make this second home cosy, comfortable, inspiring and fun? Here are some examples to make your office brighter.
Stress balls have been used for a long time by people as the quickest and easiest way to relieve tension. When we put ourselves under a lot of strain, our bodies have a habit of tensing up. Releasing that strain through squeezing benefits you in the long run. Whoever thought that a squidgy ball could have that effect?
These were very popular in the 1980s, and, although the metal balls swinging from left to right in a row may seem at first an annoying desk toy – the action of the swinging gives a calming aura – and can be quite therapeutic indeed. Just watching it can help you to de-stress. It can also distract you from any building stress in the workplace.
Desktop Punching Bag
How many times have clients, colleagues or even friends and family annoyed you and ruined your workday? Or maybe just having a bad day in the office gives you pent up anger? This is the perfect desk accessory to combat anger and frustration. Imagine the punch bag is a particularly difficult client – give it a whack! It’ll make you feel immediately de-stressed.
Comfy Seating Area
We now spend an enormous amount of time sitting in an upright chair looking at a computer. It’s sometimes nice to collapse into a comfy sofa with a cup of tea and a biscuit. Clients may also prefer this slightly more casual idea to sit for a meeting. It’ll definitely make the office look brighter!
These don’t have to be tacky OR funny. Just words of wisdom to remind you why you enjoy your job and to tell you that YES you ARE doing a good job will immediately make employees, at whatever level, feel appreciated. It’ll put a smile on visitors’ faces too.
