Must have Office Accessories for your Work Space

How can office accessories and stationery improve your office efficiency and productivity?

The average human works a total of 39.2 hours per week. Multiply that by 47 weeks, excluding leave, public holidays and weekends; this equals a total of 1842 hours per year. Now, according to reports, the average human working lifespan is up until the age of 67 years, which means that you've worked a total of 92 120 hours in your entire lifetime.

Those numbers are quite eye-opening. People spend most of their time in the office and in some cases the environment can become dull, which means unhappy staff and a lack of efficiency and production. It’s crucial that this does not happen, as it will not only affect the employee's mental state but also impact the business.

To prevent this, make sure that the working environment is pleasant by providing office accessories that make it a little easier and comfortable. It can be as simple as an organiser to organise essential documents to additional side furniture. These all effect employees and it is also a representation of the company’s image.
