Nine Office Must Haves To Improve Your Employee’s Working Space

Following a long stint of hybrid working, one-half of UK employees are back in the office full-time. In this blog, we’ve highlighted nine office must-haves they’ll need to improve their working space.
Office must haves for productive work

As an employer, it’s up to you to create a workspace that keeps morale high in the office. After all, every employee should have access to the appropriate tools they need to complete their tasks.

From ergonomic chairs to filtered water dispensers, here’s our office must haves for supporting productive and creative work.

Organisational Tools

Ever heard of the saying ‘tidy space, tidy mind’? When your colleagues’ desks are cluttered, they’re likely to feel overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. But organisational tools can help them maintain a tidy workspace.

Filing cabinets, desk organisers and project management software will support your employees in keeping track of their projects and deadlines. As a result, they can approach each task with confidence, productivity and reduced stress.

 

Ergonomic Office Chair

Did you know that 65% of office workers suffer from desk-related pain? If you want to prevent your employees from developing issues with their posture, it’s time to invest in ergonomic furniture. Built to reduce strain on the body, ergonomic chairs help prevent back pain, neck stiffness and other discomforts associated with prolonged sitting. 

They often feature lumbar support, armrests and seat height adjustments so that your employees can customise their comfort.

 

Premium Bean To Cup Coffee Machine

Coffee is the lifeblood of many office workers. Consumed by up to 70% of us every day, it’s no wonder that a premium bean-to-cup coffee machine is considered another must-have for the office.

With its ability to deliver freshly brewed coffee on demand, it can fuel productivity and enhance your workplace culture. And, more than that, it demonstrates your commitment to the wellbeing and satisfaction of your employees. After all, a well-caffeinated workplace is a productive one.

Healthy snack options at work

Healthy Snack Options

In the workplace, convenience is key. When your employees are hungry, they’ll often turn to crisps or chocolate for a quick sugar fix. But if you’ve already stocked the office break room with nutritious alternatives, you can empower your team to make healthier choices throughout the day.

These snacks not only provide essential nutrients and energy, but also help sustain concentration and focus between meals. Plus, in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis, your employees will appreciate the gesture of affordable and accessible options.

 

Laptop Stand & Monitor

Like ergonomic furniture, laptop stands play a crucial role in improving your employees’ posture. An office must-have, these stands elevate the laptop screen to eye level, reducing strain on the neck, shoulders and back. 

When combined with an additional monitor, they create a flexible and ergonomic workstation setup. This setup not only promotes better multitasking, but also ensures comfort and boosts productivity.

 

Filtered Water Taps & Coolers

Be honest, we’ve all been guilty of eating over our desks! Keyboards can harbor a surprising amount of germs, crumbs and bacteria, especially in a shared office environment. But keyboard covers are an inexpensive and effective way to keep the keys clean and hygienic. 

They can be replaced easily, and washed regularly to maintain a sanitary work environment.

Plants & Succulents 

Adding plants and succulents to your office space is more than just a decorative touch – it’s an investment in employee wellbeing and productivity. Our green friends improve air quality by absorbing toxins, and help to create a vibrant and refreshing atmosphere that your employees can enjoy working in.

Studies have even shown that plants can reduce stress, boost mood and increase productivity.

 

Keyboard Covers

Be honest, we’ve all been guilty of eating over our desks! Keyboards can harbor a surprising amount of germs, crumbs and bacteria, especially in a shared office environment. But keyboard covers are an inexpensive and effective way to keep the keys clean and hygienic. 

They can be replaced easily, and washed regularly to maintain a sanitary work environment.

 

Desk Dividers

Finally, desk dividers are an essential office must-have for creating a sense of privacy in an open-plan office environment. These dividers offer your employees a dedicated space to focus on their tasks without distractions from their neighbours. 

They can be customised to the match the aesthetic of your office, and removed when collaboration is required.
