In a large corporate office, organisation is key. With staff coming in and out attending meetings and events, it is important that easy, immediate access to the necessary stationery and equipment is available. This is best achieved with clear workspaces, efficient technology and effective monitoring of supplies.
To help you along the way, we have put together the best corporate stationery hacks for 2020 so you can start the year right.
Keep your desk tidy
Tidy desk, tidy mind.
In order to work effectively, it is important to prioritise a small part of your day for tidying up your desk. Ideally you would do this at the end of each working day so you can arrive to a clear workspace the next morning, ready to face the day ahead.
Doing this will also ensure you can keep track of your stationery and know exactly where everything is, as soon as you need it.
Create a junk jar
Placing a clear, glass jar in the corner of your desk provides a space to put all the random bits and bobs that you have accumulated which end up scattered around.
Stationery including elastic bands and paper clips, as well as loose change, clutter your desk. Popping them in this handy jar clears the space and allows you to see what is in there when it comes to needing it.
Think outside the box with your branded stationery
Branded business stationery such as business cards, pens or memory sticks are all great ways to market your business and give out useful items that you can guarantee people will use. However, everyone else is also doing the same.
Why not create something that stands out amongst the rest?
Everyone loves a sweet treat, especially around Christmas or Easter. During these times of the year why not create branded sweet jars displaying your company name and business details to give to clients or potential customers. This is something they are bound to place on their reception desk or workspace so will still work as a marketing technique.
TOP TIP: Place on the table at your business or careers fair – people are always drawn to an edible treat and it gives you a chance to network!
Companies often give out technology based branded stationery such as memory sticks or headphones but a phone charger would also be a great idea. Everyone is always in need of a phone charger and it’s something that will be used every day so your brand will get plenty of exposure.
Personalise your desk
Personalising your workspace with green plants, family photos and a quirky pen pot or desk organiser will make you feel more at home, at work. Adding a personal touch will make you take more pride in the organisation and cleanliness of your desk, increasing your overall productivity each day.
Businesses are always looking for innovative ways to improve office culture and work environments. Ensuring staff have access to the right corporate stationery and supplies is an excellent way to do this as your surroundings are what can increase or decrease productivity.
