4 Working-From-Home Essentials to Boost Productivity

Remote working is a concept that has been around for several years now but it has become the new normal since the pandemic hit. Since this work setup is here to stay, employers need to make sure that the shift from office to remote working is seamless and that not only includes providing the staff with everything they need to work smoothly and efficiently but to also keep their morale up. Here are the top branded 4 things that your remote staff can’t work without.

Headphones & Earbuds


Headphones and earbuds have become necessities while working for most people. Since the emergence of open-plan offices, headphones have helped employees drown out the noises of their coworkers to help them focus on their work. Now that most employees have transitioned to working from home, headphones are mostly used for Zoom meetings, listening to music to help their focus, and drowning out the noise, this time from pets and children.

Branding tip: Branded headphones are not just used at home. People also use it when they go out, whether they are grocery shopping, walking, jogging, or cycling, so make sure to make your branding easily noticeable to get the maximum promotional benefits.

Powerbanks





We all rely heavily on our phones in all aspects of our lives. We are practically obsessed with it already as we spend hours staring at our screens all day. Therefore, it is important to keep our smartphones juiced up with power banks. This is especially important for employees who rely on their smartphones for work, such as those who make or take calls or manage social media accounts.

Branding tip: Same as headphones, power banks can also be used when people are out and about, so make sure that your branding can easily be seen to maximise impact.

Stationery



Most jobs may have gone digital, but working won’t be complete without stationary. Writing by hand is still the best way to go when taking down notes as it allows the brain to process the information better, improve memory recall, and sharpen critical thinking.

Branding tip: Office stationery, such as notebooks and pens, are some of the most cost-effective promotional tools. They have a low cost per impression while also having a longer shelf life than other promo items. They are also versatile and can be used for different campaigns, such as employee engagement and reward programmes, corporate gifts, and marketing giveaways.

Snacks






Food can go a long way in showing your care and appreciation for your employees. Not only are they relatively affordable, but they also improve the morale and productivity of employees.

Branding tip: Snacks may be a short-term gesture, but it is still a gesture that your staff will surely appreciate and remember for a very long time especially in this difficult time. Snacks are also inexpensive so they can make for great rewards and gifts, fostering healthy brand advocacy within the organisation.
