Revamp Your Workstations
Use the new year as motivation to refurbish and redesign your office workstations. Look for desks and chairs that can adjust to the needs of each user, such as ergonomic options, along with those that add convenient storage units to make it easy for employees to keep their areas organized.
Welcome With Accessories
If you’re planning to bring new employees on board in the coming year, try keeping a small supply of desk accessories ready to help them set up their work areas. File trays, reading lamps and drawer organizers are all great additions for any desk setup.
Prepare Perfect Presentations
The right tools are key to creating a powerful business presentation, so have a supply of colorful binders and file folders ready to go. Whether it's an impromptu team meeting or an emergency executive review, your well-stocked supply ensures that your team has what they need to create stunning presentations.
Dive into Digital Storage
If your file room is overrun with paperwork-stuffed cabinets, it might be time to make a New Year's resolution to go digital with your file storage. Invest in document scanners for the office so everyone can scan their paperwork and save space.
Give Tablets an Upgrade
Provide tablet keyboards to employees who use tablets daily. These keyboards can transform the devices into miniature laptops, making work easier and more efficient while they’re on the road or at client locations.
Collaborate in Color
Add some color to your office brainstorming sessions with colorful whiteboard markers. Adding fresh colors and a few new whiteboards or large paper pads can help inspire your office crew to collaborate on projects and get a fresh perspective on business challenges.
Load up on Office Supplies
If you're like most office managers, you might have nightmares about running out of pens and other everyday supplies. Buy necessities in bulk at the beginning of the year to replenish your key items so your supply cabinet is fully stocked and ready for the year ahead.
Keep Germs at Bay
Having the right tools to clean and disinfect the workspaces in your office can make it harder for germs to wreak havoc in the workplace. Keep plenty of hand sanitizer and wipes ready for cold and flu season for a cleaner, happier office, too.
Pack and Ship like a Pro
Regardless of who you ship items to, having the right packing materials and envelopes is essential, especially when it’s a fast-paced office environment. Keep plenty of business- and letter-size envelopes on hand for day-to-day mailing, and also keep a few boxes available for any last-minute shipping needs.
