Around 25% of the UK population work in an office, making it the perfect place to show off your promotional merchandise.
This figure is unsurprising when you consider how many different businesses operate from within an office. The only obvious exceptions are builders, landscapers and working in retail. However it has been found that working in an office environment can lead to a 32% decrease in an individuals well being thus reducing productivity by 15%. The reason working in an office can effect a person so much is largely due to stress. The uncertainty of the British economy is a large contributor to stress and anxiety. It is therefore very important to keep staff morale high within the office environment. With this in mind, we recommend investing in inspiring and fun promotional merchandise designed to keep morale high. By this we mean products like our funky stress balls and creative rulers rather than boring pencils and pens. Also useful products which can assist in increasing well being are also recommended.
One product we can really recommend is a desk tidy. A desk tidy will ensure that the member of staff can always find what they are looking for, taking away at least one stress! If you purchase a colourful desk tidy it is also good for emotional well being as bright colours are proven to improve moods. Another item which can help to improve moods is a photo frame. By having a family photo on a desk, you are providing a home comfort which makes the desk more personal.
Another item which can help to increase personal well being is a plant. Plants are proven to decrease stress and enhance productivity by 12%. This is because plants reduce dust particles, they can also purify air which makes a nicer environment to work in. Big indoor plants can be expensive, but you can just purchase a 'desktop garden' which will give off the same effect as well as providing basil, cress and lemon balm which can be taken home and used in cooking.
You could also purchase more practical items like a calculator but with a twist. There are a number of different creative calculators you can purchase including one which is styled to look like a flip mobile phone. A calculator will also ensure no unnecessary brain work for your staff!
Staff well being is very important, not just on a personal level but also in terms of productivity. So check out our website and increase staff morale with promotional merchandise.
