Must Buys to up Your Office Desk Game [July 2017]

When was the last time you really paid attention to your workspace? It's about time you revamped it and improved your productivity!

The average office worker is assigned a desk that they will often spend years working at, unless their job changes. 

With that in mind, how much time and attention do you pay to your workspace? Like our recent blog suggests, spend half an hour each month tidying up your workspace and computer desktop to enjoy productive days:

  • 41% believe that a tidy and organised workspace is key to enhancing productivity (Source: Brother)
  • 1 in 10 bosses said a messy desk would stop them promoting an employee (Source: Brother)
