The Right Products Can Solve Your Office Problems

Is your business ready, willing, and able to operate at a high level? We sure hope so, but if not, we've got you covered. Today on the blog we'll discuss 6 of the most common office related issues and the solutions needed to solve them. From fighting fatigue and discomfort to making a lasting impression on your valued visitors, the right products can take your business to the next level.

1.) Fatigue and Discomfort

Fatigue and discomfort are productivity killers. They strike at a moments notice and take no prisoners. To solve this common issue, you'll need the right combination of ergonomic products. As you sit for extended periods of time, even the best posture habits begin to suffer as blood flow is restricted. It's for this reason that many workers are making the switch to height adjustable workstations that make it easy to transition between sitting and standing.

Sit to stand attachments are available for less than $300.00 that can be paired with almost any existing desk. If you're ready to take things to the next level, a height adjustable executive workstation may be the best option for you.

  • 5100 by OFM
  • S2S by ESI Ergonomic Solutions

2.) Limited Operating Space

Operating space is always at a premium. If you're feeling restricted, retractable keyboard trays and monitor arms will improve your situation in a hurry. The best part is, these products will also help you work smarter and more effectively.

A monitor arm will help you reduce neck strain and a dual screen setup will help you cut down on the time spent flipping back and forth between tabs.

A retractable keyboard tray will instantly clear usable desk surface space while providing you with the ability to compute at healthy angles to reduce the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

You can't go wrong with a Zira table from Global as they're available with the HDMI and USB inputs needed to take your presentations to the next level.

If you don't want to purchase an all new table, universal power modules can solve your problem on a budget. They're equipped with the inputs needed to streamline performance without breaking the bank.

4.) Minimal Square Footage

A restricted workspace makes it hard to be productive. The good news is, products are available to help. If you're using a desk in the middle of your space, consider a corner workstation like the SRE144 from the Bush Business Furniture Series C Elite collection. With plenty of overhead storage and mobile desk pedestals, you can instantly make your interior more effective. Minimal square footage is definitely the toughest problem to solve, but it's not impossible. With a little space planning ingenuity and the right corner desk you can do wonders with what you've got.

5 Ways To Maximize Office Space:

  • Use a corner desk configuration.
  • Invest in an overhead hutch instead of file cabinets that take up floor space.
  • Purge the non-essentials that make your space feel cramped.
  • Use shelves instead of bookcases.
  • Avoid a bulky executive style chair. Sleek Euro style chairs are available with the same ergonomic features.

5.) Poor Collaboration

Open Concept Benching

Collaboration has been the hottest topic of 2018. While traditional cubicle systems have offered privacy, they tend to close employees off from one-another. This year, open concept benching configurations have been rapidly replacing cubicle layouts as they encourage healthy collaboration.

There's lot's of other great ways to improve collaboration. How's your break room looking these days? The odds are it's become a forgotten space, but with the right products it can become a great area for employee collaboration. A flat screen TV, some bar height tables, and comfortable seating will make for a common area where good ideas are commonly tossed around.

6.) Make A Lasting Impression On Valued Visitors

It's no secret that first impressions are incredibly important in business. You'll no doubt want to start making your mark the second valued visitors walk in the door. It's for this reason that a well designed reception area with up-to-date products is key.

The first thing you'll want to purchase is a fashionable (but cost effective) check-in desk. The stations from the Mayline Aberdeen, Medina, and Sterling collections are all great options to consider.

The next thing you'll want to do is create an effective, comfortable, and interactive seating configuration. Beam seating and modular lounge seating will do the trick. If you really want to take your reception area to the next level, tablet arm chairs and powered furniture with USB inputs will certainly improve the guest experience.
