over. With companies still navigating office life post-pandemic, constant improvements
and changes have routinely been implemented across offices all over the world.

THE TOP OFFICE TRENDS WE NOTICED IN 2022
- FLEXIBILITY IN WORK SCHEDULES: With the pandemic causing a
monumental shift in where the workforce was operating, with many employees
working from home, it’s been seen that this trend is here to stay. Some
companies have completely stuck with the work from home idea and made that
their normal, with very few instances requiring employees at the office. Other
companies have begun to implement a hybrid stance where employees split time
between working from home and in the office. Employers have taken this stance
to maintain happiness for those who enjoy working in the office and for those
who enjoy working from the comfort of their home office. With this trend looking
to continue in 2023, the importance of having the right equipment and supplies,
no matter where the office resides, remains vital.
- VARIATION AND VARIETY IN WORKSPACES: As offices around the world
look for ways to improve their spaces to increase productivity, there has been an
increased shift in variety to the standard cubicle setup seen throughout the past.
Ergonomics has become a focal point in this change to improve office layouts.
The main goals employers have in mind with this change are maintaining and
encouraging the ability to collaborate, sustaining employee health with more
health beneficial setups that minimize repetitive movements, and to add a fresh
sense of change to their offices.
- EMPLOYEE WELLNESS: Post pandemic, employee health has been at the
forefront of employer goals throughout offices. Mental and physical wellness
drive employee productivity and success. Whether employees are working from
home or in the office, it is important for employers to stay in touch with how their
employees are feeling and offer ways in which to sustain or increase wellness.
The strategies range from wellness days to stress management opportunities.
- FURTHER HOME OFFICE EFFICIENCY: The days of working from the kitchen
counter are over for employees working from home. As more people transitioned
into a work from home or hybrid schedule, a need for further improvement to their
home offices quickly came about. Office suppliers took full advantage of this
trend by offering a plethora of products to increase effectiveness and efficiency
for those who do not make the everyday commute to the office. Along with office
hardware, employees and their companies have found collaboration and digital
solution tools an everyday necessity to work. These tools allowed employees to
collaborate with one another from anywhere in the world.
