Wall-Mount and Cubicle Brochure Holders…and Ways to Achieve a Clean, Organized Office!

Some find it an exercise in futility. Others are fussy to the point of obsession…and still never satisfied. And then there’s the eternal question: just how important is a clean, organized office? Can a tidy look somehow make you seem less productive or not very busy? Isn’t a messy office supposed to symbolize genius-at-work? Einstein himself is quoted as saying that “if a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” And just look at Steve Jobs’ office…

Accumulated clutter can easily turn to chaos, though, and office spring cleaning season is under way. Researchers at Michigan State University dug even deeper, claiming that cleaner, more organized work spaces lead to higher productivity and more accurate performance.

Health and basic cleanliness were also crucial findings of the study. Germs, dirt, and poor indoor air quality add up to sicker employees and higher absenteeism. According to the CDC, businesses lose 111 million workdays a year due to the flu alone! Clutter contributes to that.

Even with more work environments’ becoming less reliant on paper, proper document storage, retention, and display are still listed as high organizational priorities for efficient operations. Meeting that demand at eye level atop cubicle partitions and mounted on the wall? Enter Cubicle Brochure Holders and Wall-Mount Multi-Pocket Brochure Holders.

Word-of-mouth advertising and the trusty printed brochure are still credited for valuable contributions to sales revenue and brand awareness. Showcasing literature displays in easy-to-install Wall-Mount Multi-Pocket Brochure Holders delivers that spotlight clearly.

Partition/cubicle walls also become prime display opportunities and organizing tools, thanks to clear premium thickness acrylic. Cubicle Brochure Holders are designed to fit barrier width, reaching eye level comfortably – ideal for literature displays, promotions, and important documents.

Name Plate Holders and NYC Trend-Setting Office Designs

“Breakout Spaces” Office Design

When it comes setting trends in style and design, many eyes naturally turn to see what’s happening in New York City. For good reason, as it turns out. Some bold, exciting changes are in the works at several NYC businesses, shaping a new approach in office interiors and workspaces.

 

That’s the topic of a recent Robin Powered blog by Gabrielle Dalvet. Investigation for her writing began with January’s 3-day Future Offices event geared, in part, to office designs and the strategies behind them. This inspired a closer look at specific examples of interior design across Manhattan.

A recent expansion at Yelp garnered attention by incorporating iconic neighborhood features around Soho and Hell’s Kitchen, including Grand Central Station in a new café and lounge area.

“Breakout spaces” are also part of the new Yelp design. Free-standing enclosures like these are “replacing cubicles and closed doors” with elevated platforms and without walls.

The CFA Institute for investment management professionals also got a facelift, replacing “a stuffy reception desk blocking the entryway” with an upscale, open kitchen/lounge area. Full height windows were added to help fuse the outdoors inside. Employees at CFA also have options in shared workbenches and specially designated “private focus rooms.”

Another “must” for the modern professional? Classic Name Plate Holders are also getting a trendy new twist or two. Desk Nameplate Holders with Borders in different color options are part of the approach. Customization with inserts can make names and titles stand out with superior visibility and select orders could qualify for free card stock included to help with D-I-Y printing. Desktop Name Plate Holders are also exceptional for guidance signage.

As for those shared work spaces, a new development in name plates has culminated in the creation of a Computer-Mount Name Plate Holder. Made of a rigid vinyl, this Name Plate Holder mounts securely to computer monitors and provides a great way to showcase identification in more mobile inner offices.

Who knows? Today could be the day you start a trend of your own!

Name Plate Displays and Office Accessories: a Modern Re-set in Traditional Office Environments

Purple Desk SettingIt’s a new day in modern office design as businesses figure out the formula for balancing worker productivity and comfort in a traditional setting. The basic tools haven’t changed – people still need desks, chairs, and organizational accessories. And don’t forget the Name Plate Holders! All are just as essential in 2019 as they were decades ago.

New challenges today crop up in multiple ways. Ergonomic chairs, keyboards, and   desks adjustable to different heights make it easier for office workers to do their jobs with less strain on the body. One office supply company also pointed to the greater number of those in the workforce with disabilities. Designing workspaces with easily reachable sockets and incorporating color-coded keyboards for those having trouble seeing certain keys are just two ways offices have changed.

This kind of “Assistive Technology” makes work environments more inclusive for talented individuals whose contributions might have been missed otherwise. A provision in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 even addresses the requirement for telecommunications upgrades, for example, to include those with hearing or speech impairments.

Beyond function, modern offices are also becoming more adaptable without sacrificing style. This is where upgrades to the traditional office look take on unique appeal. Just look at the Name Plate.

Originally, Desktop Name Plate Holders were largely uniform wood or metal. Today’s Office Name Plates still share the most popular standard size (2” high x 8” wide) but depart vastly in other ways. Bordered Desk Nameplate Holders are now available in Silver or Black. New pattern selections also lend a more textured appearance over the old standard.

Wall Mount Nameplate Holders in clear acrylic also take identification from desktops to eye level, including models with stainless steel standoffs for added appeal. Easy-to-install Office Name Plate Holders also mount to doors and cubicles. Some even come with free card stock for DIY custom printing.

If your office environment is due for an upgrade, be sure to account for everyone. As for those working with disabilities, recently departed President George H. W. Bush said it best upon enactment of the ADA: “Let the shameful wall of exclusion finally come tumbling down.”

It was 1966 when the Grinch first aired on TV, showing the world of Whos in Whoville beating their Trum-tookas, dancing with Jing-tinglers, and blowing their Floo-floobers. Now another “Ville” is celebrating in a fashion that’s making quite a splash! Welcome to BuzziVille.

BuzziVille is a unique village…one that’s well-suited to cutting edge offices. A “flexible and modular freestanding system,” BuzziVille serves as a more personal, freely developed kind of community within the office. It’s easy to rearrange and serves as both public and private space…a movable urban workspace that even includes informal meeting rooms.

Functional and fun, BuzziVille is part of the BuzziSpace brand…a group of products geared to improve worker well-being through “human centric design.” Buzzi acoustics, lighting, and furnishings for modern workplaces are gaining serious attention. BuzziWrap Desks, BuzziProp LEDs, BuzziBlinds, the BuzziHub – you get the idea – all innovatively designed with broad appeal for forward-thinking office managers.

Name, title, and department ID inserts also get a pronounced designation in Desk Name Plate Holder displays. There’s nothing like acrylic to complement the overall eye appeal taking root in business centers and campuses.

And that brings us back to BuzziSpace and BuzziVille. A recent expo called Orgatec 2018 showcased products like BuzziBracks, another flexible new modular system in work spaces, and the BuzziHat, an attractive sound absorber that blends well in office surroundings. Pretty cool, right?

Acrylic Display Essentials and Trends for Functional, Productive, Good Looking Offices

BCG3_51602Hunting for ways to upgrade and enhance your office décor that simultaneously foster productivity and deliver functionality? The business publication Inc. recently discussed trends in office redesign as part of its search of the “World’s Coolest Offices.”

One trend points to offices creating more inviting casual spaces for individual work, partly in response to the growth of remote work environments. Seems that productivity often goes up when staff can operate someplace besides their assigned workstation, like in an onsite lounge or café.

Shaking up the floor layout can also “break up the monotony.” Inc. pointed to BCG Digital Ventures in NYC and the labyrinth employees navigate as opposed to less-inspiring rows of desks. The formula is simple: an engaged worker is a happier, more productive worker. A workplace lacking inspiration only stultifies creativity and initiative.

In-office visual accents also serve an important purpose. Wall art, furniture, signage, and even tapestries are all part of a movement to carve out a more distinctive identity – not just for customers/clients but also for those internally who build the business.

If you’re upgrading, here are a few other vital visual essentials for modern, aesthetic appeal. Transforming cubicle layout into new pods? Consider options in Acrylic Name Plate Holders, including new Colored Borders. Adjustable Cubicle Name Plate Holders are worth a look, as well as CMB10 Cubicle Business Card Holders…durable, strong, and attractive with 10 different slots for cards.

Clear acrylic lends solid visual appeal in other ways. Cubicle Sign Holders and Sign Frames feature larger dimensions and an ideal showcase for literature displays that draw the eye AND help keep desks clutter-free. Once your display captures attention, the Acrylic Sign Holder conveys each message clearly with tremendous visual acuity, almost like glass.

Time for a dynamic office upgrade? You don’t have to wait for 2019 to get a jump on a design that makes the team happier and more productive…nor the acrylic display accents that complement them!

Making a Healthier, Dynamic Work Environment

workplace-health-promotionThere’s a lot of discussion about divisiveness across many segments of American society. Ironically, “us vs. them” debates are also fostering a notion of sticking together…a key component in the workplace where millions of Americans spend so much of their daily lives. Regardless of beliefs about politics or a myriad of other topics, creating a cohesive work environment is more critical and potentially challenging than ever.

Large offices, floor layouts with cubicle divisions, and areas separated by departments that rarely if ever interact can leave staff feeling disengaged from co-workers they pass every day. Sparking a sense of camaraderie helps make work feel more welcoming, and that can be critical to both worker happiness and productivity.

Dr. Bill Morrison of The Globe and Mail recently cited research in positive psychology identifying “key conditions essential for building healthy and effective workplace environments” that directly affect employee well-being and how he/she thrives.

The first of those conditions ties directly to that “sense of ‘relatedness’ or connectedness among employees,” according to Morrison. Simple greetings and friendly exchanges help “people gain a sense of positive connectedness” and that can translate into a family-like support system. Work results tend to be better and more people feel better about their involvement.

How to connect staff in work environments that tend to be otherwise anonymous? Something as simple as your office name plates can help put a name to a face. Addressing individuals by name creates a sense of belonging and makes exchanges more probable: starting with “hello” is more easily accomplished by name identification.

When workers see one another as nameless drones, office morale and a sense of teamwork can suffer. NPBR Desktop Name Plates in Silver or Black Borders can help break the ice, or a slanted look in NPAA Glass Green. Several exceptional Name Plate options are now available!
