The office desk has become something of a sacred thing in recent times. People care for their desks and like to personalize them. But, there are a few things that determine whether or not your desk is good or not. What do I mean by ‘good’? A good office desk helps you be productive and provides for your everyday needs. And, one of the things that determine if it’s good is the stuff you have on it. Keeping that in mind, here are three things you need on your office desk:
In this day and age, the workplace is dominated by technology. What this means is that you’ll probably have a range of devices with you at all times. You might have two phones, business and personal, as well as a tablet for work. All of these things need to be charged, which can be hard when you’re working with others. You might have to share chargers, and may not have any free places to plug in and charge. So, some spare chargers will go a long way. Buy a few spare ones and keep them on your desk at all times. This way, you’ll always have a charger handy. Also, I suggest portable ones too. This means you can charge your devices when you’re on the move. Plus, you don’t have to rely on a wall socket being free.
Top Of The Range Printer
Obviously, you need a printer on your office desk. But, it’s not enough just to get any old printer. No, you need something that’s top of the range. Something that prints things quickly, and can photocopy and scan documents too. If I had to recommend a brand, it would be either HP or Epson. The reason for this is that they both have lots of models that are ideal for personal office use. Plus, you can find cheap Jet Tec Ink Cartridges for sale that fit printers from both manufacturers. So, you end up with a quality printer; that’s cheap to run. No doubt you’ll use your printer a lot, so it makes life easier when it’s right on your desk. These days, technology has advanced to the point where amazing printers are seriously small. So, it won’t take up too much space.
External Hard Drive
For me, an external hard drive is very important for your desk at work. You never know when you might run out of memory, or need to backup some data. Plus, you can put things on the hard drive from your home computer, and bring it to work with you. All in all, it makes your work data a lot safer and more secure too. Plus, you give your computer a storage boost as well. Saving stuff to the external drive will free up space on the computer and stop it from slowing down. So, you end up with a faster computer as well.
Make sure your office desk has all three of these things on it. If it does, then your working days will be a lot better.
