Improve Your Office Day 2017

Next Wednesday (4th October) is Improve Your Office Day, and, as you might guess, we are firmly of the opinion that adding a bit of fun and colour can make all the difference to a work environment!

Whilst this date might not might up there with bank holidays and Christmas, it’s well worth sticking it in your diary! Having a stress-free desk area is key to our work temperament – struggling to find our keyboards under a mound of letters and stationery is not good for anyone’s stress levels! Plus by adding a few funky touches, your work area will be the envy of all your colleagues!

Here at Red Candy we have some top tips for cheering up your work space (naturally accompanied by some not-so-subtly mentioned products which we sell…) – whether it’s your office or a home study area. From desk tidies to funky phones, look no further than Red Candy to ‘improve your office!’

View the full range of office products here or view our Top Tips below! And also check out the article we recently wrote for The Custard Factory blog about giving your office some personality!
