8 Must-Have Electronics and Gadgets for Your Office
Wondering about the must-have electronics and gadgets for your office? Look no more. A study published in the Journal of Public Affairs, Administration, and Management showed that the comfort and design of an office impacts productivity. So, give your office environment an upgrade to see improve in your team’s performance. Here are 8 must-have electronics to turn any boring office into an exciting one.
1. Unique lighting
Let your team easily change the lighting of their work area with Philips Hue Lighting. Controlled via an iPhone app, you can set the wireless LED lights to change to millions of colors. The bulbs last for 15,000 hours, which means if you have it on for 16 hours a day, it will last 2.5 years.
$170 for Philips Hue A-19 Starter Kit.
2. Social media display
Turn any display in your lobby or break room into an interactive social media feed of your company’s activities. Simply get Enplug’s mini device and plug it into the TV. Easily customize the feed in your Enplug web dashboard. Watch your teammates’ eyes light up when they see personalized messages on the display for them.

We use bluetooth speakers, connected to our Spotify account, to play music from our teammates’ playlists.

With so many electronics per teammate, every one of our outlets are used. There’s no room to waste outlets we love adjustable power strips for their sleek and space-efficient design.
