What Is Workspace Satisfaction?

Nov 10, 2021 12:19:39 PM / by Banner posted in Product, Employee Wellbeing, Health


What is workspace satisfaction?

When something just does exactly what it’s supposed to do, perfectly. When it looks right, sounds right, feels right and works right. When the aesthetics, acoustics and functionality are rewarding in themselves. When you can’t quite explain it, but you know it feels good. 

In today’s new hybrid normal, business machines and solutions for workplace wellness and organisation have become even more important than ever. You can easily ensure that you can create a workspace setting which allows employees and colleagues to thrive whilst working in comfort. Banner is proud to partner with Fellowes to create workspace satisfaction. 

Below, we take a look at the main areas in which different solutions can be useful to ensure optimum satisfaction.

A truly effective, yet simple labelling solution can improve efficiency, productivity and security letting you get back to focussing on getting the job done.

Ensure you have your hybrid working equipment covered

Oct 13, 2021 2:55:10 PM / by Banner posted in Product, Working from Home, Return to the Workplace


In September 2021, London saw its busiest morning rush-hour since the first national lockdown of March 2020, and we continue to see a marked return to the workplace.  

On Monday 6th September a total of 831,000 passengers used the London Underground between the hours of 7am and 10am alone. This story was mirrored on the buses, with passenger numbers up 40% on the previous week, according to Transport for London. 

Although high in comparison to previous weeks and months, these figures actually represent around half of pre-pandemic figures, which paints an interesting picture on how the working population’s weekly schedule will look going forward. Last month, an average of more than 1.8 million journeys were made on the Tube every weekday - compared to 3.9m in July 2019, so it is clear that patterns have changed, perhaps permanently. With more of us using public transport to get to the office, time management is one of the key areas in making a smooth journey to work; However it’s not the only factor to take into account when switching to a Hybrid Working Solution, or making a full return to the office.
