Over the past few weeks, pretty much everything has changed about the way we work in America. With social distancing and even lockdown in effect in cities nationwide due to the pandemic, many of us are tasked with working from home—some of us, for the first time ever.
So, how do we get through it?
If you have to figure out a way to be productive working from your dining room table, we’ve got your back. Shamrock has put together a Work From Home Kit to help you navigate—and even get ahead—during this unprecedented time.
SETTING UP YOUR HOME OFFICE
These are the tools to help you work or study from home and achieve a level of professionalism in your new workspace—things like a combo Bluetooth speaker + wireless charging station, a wireless mouse, and an essential branded coffee mug (with a lid for no spills on your laptop).
REMOTE BRAND CONNECTION
While teams are dispersed and segmented during this time of isolation, these tools are geared toward inspiring the newly-remote workforce. Making employees and students feel pride and a connection to your brand even though they’re working remotely. You can make it easy for them to connect with items like comfy-yet-professional branded apparel (lightweight quarter-zips and polo shirts), wireless earbuds, and a tablet sleeve + stand.
VIRTUAL CONFERENCES I MEETINGS I TRAININGS
While the event industry has come to a screeching halt with cancelled conferences and meetings, we’ve seen a rise in video conferencing and podcasts. You might consider distributing virtual conference swag bags packed with items we all need when we’re tuning in from our laptops or tablets…charging banks, earbuds or headphones, writing utensils and notepads, insulated drinkware, etc. These items can still be sent to make people feel connected—and they’re useful well after the virtual cast is over.
ENJOYMENT AT HOME
The longer we stay cooped up, the greater the demand for in-home activities and entertainment. Look for more remote/online events in lieu of those concerts, vacations, and get-togethers that have been cancelled. Think about branded playing cards, speaker-charging station combos, sport bottles, tote bags, even snack food.
We’re all in this together. These are words we’ve heard over and over during this unusual time. But let them bring you the comfort that comes with knowing we’re here for you.
