What are the benefits of using a pen tray in the office?

How often are the words “can I borrow your pen?” uttered during a working day? It’s a common phrase as colleagues scramble for misplaced pens around untidy offices worldwide. Fortunately for these places, components are available to make lives much easier, including the Plastic Pen Tray.

Improves your organisation

When completing work, whether the task be big or small, you need to get it completely right. A messy, untidy, disorganised desk can cause you to struggle to concentrate. An untidy desk can lead to a loss of focus. Removing all clutter from a desk space may help you process information quicker and therefore make you more productive at work. One way to combat clutter and untidiness, would be with a pen tray. Somewhere to store all of your stationery with multiple sections allows you to be able to just reach in and easily grab what you need, as well as being able to sit comfortably at your desk and complete your work. Keeping a tidy working environment makes a person calmer and more attentive and this means you are more likely to notice things that are not as they should be, improving the standard of the work you can complete.

Presents professionalism

Not only does it help your brain to remain focused and on-task, it presents a professional image. Potential clients visiting an office will not want to see a sea of littered, messy desks that are completely unorganised. It does not show a company in a positive light, and could cause the client to think again about using that particular company. First impressions count for more than you might think, and people can create perceptions in their minds based on the smallest of things. Using pen trays to keep desk areas neat and tidy can allow people to have a positive view of certain companies. Of course, it is not just as simple as that, but a tidy, organised environment represents an organised company and Plastic Pen Trays from Insignia Manufacturing can help set you on the way to achieving that.
