The Evolution of Work-Life

There’s no secret that what's going on in the world has changed the landscape of working forever.

  • According to the US Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, before COVID, 4.7 million1 workers in the US worked from home regularly. Now, in a global survey by Gartner, Inc., it was discovered that 88%2 of the workforce is doing so from the comfort of their own homes. On top of that, in the results of a survey by Global Workplace Analytics, roughly 76%3 of global office workers have a desire to continue working from home once everything opens back up again.

    As work-life has evolved towards more people working from home, there has been more of an increased reliance on technology, along with traditional methods, to ensure people are productive while working from anywhere they can find. But with this increase in technology use, there has also been an increase in distractions. Add in the uncertainty of where you’ll set up your workspace and you have the potential to derail an entire workday. So, as we continue to adjust to our new, ever-changing surroundings, it is more important than ever to be prepared for whatever the workday throws your way. With a variety of products offered from both Scotch™ Brand and Post-it® Brand, you have everything that you’ll need to not only evolve your workspace but to thrive in it.

    As work-life has evolved over the last few months, so has the way we manage our productivity. With Scotch™ Brand and Post-it® Brand products, you can not only refresh your home workspace, but you can also evolve how you work within it. 

    Dispense and Go
    As the evolution of work continues and more people are working from home, there is more of a reliance on technology to help keep you in contact with your team and stay on top of all projects moving parts. While technology has made remote working much easier in a lot of ways, one aspect it can’t help with is in developing a suitable office desk space replacement at home. At home, you’re more likely to work where you're most comfortable on any given day. And with such uncertainty in your workspace, it’s important to make the most of the space you’re using, when you’re using it. With the Scotch® Clip & Twist Desktop Tape Dispenser, you can take all your taping needs on-the-go. With a simple clip to horizontal or vertical surfaces 1.25” thick for easy one-handed tape dispensing from any angle, you can be prepared to wrap, repair, create, and more with just the twist of a wrist. When space matters as much as productivity, the Scotch® Clip & Twist Desktop Tape Dispenser makes your workspace work for you.

    Stick with it:
    While technology has made significant advancements to make working from home easier than ever, there is still some magic you can make throughout your workday. As you move through your house to find a comfortable working environment, the chances of tearing important papers grows. But don’t let a little cut paper rip away from your focus from bigger tasks. With the invisible, strong, secure, and permanent seal of Scotch® Magic™ Tape, you can easily mend important documents back to their original form or repair the many rips and tears that life will throw your way. And when a job requires a secure, lasting hold– from repairs and mounting to crafts and more– Scotch® Super-Hold Tape lets you make quick fixes on the fly with a strong hold that won’t stand out. So, whether it’s concealing confidential documents, sealing a small care package, or securing envelopes, when it matters to you, rely on the powerful bond of Scotch® Super-Hold Tape.

    Laminate and Tape
    The evolution of work has allowed people to skip the commute and make their workday happen from nearly anywhere, mostly at home. But even while working from home, you may find yourself on the move between rooms or locations. With all that moving, you could be putting your important documents in jeopardy of becoming spilled on, torn, or accidentally written on, or worse. The possibilities are endless. With the Scotch™ Thermal Laminator, you can swiftly, and easily, preserve the important documents you handle most often, making them durable enough to withstand everything from hanging on walls of your workspace damage-free with Scotch® Wall-Safe Tape, carrying around, writing on, or whoever the ever-evolving workweek can throw your way.

    Shipping Evolved
    Not only has how we work evolved over the last few months but so has how we go about our daily activities, like going to public places. These days, you’re finding yourself at home more often than not. You're working in it, teaching in it, living in it. And now, shipping from it. But with everything you have going on at home already, do you want to clutter up your already precious space with oodles of boxes, filler, and tape? What about spending all the time it takes to get one single item ready to be shipped out? Or how about the mess that packing boxes can leave behind? More than likely, the answer is a resounding “NO”. Lucky for you, with Scotch™ Flex & Seal Shipping Rolls, it is much easier because it is an all-in-one shipping solution! Just a roll and pair of Scotch™ Brand scissors are all you need to create a clean and organized shipping center from the inside your home.
