10 Hybrid-Certified Products To Help You Work From Anywhere

Get more done with comfort-, creativity- and productivity-boosting products designed to manage the flow of hybrid work life.

Hybrid work is here to stay. According to the Staples Canada-Angus Reid Future of Work Report:

• 65% of employees surveyed currently work fully remote or hybrid;

• 7 out of 10 respondents state the importance of flexibility with hybrid or remote work models;

• Over half of employees surveyed say they’d be much less likely to consider an employer that didn’t offer a fully remote option or flex hours.

As hybrid becomes the new normal, employers will need to shift the spotlight from office design to Work From Anywhere design — which is exactly what Staples’ new Hybrid Certified collection does.

Hybrid Certified from Staples

“This collection evolved from the focus on hybrid work that we have had for the last few years. It is a collection that is supported by input from our vendors, input from our merchants, as well as the experts on our Work From Anywhere advisory council, to identify products that support personalized productivity, optimized portability, and that enhance efficiencies and safety. And all of this helps to drive employer satisfaction and employee motivation in a hybrid working world,” says Marisa Harris, Director, Brand And Solutions Innovation for Staples Canada.

Hybrid-Certified products are designed to help Canadians work well (comfortably, ergonomically), work smart (with portable, secure, dependable technology) and work inspired (in a perfect-for-you workspace that fosters creativity and motivation).

“These things do not work independently, they actually all work together, and they're all integrated,” explains Harris. “We've thought about how all of these products individually are Hybrid Certified, but as a collective, really all work together to ensure that you are getting everything that you need to support you in this new hybrid work mode,” she explains.
