With hybrid work here to stay, Staples Canada launches The Great Home Office Upgrade, giving every Canadian $100* to upgrade their workspace

Survey finds that many Canadians don’t currently have a home office – and half of those that do report the need for an upgrade

Richmond Hill, ON, February 1, 2022 – As the world of work continues to change, having a functional workspace is more important than ever. However, a recent survey commissioned by Staples Canada said that 45 per cent of Canadians report not having a home office or workspace currently – and of the 55 per cent that do have one, half (50 per cent) report the need for an upgrade. To remedy this, Staples Canada has launched The Great Home Office Upgrade, giving every Canadian $100 to upgrade their workspace*.

According to Statistics Canada, nearly one-third (32 per cent) of Canadians were working from home in early 2021 – up eightfold from just five years earlier. Moreover, 40 per cent of all jobs can be done from home and, once the pandemic ends, employees might want to work from home for 24 per cent of their total hours.

“We’ve heard many stories from customers who are still working from their dining rooms or are feeling sore because they lack the right ergonomic tools,” said John DeFranco, Chief Commercial Officer, Staples Canada. “Hybrid work is here to stay, and Staples is helping Canadians navigate this shift by offering $100 to upgrade their workspace. By offering this promotion, paired up with solid advice and expertise from Staples, we hope to help our customers improve their productivity, flexibility, and wellness.”

Throughout the month of February, customers who spend $400 on eligible workspace furniture, technology products and accessories at Staples Canada stores or will receive a $100 Staples gift card.
