Top productivity tools for work and study at home

Know the essential office/school tools and supplies to be productive remotely

With no end in sight yet for the global pandemic we’re facing, work and study from home are fast becoming the ‘new normal.’ In the months that many have been telecommuting and studying remotely, several tools and items have significantly become household essentials.

Among the products people rush to buy are office supplies and tech hardware, which are seeing a surge in retail sales amid the COVID-19 crisis. This demand is driven by consumers seeking to be productive, connected, and organized remotely, according to NPD Group.

Based on NPD Group’s report, home office solution, organization, and school from home-related products saw double- and triple-digit dollar sales increases at retail in the five weeks ending April 4.

Moreover, while back-to-school is the “holiday season” for the office supplies industry, the current situation has prompted an off-season, springtime spike in traditional supplies purchases.

Additionally, as sustainability and appeal for reusable and eco-friendly options grow, office supplies are seeing a boost in smart notebook sales as well.


Below are some of the top productivity tools that are in demand, with examples that are available online via Global Sources.
