2023 must-have products for the workplace

As we begin the year, there is no better time to equip teams with the tools they need to make 2023 their most productive year yet, wherever work happens to be. We spoke with Maritoni Renaghan, Category Manager – Office Products, to share her insights on the top four workplace essentials for ringing in the new year.


“This may not be the first thing you think of, but it’s always good to kick off the new year with all your office equipment operational, charged, and ready to use. Don’t be caught short on batteries, make sure you have plenty on hand,” says Maritoni.

The Energizer Max Plus AAA Battery Pack has a 12-year shelf life and is one of Energizer’s longest-lasting alkaline batteries. It’s the ideal choice for workers who value performance, quality, dependability, and safety. It’s also designed to provide long-lasting power to your everyday workplace energy-draining devices.

“Ensure that batteries are properly recycled to avoid toxic materials in landfills and so that it can be recycled into something new,” advises Maritoni. Workplaces can always make a difference by registering for a safe and secure recycling collection box through Batteries 4 Planet Ark.

Whiteboard markers  

Have you ever gone to write on the board only to discover that the marker is dry and out of ink?

Maritoni suggests stocking up on high-quality whiteboard markers to kick off the new year. “Most teams have brainstorming or planning sessions during the new year, so the next time your team gets together, maximise your meetings and workshops by making sure you’ve got some fresh whiteboard markers, as well as plenty of colourful post-it notes.”

“The Artline 579 Whiteboard Chisel Set 6 is a must-have in your office, and the assorted colours give you plenty of options,” says Maritoni.

Laminating pouches 

Laminating pouches are ideal for anyone who wants to maintain the pristine condition of their printed documents, presentations, and signage. “If you’re looking for a good option for putting up new signage, posters or protecting your documents from dirt and moisture, the Winc Laminating Pouches are your best bet. The packaging also has a perforated flap that makes it easy to open, keeping your stationery drawers organised and mess-free,” says Maritoni.

Address labels

“It’s always good to start the year with an organised desk and everything in its place. The Avery QuickPeel Address Label with Sure Feed for Laser Printer is a handy must-have for sorting through and organising paperwork.

Address labels are useful for labelling folders, files, and of course, all your mailing needs. “This product has been certified FSC® Recycled which means it has been manufactured with 100% reclaimed material (either pre-consumer or post-consumer), ensuring that by buying these products, you’re helping to make a difference in making responsible purchasing decisions,” says Maritoni.
