Trends in technology have meant that the separation from work and a personal life has skewed. Add in the possibility of being in contact with coworkers globally and suddenly your personal life has to take a backseat to your work. Does it have to, though? Let’s start with email. Yes, your coworker or manager may send out an email at 9:30 PM or 3:00 AM.  Do you have to answer it that very second? Not necessarily, depending on your role. If someone deems their email as a priority, you should be able to respond to it when you start your work day rather than while you are off. Setting certain times when you aren’t glued to the company laptop or handheld device shows that you are in control of your work. Moving from email to the actual office, telecommuting can be a great way to balance work and extra activities. Setting up a home office helps to reduce the stress of commuting to and from work. Telecommuting is something that would have to be discussed […]

A Few Words About Staplers

Staplers have been around for 300 years, and the idea is even older. But they weren’t exactly practical until the 19th century. There’s a lot more to know, and it’s fun and interesting (no cribbing for term papers, now.)

A Few Words About Us

Located in the rolling hills northwest of Chicago, Swingline made its reputation over 60 years ago as the first stapler manufacturer to let you pop open the top of the product and drop in the staples. Seriously. We’ve been making equally revolutionary developments in office products ever since. Swingline is a division of the ACCO Brands Corporation.
