How to Improve your Break Room

Often thought as a place to store your lunch or buy a snack from the vending machine, the break room can be a great common area in the office space for employee’s to decompress and socialize with their co-workers. In order to keep employee’s happy, companies need to offer more non-monetary incentives. A good break room can be one of these incentives.  Turn your break room into a temporary escape from the corporate pressures with these tips.

Free coffee and teaRolling in the office at 8 AM can be tough, and we don’t always have time to grab a coffee on the way in. A coffee at your desk makes catching up on emails much more bearable. Consider keeping a log where employees can mark when the coffee was last made, to make sure everyone can enjoy a fresh cup of Joe

Quiet times: Not everyone wants to get crazy on their breaks. To accommodate those who just want to catch their breath or read up on the news, consider setting dedicated “quiet hours” for the break room. These could be later in the afternoon, after everyone has had their lunch. Understanding that everyone deals with everyday stresses in different ways will help keep employees feeling appreciated.

Keep it clean: If you want your employee’s to see the break room as a relaxing environment, it needs to stay clean. Get everyone involved by creating a schedule delegating cleaning tasks to a different department, team or team member each week. Keep the cleaning supplies in the break room, so every team member can easily access them when they need to.

Bring the charge: Keep chargers for laptops, cell phones and other smart devices in the break room. Nothing is more frustrating than getting halfway through the day and realizing your phone is dying and you left your charger at home. Label all the chargers to make sure they stay in the office and aren’t brought home by accident.

A few break room changes can have a major, uplifting impact on productivity. You don’t need to break the bank to make these minor updates, and the return on investment in higher production, employee retention and better recruitment can be extremely profitable.

Shopper+ offers a wide range of office supplies and break room essentials, at very competitive prices. Improve your company culture and enhance the break room with Shopper+!

 

 

 

Are you still paying for Original cartridges? Why not Moustache?

online Ink toner cartridge supply

123inkcartidges is proud to be selling our own Moustache brand at a very competitive price. The Moustache brand has all your printing needs covered and offers a wide range of office supplies, at 50% of the cost. With the Moustache 2 year anniversary right around the corner, we ask you, why buy from the other brands, when you can buy from our Moustache brand and still get the premium quality you are looking for?

Our printing solutions are compatible for wide range of printer brands and series. Our website allows you to select your printer brand, series and model and we will suggest which ink cartridge or toner will work for you. We make the process very easy and simple, so how can you say no?

The average employee uses approximately 10,000 sheets of paper a year, costing somewhere between 6 and 13 cents per page. At the low end of that range, the average employee’s printing costs a business $600 per year, and at the high end, $1,300. Despite their great price, Moustache cartridges are high quality. This means businesses that switch to Moustache cartridges would only pay roughly $150 to $325 per employee, per year, without sacrificing quality. Depending on the size of your business, using Moustache products could mean huge savings for your company.

What’s even better than a cost effective solution?

Why buy from a Canadian brand?

Shopper + is proud to be a Canadian company. With a location is two Canadian cities, Montreal and Vancouver, we can help but brag about our Canadian pride. Canada has often been the butt end of many jokes, but we want to share with you why we think Canad-eh is the best darn country.

We treat our employees well

Canadian workers get at least two weeks and nine paid public holidays. (31) More women work here: For most of the past 40 years more American women have been in the labour market than in Canada, but after 2000 that changed—62 per cent of Canadian women are in the labour market

Multicultural Acceptance

Canada is a multicultural mosaic. With the racist and sexist rhetoric from our neighbours down North, it’s easy to forget the multicultural harmony that is our home and native land.

Political aggression

Canada is known for its progressive policies, like same sex marriage, gun laws and Universal Health Care. When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau chose a gender-equal cabinet, his response perfectly summed up Canada’s attitude… “Because is 2016”

Language

Most people in Canada speak English and one other language. French is widely taught and is the other official language of our country. Whatever your background, or the language you speak, it won’t be hard to find someone who you can communicate with.

Canadian pride

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) conducted a survey asking people in 36 countries to rank their general satisfaction level with life. Canadian’s ranked their life, on average, at 7.6, coming in third out of all countries. Basically, Canadian’s think living in Canada is pretty darn awesome, and we at Shopper + couldn’t agree more.

The Story of Moustache®

online Ink toner cartridge supply

Moustache®, a brand of ShopperPlus, was created by Jack Zhan in 2003 when he was a McGill University computer science graduate student. He realized that the high cost of printing was a serious issue for students.

In an effort to address the problem, Zhan launched an e-commerce startup to sell high quality yet affordable compatible ink and toner cartridges, something the printing industry was sorely lacking. He was well equipped to do so, having been a programmer for Alibaba.com (the world’s largest online retail platform) before studying at McGill.

Today, Moustache products save customers an average of 75% even though they often outperform the competition.

Moustache specializes in compatible cartridges (cartridges produced by a different manufacturer than your printer’s original cartridges) which work as well as brand name cartridges, but cost considerably less. Moustache is a product line of 123InkCartridges.ca, Canada’s number one source for printer ink cartridges and laser printer toner cartridges. Our business helps consumers save up to 80% on their ink and toner cartridge purchases. Moustache was created to manufacture compatible ink and toner cartridges (which are available for purchase on the 123InkCartridges.ca website) and high quality yet affordable office supplies (like pens, paper and post-it notes).

If you run a business and think saving money on ink and toner cartridges is not important, think again. Printer ink is more expensive than champagne, and offices guzzle it like water. The average employee uses approximately 10,000 sheets of paper a year, costing somewhere between 6 and 13 cents per page. At the low end of that range, the average employee’s printing costs a business $600 per year, and at the high end, $1,300. Despite their great price, Moustache cartridges are high quality. This means businesses that switch to Moustache cartridges would only pay roughly $150 to $325 per employee, per year, without sacrificing quality. Depending on the size of your business, using Moustache products could mean huge savings for your company. For example, if you run a large company with 500 employees, your printing costs could drop from $650,000 to just $162,500 per year. That’s enough money saved annually to hire 10 new mid-level employees!

You may be wondering why the line is named ‘Moustache’. Moustaches have historically been used to add an air of distinction to fictional characters. Agatha Christie gave fictional detective Hercule Poirot a moustache as a symbol of his dignity, intelligence, and punctuality. Jack Zhan dubbed the product line Moustache so that his customers would think of these qualities when they encountered his products. Moustache’s products live up to the name. They are compatible with over 5,000 models from brands like Brother, Canon, Epson, Hewlett Packard (HP), Samsung and Xerox; are certified by multiple industrial standards; and consistently outperform the competition.

Perhaps the best part about ordering Moustache ink and toner printer cartridges from 123printercartidges.ca is that you can count on free delivery from us if you order over $49 worth of our merchandise online.

Ordering from us is simple and convenient — customers can order online, via live chat, or by calling 1-866-979-7463.
