2024 Remote Work Essentials: Gear for the Modern Professional

January 15, 24

In 2023, nearly a third of adults in the UK worked remotely, full or part-time. There are advantages to this work environment, such as no time commuting or transportation costs. Remote workers also typically have more flexibility with their schedules.

Having the right gear is a must if you’re a remote worker. But where do you start? Let Targus save you time and effort finding remote work essentials. Here is a list of must-haves for remote work in 2024.

Docking Station

Most remote workers can’t have enough ports for their favourite peripherals and accessories. The problem is that some laptops and desktop computers don’t have enough connection ports to meet the needs of modern professionals. You can solve this problem by having a docking station.

Docking stations are small items that let your computer utilise a wide range of connections, including USB, HDMI, and Ethernet ports. A docking station can also help you use multiple monitors at once, which is excellent for those working in design and programming-related roles.

Working remotely often means spending time in meetings. Whether you have one-on-one or team meetings scheduled, it’s good to let people see and hear you with a high-quality webcam. Webcams are remote work essentials that are easy to set up, connect with your computer, and begin using.

However, ensuring your webcam works correctly before a meeting starts is a good idea. No one wants to be the person holding up a meeting due to webcam-related issues.

Tablet and Laptop Protection

You must protect your tablets, laptops, and similar devices even if you work from home. That’s why remote employees must have tablet cases and laptop bags. A tablet case helps protect your device from accidental drops. While you may work from home, laptop bags are remote work essentials for protecting your computer when travelling.

Spare Cables and AdaptersA picture of a USB-A to USB-C cable, which many consider a must-have item for remote work.

From a computer mouse to headphones, many tools you use to complete work feature cords and cables. So, it’s hard to deny that these cords are must-have items for remote work. Over time, losing an occasional cord or cable is understandable. Keeping spares handy can prevent the panic caused by missing cords and wires.

Targus carries all the remote work essentials you need to stay connected, including USB-A, USB-C, and USB-Micro cables. We also carry a wide range of adapters for maximum connectivity.

An Ergonomic Chair

Whether you work at home or in an office, you’ll likely spend long periods sitting in one spot. Unfortunately, many people use poor posture while sitting in non-ergonomic chairs. This seating arrangement can and often does lead to back and neck pain. Improve your posture while dealing with less body pain with a new, ergonomic chair. Then, you can spend long hours getting things done in comfort and style.

When you have the right gear, your work-from-home life can be much more productive and comfortable. Before you begin your next remote work project or job, use this list to ensure you’ve got our must-haves for remote work.
