The latest research by Regus surveying over 20,000 senior managers and owners in business in more than 80 countries finds that worker's must-have desk items include non-spill mugs for the butter-fingered among them, cutesy tiny bears, stress balls and motivation charts for the more highly strung. More traditional responses are family photos, cherished by one in five respondents (18 percent), useful business cards (13 percent) and art work (10 percent) providing inspiration and perhaps some degree of escape from the daily grind.
