Update: Prime Day 2021 is done and dusted, so the deals below are no longer valid. Check out our ZDNet Recommends hub for a better look at the latest deals available -- including roundups of the best products for businesses and professionals.
A consequence of theis that , either permanently or as part of a flexible model, is now far more common than pre-pandemic requirements for employees to be in the office most of the time.
Businesses that are now adopting hybrid working models have changed, but so has the purpose of our homes. With the line between home life and work now blurred, a home office is no longer seen as a luxury, but rather a necessity.
Now is the time to make sure you have a home office space that is as comfortable as possible -- whether this is a full set-up in a dedicated room or a budget-friendly corner with a few select space-saving items.
To help you kit out your home office and take advantage of Amazon Prime Day bargains, we have compiled a list of the top deals during the event, ranging from computer desks to cushions, chairs, and VoIP equipment to improve video and audio quality for your remote meetings.
