Man, how did I ever end up being a director of an IT department after years of desktop support, software development, and managing networks? Clearly, I have no understanding of what a business IT environment should look like. ;-)
Maybe it's partly because I had the foresight not to get too tied to any single vender, - hardware or software (Apple included). Our office is 80% Windows computers. Most, but not all of the developers use Macs and we have various servers running linux. But we're clearly a bunch of unprofessional hacks.
Anyway, there are universal docking stations, - including ones for USB-C if you are so inclined. Some people like docking stations and over the years I have bought and installed many. I have used a few myself. Never been that enamored with using them or troubleshooting them.
Years ago, when I purchased my first Mac laptop to use at work, my Network Manager was baffled by the fact that I didn't get a mouse to go with it. "You spent a couple grand on that thing, it's OK spend a few bucks on a mouse". He was convinced that I was punishing myself to try and prove some point.
What he didn't understand was that even back then, on a Mac laptop, the trackpad wasn't some 2nd class pointing device only to be used when lacking a suitable mousing surface. It was big, supported gestures, and I could work with my hands never far from the keyboard. But he didn't get it because he couldn't get passed his preconceived notions. Now trackpads like that are common on many laptops. Still, some people like mice and that's fine.
Not every business is the same and if you're trying to support 5,000 or 50,000 people, maybe uniformity becomes extremely important. But honestly, being labeled unprofessional (in certain contexts) is almost a compliment at this point in my career. It's served me well.
