Your Business is Better with Headsets

Today your business is everywhere and at any time – in an airport, a coffee shop or on the road – thanks to mobile devices. Using a smartphone, tablet or laptop, you and others on your small/medium-sized business team can make or take calls and even launch a video or web conference when there is a need for face-to-face communication or to share a screen with someone. In these situations and more, you have little control over your environment, so you need a headset to ensure audio clarity for you and your listeners, for conferencing, or for when you are driving. Even at the office, which, for many of your employees, might be a remote home location as part of…

Smarter Working – Technology

  Leveraging solutions that work seamlessly with employees’ needs. Technology with a single-minded purpose: A more human way to work Technology was meant to enable us, not hinder us. Unfortunately, the latter is often the case: a remote employee chasing a call, conversations dropping out and resurfacing, and high-pitched sounds coming out of nowhere. This can create inefficiencies, waste time, cause frustration, and add costs. With the Smarter Working approach, systems are integrated with the way people work to promote productivity. Today, technology is playing an increasingly purposeful, and more intuitive role in the way employees work—with flexible tools that serve people first. Moving with us comfortably and seamlessly, technology can act…

Smarter Working – Places

Designing and choosing flexible workspaces to inspire and help focus. Sometimes alone. Sometimes together. Always productive. Today, work is really more of a state of mind than a place you go to perform a task. More often, people need the flexibility to work anywhere—to be mobile and connected, to collaborate and be productive. It all comes down to preferred workspaces and work styles. In the office, an employee might choose to sit at an open desk area, or move to an enclosed team room, or a dedicated focus space. Or they might choose to work from home or a coffee shop. Whatever the choice, people are spending less time at a personal…

Smarter Working – People

  Keeping employees engaged strengthens the organization It’s never been more important, and more difficult, for people to be engaged in their work. Things move fast. People have more flexibility to work when they want.

Plus, engaged employees outperform their peers in terms of productivity, sales, energy levels, healthcare savings, and lower turnover rates. Smarter Working helps people be at their best The Smarter Working approach can help an organization enhance some of the…
