What is it they say about change? The only thing constant about change is the change. And, it's certainly true when it comes to technology and the many trends introduced, expanded, enhanced and used the world over. What's the latest this month, may not in fact be the latest next month. Advances in everything from wireless, mobile phones, tablets, operating systems, software and the like keep making life and work easier in so many ways. Every business, regardless of size or industry, needs to not only stay ahead of its competition, but certainly ahead of the technology curve. While the speed at which these changes happen can be intimidating, a few good strategies, combined with the the right hardware, software, devices and platforms, will be invaluable.
Cloud Computing For Everyone
To the novice, cloud computing may sound like it's your information and data is just "out there" with no security up in the cloud. However, for knowledgeable individuals, cloud computing and storage can be a truly helpful platform, reducing the need to store onsite. It also provides more flexibility for working remotely. With a My Cloud storage device, employees can access their work whether they're on the job or out of the office. Storage devices, like all technology, keeps getting better, capable of storing huge amounts of data, with capacity expanding regularly. These devices offer plenty of space for files, whether they're simple word documents or large videos and graphics. Storage devices even feature integration for mobile apps to access information on the go. For those commuting to the office with public transportation, there's the opportunity to update or make changes to an important project on the fly. Work from anywhere is a dream come true!
Wearable Devices For Everyday
Wearable devices have become incredibly popular among consumers, with more and more people sporting fitness bands, heart rate monitors, smart watches and pedometers. While health and fitness should be on the mind of your employees, wearable devices now have much broader application than simply tracking calories and step counts. Devices such as the Striiv Fusion Smart Band feature call and text alerts, as well as other smartwatch apps to help people manage their day. The unobtrusive nature of wearable devices makes them a great complement to smartphones when it comes to managing simple tasks and information. Some Smartwatches, for example, give a heads up when an important message comes in. Smartwatch functions are continuing to evolve and should only grow more popular and useful in the future.
The Perfect Work Environment
One of the most important things to consider when it comes to keeping employees happy is making sure they have what they need at work to be their most productive. With new technology, individuals can customize their surroundings to enhance their comfort in the office. There are many products out there today that allow employees to adjust the height of their desks and seats to a preferred position. For example, sit to stand desk risers can make a huge difference. Having this flexibility for customized comfort can make all the difference in terms of productivity, employee morale and teamwork.
New and enhanced technology trends emerge all the time, and it can be difficult to stay ahead of the curve, let alone leverage them for your business. One idea is to have a brainstorming or idea session where the team can discuss some of the latest trends they've read or heard about. The group responsible for IT and systems in the company should also be included as "subject matter expert" to explain the benefits of each and why (or why not) they would work in your environment. But even the idea of collaborating about enhancing the workplace and environment with technology or other tools can be a great motivator for the team.
