How to Use Technology to Make a Better Workplace

How to Use Technology to Make a Better Workplace

In recent years, employers have offered more ways for employees to customize how they see their work environment. These extra features can often go a long way toward improving their productivity and comfort in the office, but they are often held in check by the problems that such technology can create. A smart office was created with the purposes of keeping these technological shortcomings from crippling employee productivity.

What Is a Smart Office?
A smart office takes the concept behind improving an employee’s workspace and applies it to the technology found in your office. Basically, technology should be used to make the workplace a better place to be, where an employee can feel both comfortable and productive. Cloud computing has already made great strides in helping companies create this environment, as well as other innovations in mobile technology, big data, and the Internet of Things, just to name a few. But how do these technologies help your organization improve the quality of the workplace? Essentially, smart technology provides a two-fold benefit to your organization: they make use of the aforementioned innovations, while also enabling employees to work in a smarter way.

Why Build a Smart Office?
A smart office can be a great way to provide several benefits for your staff--especially if you are a small business that can make changes relatively on-the-fly. Here are some of the best ways that a smart office benefits a business.

  • Improve the user experience: A smart office makes working much easier and more enjoyable, improving the user experience. Employees that are both happy and healthy are more likely to work harder and stick around for longer. Plus, attendance in the workplace is more likely to improve if the work that they are doing is engaging.
  • Encourage collaboration: Flexibility is incredibly important for the smart office. This gives the employees working within the freedom to create their own “dream office” of sorts, giving them leave to shape their work experience accordingly. This can provide employees with the freedom to collaborate as they see fit, changing environments in whatever way that is needed to facilitate optimal productivity.
  • Optimize the office design: Smart IT is often both visible and hidden in the background, improving the functionality of your office. Many companies have used the Internet of Things to aid with energy efficiency through the use of smart thermometers and lights, adjusting the settings as needed to ensure that they favor your bottom line.

Does your business want to take advantage of smart technology to improve the office experience? NTConnections can help. To learn more, reach out to us at (703) 288-9767.
