These products make hybrid working a success
Working in distributed teams, with some employees on site in the office and others in the home office or remote work, will be the norm in many companies in the future. This leads to new processes and new forms of cooperation. However, hybrid working also places new demands on the individual work areas in the office and the home office workplace (read more about the changed demands on the hybrid office here).
As a multi-purpose space, the office must provide people on site with the right conditions for their respective tasks. At the same time, colleagues in the home office must also be professionally equipped. Last but not least, modern solutions are needed to enable collaboration between people in the office and in the home office. That's why we're showing you products today that no modern office should be without in the future and that will make hybrid working a success.
Equipment for the multi-purpose office
Modular furniture & multifunctional solutions
Quickly customisable furniture
Desk sharing is a model that is already being implemented in many companies. Instead of each employee having their own workstation, the existing workstations are used by the colleagues who are currently on site. This frees up office space that can be used for other purposes.
However, this also means that workstations can be used by everyone and must be quick and easy to adjust to individual needs. Electrically height-adjustable desks can be adjusted to the respective height in no time at all to ensure an ergonomic sitting position. Together with professional swivel chairs that can also be easily adjusted to the respective person, you create flexible workplaces that can be used by everyone.
Professional video conferencing solutions
One of the biggest challenges in the future will be to work efficiently with colleagues in a home office. Modern technology can make a useful contribution to this and enable collaboration as if you were in the same room. Professional video conferencing solutions not only transmit in high-resolution quality, but also improve the experience with additional features such as a 360° field of vision or automatic speech recognition that switches directly to the person who is currently speaking.
Equipment for home office and remote work
Mobile devices - smartphones, laptops, tablets
Employees equipped with mobile devices can easily switch between the office, the home office or the café around the corner at any time. All programmes for work are on the devices. Important documents can be accessed from any location via appropriately secured access points.
Which device is the most suitable should depend on the tasks of the employee. For all applications where performance is important, Apple products are the first choice.
Ergonomic furniture for the home office
Even when working from home, a professionally equipped home office workplace is needed. This is derived not least from occupational health and safety, which makes no distinction between office and home office with regard to the obligation towards the employer to provide an ergonomic workplace. The minimum requirement should therefore be an ergonomic desk with sufficient space and an ergonomic swivel chair.
