As we approach Q1, many business leaders will be evaluating the performance of their company and employees. As it has become clear that active, healthy employees are more productive, more reliable and more satisfied in their careers, it's only natural that this attention to health and wellness should be considered by all organisations.
With this in mind, ACCO is urging office product resellers to present Kensington’s workplace ergonomic and wellness solutions. The portfolio of Kensington’s products accommodates all types of work settings including hot-desking and home offices.
A 2018 research paper by Kensington, ‘Hot desking: How to maximise the benefits in the enterprise,’ illustrates the challenges businesses face due to flexible working environments and shows how using innovative solutions can help enterprises overcome these hurdles. With Kensington’s SmartFit sit/stand desks, workstations and universal docking stations, flexible working strategies can also harness productivity, and allow employees to be confident and comfortable as they live and work in harmony with the latest devices.
The paper reports that four out of five businesses have a hot desking strategy, and 50 per cent of desks will be ‘hot’ in five years’ time. Results from the research paper also confirm that the top pain point of hot-desking is ergonomics. Meanwhile, 80 per cent of respondents found technology limitations, especially hot desking connectivity, to be a top challenge. These results highlight the big opportunity for resellers to push the right products in line with these sought-after solutions for connectivity and health & wellbeing.
Kensington offers a solution, ensuring that no compromises are made to desktop productivity. Kensington’s Universal Docking Station offers both USB-C and USB 3.0 connectivity in one dock.
Kensington’s range of ergonomic and wellness products also helps to eliminate concern over transitioning to a hot-desking strategy. Kensington's SmartFit system lets each individual quickly and easily customise their work environment. The SmartFit hand measurement chart makes this possible. Users simply place their hand on the baseline of the hand chart, and the tip of the middle finger indicates their SmartFit colour. All the user needs to do is adjust the product to the correct SmartFit colour setting to achieve accurate adjustments and maximum comfort. Products from the range encourage correct posture; promote healthy back, legs, knees and ankles, as well as help fight fatigue.
Kensington’s SmartFit Sit/Stand desk allows employees to measure, adjust and fit the workstation’s pneumatic lift to the ideal comfort position and smoothly transitions the workstation from sitting to standing through a simple ‘quick release’ handle, perfect for flexible working environments.
