Empowering people in the hybrid workplace: increasing productivity with Logitech products
 
powered by Sounder


Cultivating technology and products to meet the individual needs of workers is vital to enabling them to work proficiently. Plus, work shouldn’t hurt. Having the right tech and tools allows employees to do their job and complete work in comfort.
 
Comfortable work drives satisfaction and productivity, sometimes by more than 50%. But technology isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution.
 
Shelby Skrhak speaks with Mark King, enterprise sales manager at Logitech, about:

  • Differences in tech needs based on work location
  • Kinesiology and ergonomics
  • Tips to increase productivity and comfort

Technology at home and in the office

Regardless of where employees work, their expectations and roles remain the same. However, their technology functions can vary depending on where they log in.
 
When working from the office, certain items are optimized for a large-scale setting. For example, connection is often effortless and quick, having been optimized for use by many people.
 
This isn’t always the case when employees work from home. Connection may suffer in different areas of the home.
 
Likewise, specific tools and tech, such as mice and office chairs, may be standardized across an office while these items are carefully selected by individuals working from home.
 
Logitech has found that providing comfort and curated technology and tools is essential to increase productivity and satisfaction across the workforce, regardless of where they are working from.
 

Work shouldn’t hurt: kinesiology and ergonomics

Working can be difficult, particularly if the tools utilized do not meet the employee's needs. Employees should be able to work comfortably and leave without pain at the end of the day.
 
Unfortunately, many employees haven’t had the opportunity to choose the products they use during the workday. But those that have tried ergonomic products experience increased comfort. 8 out of 10 people that have tried these products never go back.
 
Enabling employees to work comfortably will look different across the workforce.
 
According to Mark, employee wellness depends heavily on:
  • The posture and sitting habits of employees
  • Usability of tech regarding personal preference and needs
  • Having the correct tools to assist in job performance
 The needs of an engineering team may look different than those of designers. Considering and adapting for these differences is crucial.
 

Supporting the bigger picture of work and wellness

Logitech goes beyond empowering employees with choice. They also highlight the importance of providing knowledge and education regarding healthy work practices, particularly in remote and hybrid work.
 
This is why Logitech puts serious effort into providing resources that assist employees in creating an optimized work environment, regardless of location or modality.
 
Some important tips that Logitech offers include:
  • Get up frequently
  • Set up your workspace in a way that makes sense for you
  • Give your eyes a break
  • Focus on posture and alignment
 Optimizing the workplace for employee comfort leads to leaps and bounds in productivity. Meeting the individual and team needs is vital in that movement.
