Face-to-face interaction is the key in everyday life, so why miss out on the valuable connections you can make with in-person conversation? In the workplace, productivity is key and more of our daily activities can be completed at the desktop than ever before. It’s increasingly more common to email or instant message someone to get in touch with them in place of walking down the hall to chat in person. While these methods may be more convenient, about twenty-six percent of employers consider email to be a major productivity killer. Face-to-face interaction, especially in the business world, is what helps people be productive, cooperate, and stay connected. This type of interaction is an important tool that establishes trust, rapport, and helps to build a stronger and more meaningful relationship.
In healthcare, technology is evolving. Telehealth is becoming increasingly evident across the healthcare space, allowing for connectivity at any time from anywhere between care teams and their patients. Online portals, remote monitoring, and other health applications and devices are all aspects of telehealth that are making healthcare more accessible. In a hospital or small practice, reliable mobile communication between departments, care teams, and patients is crucial for a functional organization. With Grandstream’s wide range of solutions, any healthcare practice or facility can communicate between departments with ease.
Mobility in the modern workplace is becoming increasingly common and is a standard for office productivity. Flexible office spaces are becoming a trend in many industries, encouraging collaboration and the flow of ideas. When employees are given the freedom to move away from their desks for a change of scenery, both morale and productivity can increase dramatically. The way we use technology on an everyday basis has evolved to improve our collaboration with others both face-to-face and over communication endpoints. Mobile work spaces cut costs, increase collaboration, and improve communication throughout an organization. Even a communal work area of a few couches and a coffee table will allow for encounters outside of the generic cube setting that could end up generating the next big innovation.
