Why should you consider upgrading to Headsets in your business?
Upgrading from desk phones to soft phones is a part of advancing in technology. The digital world is progressing year on year and if your office takes pride in what they do, then ensure you have the most advanced equipment to do the job. Not only will switching to headsets free up desk-space making for a tidier office, but it will also increase productivity, giving your employees more time to do more important aspects of their job.
Health and SafetyThe first one is health and safety, this isn't political correctness gone mad, this is fact! Lots of people still try and hold their phone between their shoulder and side of their head and over a period of time are far more likely to get some form of repetitive strain injury or R S I as it’s more commonly known. Oh and if you're a regular smart phone or mobile phone user and especially in office time on a works mobile, then the radiation emitted should be of concern so wireless headsets or wired headsets are a great alternative to having your brain lightly fried.
Aesthetics/PracticalityLastly is “aesthetics”, which always seems to play a part also. People care about how they look to others(more than they should!) and don’t want a headset getting in the way of that, even in a work environment. So once you've been told you have to wear a headset, it's then essential that you get the right type of headset that fits you and makes you feel comfortable wearing. So now you are hopefully better informed on the wonders of headset use, it’s now time to show you the different types of headset that should fit with everyone's expectations, practical considerations, preference and dare I say it "ego".
