Tech Toys To Encourage Productivity In The Workplace
Technology is evolving rapidly and shaping the way we work, communicate and live. Within the workforce, new technological tools are constantly released boasting the ability to harness staff potential, engagement, collaboration and innovation. Introducing a variety of new gadgets can increase productivity but also has the potential to overwhelm organizational staff.
A recent study by Accenture found that among leaders surveyed, 55 percent battle information overload and 52 percent said that keeping up with rapidly evolving technology is a top challenge. With all this hyper-connectivity, how does one decide which gadgets are worth the time, effort and funding?
Vertical Technologies has compiled a list of recently released and innovative technologies to make work and life easier. These products boast convenience, ease of use and the ability to form a cohesive team environment.
