In my last post I explained how display technology in lobby spaces can leave a lasting impression on visitors. But what about your employees?
The benefits of display technology in the workplace cannot be overlooked- it can impact the overall mood in the office and increase productivity, it keeps your team well-informed about events, and it can even help save lives in the event of an emergency.
Lobbies & entranceways
Let’s face it- for many, the monotony of walking into an office building every morning evokes a sense of dread. Look around and employees might see a bulletin that should have been updated 2 weeks ago and a static sign displaying the company name or logo.
If however, the first thing employees experience at work is an imaginative video wall installation or even subtle, calming scenes of nature on panoramic displays, I’m willing to bet that sense of dull repetition will fade, if only a bit. And there are countless studies showing that happy workers are more productive.
Display technology is an outlet for key information
As employees walk through the hallways, they may be greeted with framed photographs, directional signs, or maybe stark, bare walls. Digital signage can not only improve the ambiance of these spaces but serve an important function: company-wide notifications.
Today’s digital signage systems can be updated more quickly and easily than static signage and will garner more attention from those it is intended to reach. Digital signage can also help save lives in an emergency by informing employees to shelter in place or evacuate and by also providing clear directions for evacuation. Emergency messaging via digital signage is a vital component to disaster and workplace emergency readiness.
Display technology will always be practical
Video walls and large 4K commercial displays are now commonplace in conference rooms as they have become increasingly used in telepresence applications, helping organizations collaborate and save money. Likewise, huddle spaces are now a ubiquitous feature of office spaces.
While a standard whiteboard can only show what a dry-erase marker scrawls on it, interactive displays provide greater versatility and more opportunities for collaboration, incorporating video, complex blueprints, and multi-slide presentations. After these assets are discussed, annotated, and transformed, the work can be saved permanently for the team to reference in the future as they work toward their goals.
In short, display technology has become essential in the workplace. It enhances the atmosphere of workspaces and improves workers’ morale, safety, and productivity.
