It's been proven that using a headset can not only boost productivity, but assist in the decrease of painful symptoms in the neck, back and shoulders and reduce symptoms associated with sitting for excessive periods.
With prices starting from £100 upwards, these clever pieces of kit allow you far more freedom to write notes and basically use your computer whilst talking on the phone.
You can walk around the office to locate files and documents in a nearby cabinet (moving up to 250 - 300m) away from your desk and even take a call whilst you are away from your actual phone.
Since the co-commissioning of research by Public Health England, we are becoming more aware of the link between certain diseases and prolonged sitting. Most office workers spending 65 - 75% of their working day sitting and research shows those that sit the longest could be twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A wireless headset will therefore allow you to roam away from your desk, stretch your legs and get the circulation going!
Headsets have improved tremendously in terms of sound quality and overall clarity. With the option of monaural or binaural headbands, you can chose to cover both ears so that you can block out any surrounding sound and truly concentrate on your caller.
Many receptionists who we work with, say a wireless headset has literally changed their working day. They are no longer chained to the desk and if they need to go and find someone or some paperwork whilst on a call they are free to do so.
So, improved health, multitasking and no more tangled curly cords. What's not to like?
