Based on the latest scientific evidence on office productivity, employee performance, a series of interviews with international experts in the field of acoustics and neuroscience, the report also presented concrete product solutions that can help provide the right acoustic conditions needed for extra productivity.
The coronavirus pandemic has led to quite big changes in working models, as well as in all areas of life. Tracking business processes online has also paved the way for working from home. While the working from the home model has caused some problems, hybrid working models have come to the fore especially recently.
The relationship between changing working methods and technology was one of the most significant themes in the report’s findings, titled “We Take a Closer Look at the Future of Work.”
Technology Investments Increase Employee Performance
The research showed that 80% of employees think technology has a positive impact on their productivity at work. The research revealed that two-thirds of executives see correlations between technology and their organization’s performance, and 54% of executives believe their organization should take a technological leap forward.
Another noteworthy topic of the research was productivity. According to the results; 33% of the employees stated that they felt less productive in the current home environment because they did not have the appropriate installation, tools and technology that would allow them to be more productive after working remotely for more than two months.
Acoustic Performance Should Be Improved Everywhere You Work
The survey also indicated that any firm wishing to attain a high-performing workplace following the coronavirus epidemic will need to rethink the acoustics wherever its employees spend their work time, according to one of the report’s conclusions.
The Importance of Video Communication Will Continue to Increase After the Pandemic
Bircom CEO Can İlkhan said, “The coronavirus has made working from home an option, which is possible in many countries, including our country. Working from home is easy due to the mobile business world, but in some cases, face-to-face or voice communication is still necessary. We provide professional solutions to meet the needs of companies moving from home to work environment with our video conferencing, audio conferencing and corporate headset solutions. For employees who want to live their homes in office order and quality, we strengthen their working environment by isolating employees from ambient noise and sounds inside the house with corporate headphones with Active Noise Cancellation,” he says.
Underlining that they anticipate that the importance of video communication will continue to increase after the pandemic, Ilkhan said, “For this reason, we plan to increase our Sunday share by expanding our investments and teams in this field. In this new order, some of the employees will continue to work remotely while some of the employees will continue to work from their offices. In this context, the demand for video communication technologies that perform business collaborations at the same time will also increase. Of course, it is impossible for us to leave the meeting rooms out of this system. Many institutions are either testing or trying to complete their purchases of room-based video conferencing devices compatible with the communication platforms they use to install these hybrid structures. In this regard, we continue to support institutions in the field, both in terms of demo and installation, together with our entire team. In the coming period, we will also have new initiatives aimed at meeting the needs of the sector,” he said.
