Home working solutions from iiyama

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about significant changes to the way we work, with remote and hybrid working becoming a norm. These new ways of working have allowed many employees to work from home, reducing the need for daily commutes and providing more flexibility in terms of work-life balance.

According to The Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA) Hybrid Working Index study, UK staff are now going into the office on average 1.4 days a week, compared to 3.8 days a week pre-pandemic. This highlights the significant shift as we focus on efficiency and engagement rather than a location. And workers are feeling the difference.

Flexible working has numerous benefits for both employees and businesses. It can increase productivity, reduce stress levels and provide a better work-life balance. Remote working can also be particularly beneficial for those who live far away from their workplace, as it eliminates the need for daily commuting. As for businesses, companies can tap into a wider pool of talent, not limited to geographical location when hiring.

However, with remote working comes the need for a reliable home office set up, including monitors, cameras, and speakers. Without these essential tools, remote workers may struggle to communicate effectively with their colleagues, attend virtual meetings and complete their work to a high standard. iiyama ecosystem addressed the challenges and the needs of remote workers with its home working solutions that offer functionality and quality.

Home office set up: monitors

A monitor is essential for a home office because it provides a larger and clearer screen than a laptop, making it easier to work on multiple documents. It can also help reduce eye strain and fatigue associated with working on a smaller screen for an extended period. But with so many options available, which monitor is the right fit?

Ultra-wide monitors

Having an ultra-wide monitor at your home office means business. So even before you start working, you get a feeling that this piece of technology is here to help you achieve your daily goals! If talking about the benefits of ultra-wide monitors, there are a few:

  • They provide a wider field of view, allowing you to see more content at once, which is perfect for productivity and multitasking.
  • You can work on multiple applications or documents side-by-side without having to switch between them, which can save time and increase efficiency.
  • They offer a more immersive experience when collaborating or having online meetings. They provide a wider and more cinematic display, which enhances the viewing experience and makes you feel more engaged with the content.

USB-C monitors

USB-C monitors are becoming increasingly popular for home office use due to their versatility and convenience. One of the key benefits of USB-C monitors is that they allow you to connect your laptop or other USB-C enabled devices directly to the monitor, eliminating the need for additional cables and adapters. They also provide power to your laptop, which means you can charge your device while using the monitor, making them a great choice for long work sessions.

Another advantage of USB-C monitors is their faster data transfer speeds compared to other types of monitors. This feature enables you to transfer large files between your devices more quickly and efficiently, which is especially important for businesses that require frequent file transfers.

Let’s not forget the design that compliments the one-cable set up at your home office. USB-C monitors are sleek and modern, so your space is no longer a cluttered eye-sore. They are mostly lightweight and thin, which makes them easy to move around or adjust as needed. Even further considering the needs of remote workers, USB-C monitors usually come with ergonomic adjustable stands that allow the perfect viewing angle.

USB-C monitors are an excellent choice for anyone looking to streamline their home office set up and boost productivity. With their ability to connect directly to USB-C enabled devices, provide power, offer fast data transfer speeds and look stylish, they offer a convenient and efficient solution for anyone looking to upgrade their home office display.

Home office set up: cameras

In today's virtual work environment, virtual meetings have become an essential part of business communication. As such, having a quality camera for virtual meetings is crucial. A quality camera ensures that you can be seen clearly by your colleagues, clients and partners, which can help you establish a strong professional presence.

A camera also provides a higher level of image quality, making it easier for you to read body language and facial expressions during the meeting. This can be particularly useful in situations where you need to pick up on subtle cues or gauge the reactions of your colleagues or clients.
