Smart technology can transform your office into a creative space that will inspire and motivate, improve productivity, and boost employee morale. Here are tips to turn your boring office into a smart office:

Embrace flexible working

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced businesses to rethink their operations and flexible working has become the new normal. Flexible or agile working allows employees to work in a way that suits their needs, for example having flexible start and finish times, or working from home.

A flexible work environment offers many benefits to both businesses and employees. For employers, flexible working can reduce overhead costs and increase productivity. Employees also prefer flexible work environments.

In a recent survey, 59% of employees said “flexibility” is more important to them than salary or other benefits, and 77% said they would prefer to work for a company that gives them the flexibility to work from anywhere.”

Upgrade to smart lockers

Employee lockers are a must in agile work environments as employees have less personal space and privacy when compared to traditional static workspace solutions. 

Smart lockers are the perfect addition to flexible workplaces. They will support hot-desking and give your employees a dedicated and secure space to keep their personal belongings while working in the office. Staff can store their belongings quickly and then get on with their work activities without distraction. 

Upgrading to smart lockers is easy with eLocker’s retrofitting service and locker lock replacement. We can transform your old lockers into smart lockers in minutes, meaning you can upgrade your existing locker system without replacing your entire locker fleet – something that is expensive and unnecessary.

Technology has advanced over the years and ‘going smart’ is no longer just for large organisations and well-established businesses. Companies of all sizes can take advantage of new technology and transform their out-of-date office spaces into smart offices.
