Can Headsets Make You Work More Efficiently?
One of the most noticeable advantages of using a headset is the immediate freedom of your hands! Wearing a headset allows you to continue typing, writing or even drinking / eating while engaging in a telephone call or virtual meeting. This can allow you to input data direct from the caller into your computer and easily make notes on the conversations. This immediate and easy transfer of data will help avoid any errors in the data, and can allow you to deal with the call in a quicker and more efficient manner.
Physical Issues With Handsets
Many of you will have experienced the muscle issues in your arms, neck and shoulders that come from picking up and holding a telephone handset for prolonged periods of time. This form of repetitive strain injury (RSI) even has its own name! Cubital Tunnel Syndrome comes from compression of the Ulnar nerve, which travels from your neck to your hand, and can cause severe discomfort.
In addition to this, if you are taking notes or inputting data into a computer, all of us will have used our shoulder to press the handset into our ear while trying to multitask, causing further tension in our shoulder, neck and upper back. Headsets completely eliminate these physical issues, not only ensuring that your team are physically healthier, but also more productive as a result.
We have all had meetings via the likes of Cisco Webex and Microsoft Teams in the past 18 months, and we have all had experience with a child screaming in the background of a call. Our most popular headsets completely eliminate background noise, meaning that you and your team can concentrate on the call at hand, and not what is happening in the rest of the house. Alternatively, if you are lucky enough to be able to work in the office from time to time, headsets can eliminate any noisy office environments from the calls. Allowing you and your caller to be able to focus on the tasks at hand.
It is undeniable that headsets, online virtual meetings and home or hybrids-working are here to stay. With this the use of headsets has become incredibly essential. It is so important that teams invest in high quality, built-for-business headsets to ensure you get longevity out of the products you purchase, while promoting a higher level of productivity across the whole team.
