6 Workplace Gadgets to Boost Your Employees’ Productivity

While it's true that material things can't make people happy, there are some instances when they can make our lives easier. It's very obvious at a workplace - people waste precious time on certain activities and get annoyed while it could be done much faster if they had the right gadget for it.

So, a little investment in workplace gadgets may brighten up your employees' mood and boost their productivity - a good reason enough to check out the following gadgets:

1. Stress-reducing wristbands

Gadgets that reduce stress are not new on the market, but they have come a long way. The latest invention, a stress-reducing wristband, is better than the previous versions because it reacts in real time. In other words, it can tell when your heart rate is elevated because it checks your pulse on your wrists. It then instantly starts a rhythmic vibration that calms you down. It is also possible to set up personal preferences and is quite simple to use. Of course, if you think that it's too much for your budget, you can always opt for an earlier version.

2. Portable 3D projector

Too many hours a month are lost on inefficient meetings. Even though many meetings don't have to be held, some things can't be said over the email, so you could try to make those meetings more effective and make your employees happy. A portable 3D projector allows you to hold a meeting wherever you want because you will be able to set everything up in less than a minute. Not only the meeting will be shorter but the employees will also feel the monotony is broken if the meeting is held at another place each time.

3. Voice command lamps

Having lamps that react on your voice command at all the right places is a great thing. The new voice command lamps have really moved on to the next level - it's not just that they can be turned on and off at the sound of your voice but you can also adjust the intensity and positioning of the light with your voice. Some lamps even come with integrated web cameras, too, which they use to optimally adjust the light in the room. Not only that but they are also able to memorize your preferences, which saves you even more time.

4. Personal tablets

Every employee would love to get a personal tablet. Depending on your line of work, many employees find it quicker and more effective to use their personal tablets to deal with certain issues and obligations. More and more entrepreneurs are browsing for handy electronics at Personal Digital to improve their employees' productivity, and personal tablets are at the top of their lists.

5. Wireless charger

There isn't an office in the world that needs more cables all around. Phone chargers are definitely annoying because they make a mess and they force the employee to leave their phone away from them while charging. This may seem ridiculous but having a wireless charger in the office will definitely contribute to the efficacy, speed up some things and remove the necessary cables. Your employees will appreciate being able to take their phones with them at all times.

6. Desk extension pad armrest

Prevent the pain in your employees' joints - many people hold their arms in improper position, so this gadget will enable them to adjust their arms to a proper height while typing. A proper position of the arms also increases the typing speed and overall movements.

Final comment

There are many gadgets on the market that could be put to a good use at a workplace. Invest some money from time to time in some of them and you'll notice the change in productivity and mood with your employees.
