With regards to voice activated technology, it's easy to imagine that being in a large
open plan office environment could be very distracting, not only for the workers who are
trying to complete their tasks,but if anyone needs to use the voice activated
technology, the noisy environment might cause the device to have difficulties
recognising the request of the user.
As such, some businesses might be considering returning to private
office spaces instead of the post-modern workplace design of open plan office
environments. Indeed, with private office spaces, you could tailor each room to the
unique needs of each individual. For example, a person working in IT might have two
monitors and some items of specialised modern office furniture, whereas somebody who
spends all day typing might have a specialised keyboard designed to reduce fatigue.
However, it is still important to recognise the advantages of open plan
office environments. For example, if combined with some acoustic solutions to mitigate
to nosy environment that is an open plan office, the voice assistant combined with the
office layout could potentially provide your business with a boost to productivity!
The Active blog has previously discussed open
plan offices and acoustic solutions. In this blog we examined some issues such
as keyboards tapping and phones ringing; discussing some strategies that may be used to
combat these sources of distraction such as phone booths and designated areas for
Voice Assistants Could Boost Accessibility!
One of the goals of office design and space planning is to
improve the wellbeing of employees working in the office environment. If you integrate
voice assistants into your working environment, the voice command capability could
improve the day to day lives of people in the office who struggle using technology,
either due to a lack of experience or a disability. The voice command may provide them
with the ability to utilise technology and perhaps even complete tasks that they may
have previously been unable to complete.
The Importance Of Designing Your Office For The Future
When designing your office and planning your workspace, it is important
that in addition to considering your business' current needs, you should also make sure
to consider any needs your business may have in the future.
Technology is quickly
changing, as such it is very important that your business' office is designed in such a
way that it can utilise improvements in technology that could be used to boost either or
both workplace productivity and employee wellbeing. Indeed, if you do not consider how
you can integrate the technology of tomorrow, your workplace could be left behind.
