Commercial environments across the world are increasingly adopting activity-based working (ABW) models to foster greater interpersonal engagement amongst end-users. And what’s more, they appear to be doing this en masse.
August 29th, 2018
According to Telsyte’s 2015 landmark study, ABW-optimised workplace design holds the potential to increase end user productivity by an approximate 16 per cent. As such, it is little wonder more than one third of Australia’s commercial employers have incorporated ABW design thinking into their workplaces.
Giving greater control back to workers to determine how they work best according to any given task at hand, such corporations have noted that with more daily roving, as well as a variety of different spaces and tools at hand, the benchmarks for their duty of care have shifted. Now tasked with ensuring that no matter what space an individual will select for completing a task, workplaces must deliver design schemes that guarantee end user wellbeing and efficiency holistically.
Understanding these pressures, Zgonic‘s approach to mobile working solutions puts the end user’s wellbeing at the forefront of the design process. Zgonic‘s award-winning monitor arms adopt a simplified, intuitive approach that are not only adjustable for optimal viewing, but are also an absolute cinch to install. The brand’s entire portfolio of products offer workers the opportunity to integrate all mobile and workstation devices into one system, allowing them to plug-in and work from anywhere, anytime, and in any way they prefer.
Whether as an additional tool for individual workstation systems or for shared collaborative set ups, Zgonic‘s Zbridge monitor arms lift laptops and monitors above the desk surface to permit additional working space. While its adjustable features ensure that end users can avert poor physiological postures, Zbridge’s improved viewing angles offer supreme ergonomic support coupled with a promise for greater efficiency.
Elsewhere, the brand’s latest offering, Z1, combines all the high-performance characteristics, technology and functionality of Zgonic‘s proprietary Zgo Monitor Arm, in a newly intuitive and lightweight form.
Seeking to restructure to a point of absolute streamlining, Z1 takes design thinking to a new frontier that will not compromise on functionality. With responsive counterbalancing technology to offset variable equipment weights, Z1’s compact form, accessories and maximum capabilities ensure that we are all empowered to customise our place of work to our personal quirks and strengths.
