While only 9% of UK working-age adults in 1998 used computers at home daily, in 2006 that figure increased to 57% and again to 83% in 2013.

The ‘age of information’ requires business leaders, managers and other staff alike to improve on information processing power, versatility and multi-tasking ability to keep up with the demands of modern-day working life. Computers and the technology at large are getting faster, and ‘smarter' meaning higher-resolution screens and faster processors are available at our convenience at lower and more affordable prices.

Visiting the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is great for exploring how to improve office space

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of visiting the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas - attended by over 250,000 people over four days, CES is THE event for the technology industry.

How to set up an ergonomic workstation

Everyone is different
It may seem obvious to say so, but the human body comes in a wide range of shapes and sizes. It follows that the design of a workstation should incorporate a high degree of adjustability so that the user can easily adapt it to fit them.
