Fancy an extra month’s productivity for $300? Get two monitors.
A good quality monitor really makes a difference to the productivity and comfort of your staff. If your staff are comfortable working on the computer system, with no eye strain, they are going to be much more productive and will require less time away from the computer screen. Excellent quality monitors are no longer as expensive as they used to be, and these days you can get amazingly beautiful 24″ displays for under $300.
While a large, bright, and ergonomically positioned monitor is the first starting point to comfort, two monitors increases the productivity of an employee significantly. People who use two monitors are more productive on average one hour per day; see this article here for studies.
Let’s do the maths:
- An extra hour’s productivity per day is 5 hours a week
- This equates to 260 hours a year..
- ..which in turn equates to a whopping THIRTY TWO DAYS per year
All this additional productivity waiting to be tapped in to, all for the cost of an additional computer monitor. What business manager or owner wouldn’t want that, for a once off cost of less than $300?
If you’re buying a new computer system, we highly recommend to purchase it with decent quality monitors. It’ll make the world of difference, and you’ll be saving yourself plenty of time and money in the long run and your staff, and business, will be better for it.
