Communication devices for
the home working professional

This version of the wordmark can only be
used at this size. It has a larger registration
“ Home working in all its forms
is here – and here to stay.”
‘Home workers’ come in many different varieties, and there is now no single
definition of who they are. For some workers, such as part-time or flexible
employees, the home workplace is simply an alternative to the office. For others,
such as the ‘smart’ working self-employed, the home serves as a central ‘hub’
while they’re out and about. And for the self-employed creative, media, IT and
phone-based service workers, the home is the sole workspace.
Whatever shape it takes, there are many organisational benefits of home working. However, these
are often ‘lost in translation,’ and many companies have yet to come to grips with the variety of
home workers or to capitalise on the many business opportunities that home working presents.
“My home is my office.”
What is undeniable is that, around the globe, mobile and home working practices are here, and
they’re here to stay. The US leads the world in the number of professionals taking up the new
way of working. Worldwide, the mobile worker population is to increase to more than 1.19 billion*,
or 35% of all workers, and more than half of the Western European workforce will no longer be
strictly office-based by 2013. And as Southern European countries shift to more services-based
economies, they will also increasingly need to adopt technologies that enable home working.
Home-based professionals can’t afford to be disconnected from
the office, or out of reach of their colleagues. They need to be
permanently visible to the business and have constant access to
office-based information and resources. This means they depend
on reliable network connectivity with e-mail, internet and all the
applications available to everyone else back at headquarters.

Home workers therefore need tools that are straightforward to install, easyto-use and offer top-quality phone and networking capabilities. They need to
simplify call management across multiple devices and keep their colleagues
informed of their availability so they can be reached easily. And they need
ergonomically designed devices that work with them.
Because their office is also their home, home-based professionals don’t want
bulky equipment or cabling that clutter their personal space. They also want
to take advantage of the fact that they are telephone-based and can have both
hands free to engage in other tasks while on the phone. Long hours on the
phone mean that comfort and posture are also important considerations.

Hear and be heard
In the absence of face-to-face meetings and body language triggers, the right headset is a
necessity to help the voice have maximum impact and be clearly understood – regardless of
working location. Clarity of voice and intelligibility is vital to projecting a good impression every
time, while maintaining a high level of professional exchange and conversation.
We’re communicating more
Business has never had more to say or more ways in which to say it. According to a recent
study for Plantronics, up to 69% of employees said they were using audio and web conferencing
far more frequently – for brainstorming, collaboration, planning and presentations.
And it’s no surprise that high levels of background noise negatively impact a call. So make
every call sound like you’re in the office. Plantronics’ headsets are a crucial component of home
working and guarantee the very best call quality available today.
Enjoy smarter conferencing too
Imagine a smart application that identified conference calls in your diary, while allowing you to
automatically dial in and join a meeting with just one touch from your Android or BlackBerry
phone. And if you are disconnected, you can simply reconnect in an instant. No need to
remember the moderator ID number. No more misdialling. And never being late for a conference
call again.
The Plantronics InstantMeeting™ is a powerful, multi-platform app that enables quick, intuitive
conference call access, so mobile professionals can focus on the task at hand: communication
and collaboration whilst on the move.
69%
of respondents said that over
the last five years, they were
using audio conferencing far
more frequently*
