MBOARD 870 BLUETOOTH MINI KEYBOARD
The new Mboard 870 builds on the success of the Sboard (Saturnus) range which has been a mainstay of our keyboard portfolio for several years. The 870 is a compact, elegant product which pairs with up to eight Bluetooth devices. Even geeks like me have trouble finding that many peripherals to connect at once! I use it regularly with my iPhone, iPad and laptop and occasionally use it with a Chrome book. I have also paired it with my car iPod and my wife’s telephone – just because I can! We would love to know if it is actually possible to find eight different devices for pairing so we shall give a free 870 keyboard to the first person who can send us a photograph of the eight devices they want to connect.
DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON SIT-STAND FURNITURE
The deliberately controversial title of last month’s blog created an animated debate and we had great feedback from contacts around the world. It is good to see that so many people are now coming to realise that this is a much bigger issue than simply replacing sitting furniture with sit-stand furniture. The item also generated the busiest ever day on our blog page. If you have not already seen it, the full article is here.
As you would expect, all our desk implementations include a full user briefing and our sit-stand installations follow a similar protocol to our chair setup and training procedure. We match this service with outstanding products. Initial responses to the new Motus Desk have been universally favourable and our first delivery is almost sold out. We are really excited about being able to offer a quality twin motor desk, complete with 4 memory controller and two-stage height range, for less than £500.00 + VAT.
THE HR TSUNAMI
Following the success of our first presentations, our next free Lunch & Learn session entitled Mobile Generations – the HR Tsunami will be in Bristol. Jim Taylour, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Orangebox, will talk about his latest research and I shall outline ideas to address the issues raised. Find out more and book your free place here. We had to cancel the recent London event due to a Tube Strike so we shall be scheduling another date soon.
In addition to our ongoing programme of regular events, we are creating a growing number of bespoke sessions for employers with geographically distributed personnel. Our first webinar was over four years ago and, in that time, we have gained lots of experience to ensure they are successful, both technically and in terms of targeted content. For further information, please contact Stuart Entwistle, our Training Manager.
