Hardware for a Government 2.0 World

Due to red tape, shrinking budgets, and its massive size, government agencies often find themselves at the tailend of the innovation train. Slowly but surely, however, we are seeing that lag begin to shrink as government agencies become more and more immersed in cutting-edge technology, which they’re using to solve problems big and small. The notions of efficiency, productivity, transparency, flexibility, and technological savvy are the new pillars of a Government 2.0 world, and technology is leading the way.

However, innovations on the hardware side of the equation have been slower to transform. While professionals in the private sector are using the best equipment available, many government workers are still operating on clunky, outdated technology. That puts government workers at a greater risk for developing Repetitive Strain Injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -- not exactly the best way to power innovation.

As our government agencies become efficient, agile machines, we should be doing it on the most innovative hardware that empowers government workers to be creative thinkers. That’s where Goldtouch and our full suite of cutting edge products come in.

But there's a bigger moral to this story. The simple truth is that employees that are happy and comfortable tend to be more productive. In fact, more than 90% of business leaders say that promoting wellness in the workforce can affect employee productivity and performance in a positive way.

It's simple to start. Let us show you what a Goldtouch Pilot Program could do for your agency. Just fill out the form below and a Goldtouch Enterprise Specialist will be in touch.

How RSIs Get in the Way of Government Innovation

strain-300w

Governments today are empowering their citizens like never before with cutting edge technology and responsive programs. But the entrepreneurs who are creating this innovation for the citizenry they serve are often working on traditional flat keyboards. Doing so forces the typist’s hands to splay outward, straining the muscles and inflaming the wrist’s carpal tunnel. The pain of such injuries as well as time off needed for costly corrective surgeries significantly impacts the worker’s organization in the following ways.

Lost Productivity & Decreased Creativity

A government worker who’s in pain simply doesn’t produce as much. They have to stop more frequently to take rest breaks. Often, they compensate for their pain by typing in ways that are both inefficient and can create deeper injuries in the long term. Injured workers also have more trouble thinking outside of the box, as they’re distracted by debilitating pain.

High Absenteeism Rates

Workers with RSIs are absent an average of 23 days each year and account for a vast number of the some 460,000 carpal tunnel release surgeries performed annually (National Center for Health Statistics). Workers who are absent frequently fall out of their groove and get behind. Individual absenteeism can also put undue burdens on the rest of the team, as other team members struggle to take on their workload.

Lack of Loyalty

The most innovative agencies within our government know something that the rest don’t: employees perform better at work when they feel cared for. Providing employees with ergonomic equipment rather than forcing them to work through pain will make them feel supported, understood and empowered.

Why Efficient, Hard Working Hardware Matters

In the government sector, efficiency matters. This means getting the most out of each individual and out of every piece of technology possible. Still, while it may seem like hanging on to old equipment is a cost-saving approach, it's counterproductive if that equipment causes harm to workers. Investing in new ergonomic equipment means investing in workers themselves and stretching precious budgets.

The Split Keyboard That Changed It All

The revolutionary Goldtouch line of ergonomic keyboards operate with a simple principle in mind: the idea that each worker’s keyboard should conform to fit them.

Patented ball & lever system for a customized fit: Just pull the keyboard apart in the middle to enjoy a split keyboard typing experience that keeps wrists in a neutral position. With a full 0°-30º of adjustments offered, just one keyboard can be made to fit anyone in the office.

0°-30º of vertical tenting: No more straining wrists up or down.

Easy touch keys: Keys on Goldtouch ergonomic keyboards areoptimally placed and can be easily depressed, so typists don’t over-reach or over-press keys.

A More Supportive Mousing Experience

At Goldtouch, we carry a wide range of mice for hands of all sizes.

Full support for wrists and hands: Goldtouch ergonomic mice provide ample support during active mousing and during respite periods.

Easy reach buttons: With a Goldtouch mouse, you won’t have to struggle to reach the buttons.

Choose your approach: For more adventurous mouse users, we also carry a wide range of vertical mice, which guide users into a handshake position. This decreases pressure on the hands and wrists, lowering the risk of developing an RSI.

Monitor Arms and Tablet & Laptop Stands That Get Height Right

Most office workers operate with their computer screens at a level that causes them to strain their necks up or down. This can create back, shoulder, and generalized upper body pain. It can also lead to the development of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), symptoms of which include blurred vision, eye fatigue, headaches and more. Laptops can be particularly troublesome, as the attached screen and keyboard make it impossible for the user to place both the keyboard and the screen at their ideal heights. Thankfully, these problems are easily fixed.

Laptop and tablet stands: Bring the laptop screen to the right level to keep necks in neutral positions. Best paired with a Goldtouch ergonomic keyboard and mouse.

Monitor arms: For desktop users, monitor arms help each worker find the perfect height and distance for them.
