New Keyboards, Mic, Webcams and Microphones Offer Surprising Value
– JLab is turning up the volume on the overlooked work-from-home category by expanding its signature innovation with surprising value to its new Work Collection of keyboards, mice, webcams and microphones. Studies have cited that the shift to remote work during the pandemic has brought a heightened level of productivity among office workers, and a recent Gallup State of the Workforce study found with 70% of workers would prefer a hybrid office arrangement in the future. To satisfy the diverse and evolving needs of the work-from-home contingent to a neglected category, JLab’s new peripherals computer peripherals include mice and keyboards that seamlessly switch between three devices further evolving to today’s evolving work-life blending.
“The work-from-home category has had very little innovation in the last 10 years, which is very surprising in light of how people prefer hybrid office environments and the number of businesses accommodating this shift. JLab is injecting new life into the productivity category with our new Work Collection, providing a range of innovative options that include our signature level of innovation and surprising value across a range of price tiers,” said JLab CEO Win Cramer.
According to a survey by Global Workplace Analytics, remote employees are the most successful when they have the tools they need on hand at their home to do their job. Still, employers are often not required to provide support or reimbursement for equipment to create first-class and productive remote-work environments. JLab’s new Work Collection follows the same direction as its previous introductions by providing leading-edge features at tiered-price points with specific user groups in mind.
