A few month ago, I was talking to an individual in Chicago about setting up kiosk charging stations to put in coffee shops, and other high-traffic public places which would charge up personal tech devices for free. And while they were charging, the individuals would be watching a TV screen with videos, and commercials. Obviously, they wouldn’t want to leave their personal tech device out of their site very long, so they would have to at least stand close by the charging station, and therefore subjected to various commercial messages. Okay so, let’s talk about this for second, because I have a better idea.
Well, my idea might not be better from a commercial advertising, marketing, and branding standpoint, but it surely would be in the world of corporate human resources. You see, it makes sense to have electric charging stations in the offices of all corporations. Why you ask? Because people take their personal tech devices to work with them, but unfortunately they get on these personal tech devices, and a waste of productivity of the company.
They are busy text messaging their friends, and looking things up online. If you are paying someone on the clock, and they are doing these sorts of things, then they’re not doing the work for your company, and if they are multitasking, they aren’t giving it their full attention.
Further, I think by now we all know that when people text message they are not good at doing other things, such as driving for instance, there’s been a big public outcry of all the pedestrians, car accidents, and bicyclist run over by people text messaging while driving. Indeed, I live out in one of the resort desert cities in California with palm trees everywhere. If someone runs off the road as they aren’t paying attention while text messaging, they generally run into one of these palm trees and kill themselves. The palm trees don’t move.
By having the individuals who work in your office surrender their personal tech devices for free charging, this means they aren’t in their hot little hands, therefore they can’t text message their friends. Thus, it seems like a good idea to give away a little free electricity in the office to help charge everyone’s personal tech devices while they are working, and this will also simultaneously increase productivity for your company. Indeed, I hope you will please consider this potential eventuality to increase the productivity in your company or small business.
