Keeping Healthy with 39 Degress Services Essex

The New Year is in full swing. Which probably means you’re back to work and have to suffer weeks of people parading around the office with their salads and detox waters. It’s quite easy to laugh at these ‘New Year, New Me’ dieters but maybe it’s time to consider your own health?

Unfortunately, computers are the cause of a number of health problems from weight gain to musculoskeletal problems. With 10 million working days lost to people taking time off for workplace-related ailments. 39 Degress Support Essex say ‘enough is enough.’

Providing business IT support Essex, the team at Ghost work closely with local businesses to install and maintain their computers and IT equipment. With these local businesses and their employees in mind. We have put together a list of tips and tricks you can use if you spend all day sat at your computer.

Give your desktop a second look – Do you sit with your computer directly in front of you? If so, it’s time to ask management for a raise – for your computer! The top of our computer screens must be level with our eyes. To the point where you are looking down at your computer about 10 degrees. Any lower or higher than your eyes, you will have to adapt to the screen height, causing neck and back aches.

Take a look at your posture – Unfortunately, we often forget about our posture when it comes to working. Getting especially worse throughout the day! Whether it’s sitting too close to your screen or not supporting your weight with your arms. This will put a strain on your neck and spine. Instead, try chin retractions (or making a double chin) throughout the day to keep your neck and spine lined up.

Give yourself regular breaks – Whether it’s checking their phone in the bathroom, or keeping up with the news on your computer. Everyone needs at least 5 minutes to take some time out. The Pomodoro Technique encourages employees to break their tasks into intense 25 minutes bursts with a 5 minute break. Helping to improve productivity and starve off distraction in the long run!

Will you be trying any of these tips in the future?

Safely Pack Up Your Computer

The Importance of Data Backup to Your Business When Moving Office

Whether you’re a small company still getting to grips with the business world or a multinational corporation with over 50 years’ experience, keeping your data safe and secure is vital. If it’s lost, you run the risk of it experiencing the detrimental effects to your company.

More and more businesses are switching to online data backup to ensure that valuable company information is safe from potential theft. Not only that, but having data backup online rather than a physical copy means that your information is protected from natural disasters should the unthinkable occur.

Here are the benefits that data backup can provide your business:

Protection

Data storage systems such as cloud storage can provide your business with additional protection should any theft or natural disasters occur. Also, this can be set up to back up files automatically which means you don’t have to do it manually. You can rest assured that every piece of data will be maintained.

Cost Effective

Of course, each business is unique. But what is one thing they all have in common? They are all susceptible to data breaches. If the correct protection hasn’t been put in place, even a small data attack can be detrimental to a new business. Online data backup is only a fraction of the price as setting up an individual system. This is massively appealing to new businesses wanting protection without making a large investment.

Restoration

Another benefit to online data back-up is in the event of a data attack, you are able to restore any lost information almost immediately after an incident has occurred. This means that your business will be able to get back to tip top shape as soon as possible.

The Importance of Updated IT Equipment

Updated IT equipment has distinct advantages ranging from security to customer satisfaction and operational efficiency. Whilst reliable staff and a great product are driving factors behind a company’s success, you still need to keep up with the ever changing advancements of technology.

Below are some of the reasons that highlight the importance of updated IT systems in the workplace.

Security – The older your technology is, the higher the security risk. Outdated equipment and servers can cause loss or corruption of data and they’re a lot more prone to crashing. In the long run, they will cost you both time and money and much more so than investing in modern equipment.

Flexibility – Slow systems and outmoded computers can cause frustration amongst many, including your staff. In turn, this could limit their productivity and prevent their flexibility within their job role. By having updated equipment and systems you will often see an increase in mobility and the ability to access your data on the go.

Professionalism – Your appearance to customers and potential clients can be vital in the growth of your business. The use of portable technology such as tablets and laptops can enable staff to remain attentive and professional beyond the restrictions of the office. Without updated technology your staff could suffer and become cut off from their daily work schedules.

Keeping up with competitors – Change is constant and you may think that your current systems are adequate, but with the shift in the digital environment you could find that this might not be the case for very long. By investing in new technology and information systems you will give your business an edge over its competitors.

Here at 39 Degress Services, we are able to not only offer you updated hardware but the remote support and security that sits alongside your IT systems. We have a range of IT solutions and being based in Essex means we are accessible to many locations. For more information, give our IT security experts a call today on 01708 390370.
