How To Improve Workplace Health and Comfort.

Health and comfort in the workplace is critical to productivity
Comfort and productivity go hand-in-hand

Workplace managers are challenged to provide a rich set of secure and resilient services to office users. These services include optimizing office maintenance and ensuring the best possible comfort for employees. A focus on employee health and well-being achieves business targets and improves the competitiveness of the company.

Offering a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for employees is key to increasing their productivity and satisfaction.

Office spaces that are optimized based on occupancy have shown improvements in productivity. The use of sensors for lighting and occupancy in offices has been discussed as far back as 1995. The advent of internet-connected devices and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies enables workplace managers to remotely monitor the office’s assets and environment.

Remote monitoring functionalities can help with monitoring physical parameters, like noise, the temperature of the various spaces, the quality of the air, the occupancy of rooms, and the condition of the building’s equipment.

Small changes can make a big difference. For example, workplace managers can control air stratification by dropping high-temperature air from the upper levels and mixing it with cooler air at the lower levels. Noise levels are the main source of discomfort in modern office workspaces and can easily be controlled with updates to the office design and furniture.

Leveraging technology and insights can help managers make the right decisions to quickly optimize the workplace.
