You Can’t Improve What You Can’t Measure: Why Technology Plays a Big Role in Occupant Wellbeing

As employees return to the office, building confidence in the spaces they inhabit is a crucial driver of the future of the workplace. It’s hard for employees to be productive if they’re constantly worried about the surrounding environment.

There has been a lot of discussions about HVAC systems, filtration and recommended measures in buildings that help improve overall air quality and mitigate the spread of viruses. But how can owners and operators promote transparency and share the positive measures they have taken toward improving indoor health and wellness?

From sensors and edge devices, to dashboards AND intelligent building platforms, technology can help measure and monitor indoor air quality, providing both operators and occupants valuable insights into the improvement initiatives they are undertaking.
