Data Driven Decisions to Create and Maintain Healthy Workspaces

The workplace has changed considerably in recent years and much of this has been driven by the Covid-19 pandemic. The health and wellbeing of employees is more important than ever before and that is because employees have expectations when it comes to the perfect working environment.

They are no longer satisfied with having to put up with a certain working environment because they are now more aware of their health and wellbeing. As they are now savvier when it comes to how the workplace impacts their health, they expect employers to go above and beyond to create an environment that is safe, healthy and comfortable.

Maintaining Healthy Workspaces

For many years, it has been normal practice to simply manage the workplace for what it is. Whether it’s the temperature of an office or a lack of fresh air, these were problems that were simply solved by turning on the heating or simply opening a window. All of these solutions worked in the short term but they still didn’t deal with the problem in the right way.

Much of this was down to guess work and of course, if it was possible to take the temperature of the workspace then the right measures could be taken to create a better environment but that was as far as it went.

We now live in a time where it is more important than ever to actively manage the workplace and the well-being of employees. There is no longer a need to use guess work to try and get things right because it is now possible to use real-time and predictive data to create and maintain healthy workspaces.

Implement Industry-Leading Systems That Deliver Results

Fortunately, technology has evolved to the point where it is now possible to make decisions based on real-time data. With the latest technology and products, employers can now install systems that allow them to manage their workspaces, ensuring that they are safe and healthy.

There is a lot more to the workplace than you might realise when it comes to taking control of health and well-being in your spaces. The workplace can quickly become unhealthy without you realising but you can take back control with solutions from Envelo. It’s not just about the temperature or fresh air that you need to monitor because air quality is hugely important and controlling that is no longer a difficult task.

When the air quality is poor, it can have a huge impact on the workforce and their well-being. Too many people in one space can cause Co2 levels to rise and that causes a drop in air quality and much more.

However, when you consider the whole environment, you can begin to get a grasp of how important it is to get things right. From the air, to surfaces and people, they all come together to create a certain environment.

As far as air quality goes, it is possible to use the right systems to enhance air quality, reduce the risk of infection from viruses and pathogens and create a cleaner environment. The surfaces in the workplace are one of the most common places where germs can spread. With surface protection, it is possible to reduce the transmission of pathogens and when it comes to people, it is possible to minimise overcrowding. This helps to improve air quality but also lessens the risk of infection.

The reality is that real-time data now gives employers control of how they manage their spaces. They can monitor and make decisions in real-time based on environmental factors. This will give your employees confidence in your workspace and the way in which their health is considered. However, why would you use real-time data to manage your spaces?

Data systems

Improved Productivity

When workspaces and the environment is considered unhealthy, it can have a serious impact on their productivity. Poor air quality can have an impact on productivity because it can affect the brain, causing confusion and a lack of motivation. Employees can feel fatigued and that can cause them to under-perform through no fault of their own.

However, once you gain control of your workspace by actively monitoring, measuring and managing the air quality, you can help your employees to feel sharper and more alert.

Fewer Sick Days

The reality is that poor air quality can lead to a whole range of problems and it can encourage the spread of infection. When you have too many people using the same space, Co2 levels can rise and the spread of infection can increase and that can lead to an increase in employee sickness.

This is also the same for surfaces that are not clean as they can harbour germs that can cause illness. When you implement the right systems, it’s possible to create a healthier place of work that helps to reduce sick days.

Create a Positive Environment

There are many benefits that come from managing your workspace. When employees are aware that you are constantly monitoring the workspace, they are going to feel satisfied that you are doing all that you can. When you factor that alongside the fact that they feel better and feel healthier and alert, it can create a positive environment that helps to improve productivity and morale.

Retain and Attract Talent

Employers have to compete to retain talent and attract talent. However, when employees know that you are doing everything possible to create a healthy environment, they will feel valued and appreciated and that can go a long way to retaining the talent that helps your business to grow. The same can be said when it comes to attracting talent as people are now looking for employers who go one step further to ensure that their staff are taken care of. What this means is that when you manage your work spaces in the right way, you can become an appealing prospect for new talent.

All of this highlights the importance of ensuring you manage your work spaces in the right way. With the right technology at your fingertips, you can make data-driven decisions to ensure you get everything right.
