We've all suffered bad days at the office. Maybe your favourite hot-desking spot was occupied, or the office was too cold, and the strip-lighting above the spare desk was too bright. Also later, you struggled with a meeting room's audio-visual equipment before an important video-conferencing session, and the resulting stress meant you didn't perform well.
Digitization has changed our lives and our behaviours, the diffusion of new technologies has favoured the introduction of new ways of working, as smart working. The culture in iComfort start from multiple experiences in contact with a small, medium and big organization whose are conscious that the power of people is the energy of all business.
Thankfully, not every office actively conspires to ruin your day. The fact is that the design and management of workplaces has a profound effect on the productivity, creativity and engagement of those who work in them. It is a fact that satisfied and happy people work with greater enthusiasm and efficiency: well-being at work and productivity go hand in hand and are essential ingredients for company growth. In this context, the role of HR is fundamental to accompany and successfully introduce change.
In this context, companies' awareness of the importance of human resources as precious capital in which to invest has grown. Companies must, therefore, be able to manage the different priorities and different points of view, providing the right well-being for all.– So, can the 'smart' office, bristling with IoT sensors and AI technology, help to improve things? Or is the 'smart' component as much to do with creating a congenial and well-managed work environment as it is with deploying cutting-edge technology?
From our experiences, there is not only one correct solution: the IoT and IA at work, today and in the future, should be a must. Thanks to a different sensor and one software “all-inclusive” we can help you to improve the efficiency of your team and the productivity of your company. From our experiences and works, later, were born new ideas. The new configuration of the space must encourage spontaneous interaction and therefore relaxation areas, informal meeting points such as cafeterias and, where necessary, spaces dedicated to a concentration where people can work without being interrupted. In this context, furniture plays a fundamental place, it must be flexible and reconfigurable to adapt to the needs and activities to be carried out. Also, it must support spontaneous interaction, it must encourage movement and therefore allow the alternation of sitting postures and upright postures.– So what can we learn from the experience of those that try?
To pursue the culture of "Healthy Working" we must focus on a working strategy that considers spaces, organization and corporate culture, implementation of technologies, but also support people. iComfort is a complete IoT platform and dashboard that allows companies to enable smarter and better workplaces by measuring key parameters for well being in real time.
Companies must, therefore, be able to manage the different priorities and different points of view, providing the right well-being for all, because the perfect workplace is comfortable, the temperature is regular, lighting is good, noise is low.
