7 tips to improve the quality of your workplace

The McKinsey and the Steelcase suggested that productivity benefits from digitization have yet to materialise at scale for several reasons. Another KPI from Microsoft examined was engagement, or “flow”– the ability for workers to focus on the task at hand and deliver a better end result more efficiently. Overall, just 20% of respondents felt highly engaged at work, but there was a fourfold difference between engagement levels in businesses with strong versus weak digital cultures.
If you want to make your company more efficient, here you are 7 of the best ways to follow.


To help your company to be more efficient and to learn you how to save energy, for a better quality of life of the employee: here you are the 7 best ways.

1. Get a carbon footprint measurement: 

First, find out how big a carbon footprint your office is leaving behind. For example, some University in California, Pennsylvania or New York, offers a quick calculator for businesses that gives an estimate of how many tons of CO2 per year your office creates. iComfort is an all-inclusive software, dashboard or sensor that could be a good starting point.

2. Use IoT devices and sensors to improve the psycho-physical wellbeing:
Organizations are relying on connected IoT devices and sensors throughout their facilities to identify and enact steps that allow them to heighten their efficiencies and increasing occupant comfort. To use the IoT and another sensing tech – like a desk sensor – is fundamental to control lighting, the environment and other energy-consuming systems, so that when space is unoccupied: energy is not expended is responsible and efficient because we make a better workspace, more efficient and airy and bright.

3. Make your office smart: 
Monitoring how, when, and where your employees use office spaces to improve the quality of the employee’s life during its work.

4. Manage office space and office workspace:  
Manage space more efficiently through the use of shared spaces and hot-desking. So that the total square footage is used more efficiently and less space is needed per person. This can be done with space management software and sensors like iComfort such as smart furniture, combined with system integration, security and other systems.

5. Maximize heating and cooling:  
One way to make the most of heating and cooling is to recycle heat within facilities and maximize the efficiency of heating and cooling. With one all-inclusive sensor, like iComfort, is possible to identify a sector, spaces, or corner that could be not comfortable (too much cold or hot).

6. Educate employees: 
The first step to ensuring that your office remains green, “sustainable” and a great place to work, we need to get on track with regards to ethical eco-friendly practices. To educate your employees about their role in the issue. Everyone in the company needs to know about green initiatives in order for them to be effective. One way to get everyone involved is to set up goals and reward for the departments that reduce their carbon footprint the most. A successful business is based on your ability to function as a team. Once employees understand how much of an impact even the simplest of tasks may have in terms of protecting the environment, they'll be more likely to co-operate.

7. Keep track of energy usage:  
There are several companies that work to provide businesses with information about energy usage. Us a team who works on these themes from years, with iComfort we can offer you all of this: a combination hardware/software solution that identifies and creates an 'energy fingerprint' for every device in the building, and helps property owners/managers where and how to identify waste and reduce energy.

If you are looking for something to make a better life of your employee and your company, the iComfort suite is made of sensors that do not require any particular setup or installation: it’s simple and smart, they are placed under each desk and are ready to use. Facility managers can then monitor and obtain detailed statistics on desk and room utilization right from the iComfort Dashboard. 
Remember, each iComfort box does not require an IT infrastructure, it is all “plug-and-play” and managed from an online dashboard.
