The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a paradigm shift in the way businesses operate. The traditional office environment, previously taken for granted, has come under intense scrutiny. With more employees now well-acquainted with the possibilities of remote work, the pressure is on for companies to provide not just attractive, but also safe and healthy office spaces. Urecsys recognizes this pressing need and offers a comprehensive solution.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY: MORE THAN JUST FRESH AIR
Bloomberg cites poor indoor air quality as one of the top environmental risks to public health. In this era, companies striving to bring their workforce back into office spaces must prioritize indoor air quality. A staggering 59% of office workers identify building cleanliness and air quality as their top priority, while 85% factor in the health of their colleagues and the building’s air quality. Addressing these concerns goes beyond mere compliance – it’s about building trust.
A HEALTHY BUILDING IS A BUSINESS ASSET
Gone are the days when health considerations in a building were seen as luxuries. The market’s expectation has shifted drastically. Tenants now actively seek buildings that prioritize air quality and other health measures. Case in point: prominent buildings are advertising their health-centric features, reflecting the increasing importance of such factors in tenant decisions.
THE WORK-FROM-HOME CHALLENGE
Contrary to popular belief, working from home doesn’t necessarily equate to better air quality. With homes not optimized for ventilation, employees might unknowingly be working in environments with poor air quality, impacting their health and productivity. Research from the Harvard Business Review suggests that cleaner air can boost worker productivity by 8%. This translates to a tangible financial benefit – up to a $6,500 increase in productivity per employee. Through improved indoor air quality, companies can offer an environment that truly supports employee wellbeing and performance.
CERTIFICATION AND STANDARDS: THE NEW NORM
Buildings have largely operated without much oversight concerning air quality. However, recent trends point towards a growing demand for third-party certification. Standards provided by organizations like WELL, Reset, WiredScore/SmartScore, and LEED are now becoming benchmarks. The focus isn’t just on compliance but also on continuous monitoring, measurement, and responsiveness.
Moreover, the growing emphasis on ESG reports compels real estate companies to prioritize building health measures. Transparency isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a demand from both investors and tenants. This transparency extends to healthy indoor air quality measures, further emphasizing its critical importance.
