In this series of articles, we've been exploring the key role that scalable smart systems can play in the transformation of the office and how we use it—a transformation that the pandemic, with its paradigm-shifting remote-work regime, has done much to speed up.
We've explored how such systems can support the hybrid and flexible workspaces that will be a crucial part of the post-pandemic office. We've discussed, too, how connected systems support sustainable practices in office management. In discussing these themes, we've stressed that scalable systems let organizations deploy basic capabilities now and then supplement them with more sophisticated and comprehensive solutions in the future, in a way that provides both fiscal and practical benefits to organizations.
In this last article, we examine how smart systems can help ensure employee health and well-being as employees begin to return to working on-site—whether full time, occasionally, or something in between.
