Each of these factors will play a key role in the future of the technical design of the workstation. The underlying electricity in all of this is a change in corporate mentality – instead of imitating the offices of the elderly, today`s businesses are looking for workplace solutions that increase the company`s most valuable capital: its employees. What does all this mean for the development of the technological workstation and, therefore, for the development of the wider employment organisation? A retrospective provides an overview of the future and in particular five themes that are likely to play a key role in the future of technical design in the workplace: resilience, community connection, choice-based experiences, the quality of the indoor environment (IEQ) and the Workspace Internet (IoW). LEED, WELL, RESET , Green Guard, Living Building Challenge (LBC) and many other evaluation systems have now become commonplace in the design of the workstation. In recent years, many technology companies have also developed their own internal standards for certain items that they believe deserve further development. Given the progress in air monitoring and ongoing research, which is studying the impact of IEQ on cognitive function, it is likely that materials and air quality will be brought up again. Manufacturers will be held responsible for the ingredients used in material development, designers will stop specifying products that refuse to comply, and the industry will adapt to a free reality on the red list. The B.C. government is promoting a large multi-year contract to provide it services to all health authorities, despite a campaign to change procurement policy to give B.C. companies a shot at such contracts.
While the size of the office has continued to grow and expand, the terminology formerly used to describe cities has been applied to workplace programming. Parts of floor slabs have been divided into quarters that each have their own identifiable emblem, coffee and identity. Employees could now spend their day meeting between neighbourhoods to choose their preferred work environment or eat in another café. Finally, the neighbourhood concept would be extended to laundries, massage tables, spas, medical clinics, salons, fitness centers and daycares. All your needs were met in your “city” (also known as your workplace) so you rarely had to leave your office during working hours. This concept was very successful because workers were happy to have easy access to services and employers benefited because workers would work longer or be more productive in their jobs. However, there are drawbacks to the development of the city and offices, the most important of which is that retailers and service providers in the local community are seeing their turnover decline with the development of these internal ecosystems. To deal with negative effects like this, cities like San Francisco are now trying to pass laws that ban amenities like coffee shops in offices. Today, most people are familiar with the Internet of Things (IoT), a term used to describe thermostats, smart speakers, lights, locks, even vehicles that are all built to be connected via the cloud. As we approach our house, the doors open, the lights come on to our favorite position, and the oven starts cooking tonight at dinner. Internet of Workplace (IoW) builds on this concept by linking all things within the workplace. Imagine conference rooms that change their acoustic characteristics, lighting and layout to suit the type of meeting planned; Notifications informing employees to take stairs when an elevator is not available; Find a path that happens in real time and is customized to direct the workforce to a desired location.
All of these examples show the potential benefits of IoW. “In its technology platform,
