White paper looks at how intelligent workplaces can help boost productivity

A new white paper exploring how intelligent workplaces can boost the UK’s productivity has been published by Mitie.

The study analyses ‘Why the intelligent workplace is the missing piece of the productivity puzzle’, looking at the productivity problems facing the UK, and how creating intelligent workplaces could be a solution to boosting productivity and driving sustainable growth in the UK economy.

The latest figures from the ONS show that labour productivity in the UK is lagging behind almost all other G7 nations. For example a UK worker now has to work five days to produce the same output as a French worker does in four.

Academic research has identified a clear link between the workplace and people’s performance, with factors such as CO2 levels, lighting, humidity, temperature, space utilisation, movement and noise all impacting on employee productivity.

Mitie has been working with Red Bull Racing to optimise the working conditions at its factory HQ in Milton Keynes. Using custom-built sensor technology, Mitie monitors variables such as air quality, light levels, humidity and the effect on both machinery manufacturing processes and human performance.

Collecting this real-time environmental data provides Red Bull Racing with a better understanding of the working environments within its factory, allowing Mitie to optimise them for enhanced performance.

Mark Tyson, solutions director at Mitie, and Alan Peasland, head of technical partnerships at Red Bull Racing, will review the findings in a keynote speech on productivity and intelligent buildings at the Facilities Show, which is being held at the ExCeL in London on Tuesday 21 June at 12:40, in Theatre One.
