ESG & IoT Create Smarter Businesses

The rapid growth in capabilities of new technologies such as AR/VR, drones, robotics and the internet of things is accelerating the pursuance and performance of ESG.

There’s no doubt about it; businesses are becoming smarter. They are ramping up their environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies to score a win-win. They are increasing business profitability while boosting sustainability performance, building a strong social contract and embracing more progressive governance.

In a recent blog post we examined some global trends that are driving companies to focus on ESG, but we didn’t discuss the tools, techniques and technology that are helping to make it happen. This blog will discuss some of those tools and technology.

Over the next decade, technology will make it easier for companies to reduce their energy needs and carbon footprint. Renewable energy generation is skyrocketing, companies are investing in smart buildings and factories to reduce energy consumption … Read more...

Driving Hyperconnectivity: Four Ways to Build Strong Connections with Coworkers While Working Remotely

It’s commonly understood that people, well, most people, are social creatures. Of course, the degree varies from person to person and even within that, the preferences and “social meters” of each individual shifts and changes through the years.

Pretty basic, right?

The objective of this blog, however, is more than just to prove that being social is in our DNA, it is to provide actionable recommendations on how we can maintain relationships, particularly with those colleagues, in these “virtual times.”


The Rise of Remote Working in Post-Pandemic Times


Let’s start with providing context. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant changes in the business world has had a significant impact on the working structures of most organizations. According to some sources, 82 percent of businesses are adopting work from home structures. It’s quite a unique (and in some cases, challenging) situation. I can say that with surety as I’m speaking from … Read more...

Health & Safety is a Team Effort: Industry 4.0 and IIoT

 
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are forcing companies to rethink their approach to health and safety. Digital transformation uses innovative IoT endpoints and their data to improve the company’s core business, but they make health and safety more complex than ever. When properly deployed and integrated, sensors, endpoints and devices improve the individual safety of workers and identify additional areas for process improvement. 

More connected workers, more devices, more data — this massive influx of information and capability requires an end-to-end solution that addresses new and evolving EHS challenges. A solution that can capture the data produced from edge devices, analyze it and organize it in meaningful ways to improve health and safety programs and processes. Intelex Technologies and Honeywell are working together to create an integrated EHS solution that solves the challenges posed by Industry 4.0 and IIoT.  

The Number of Connected “Things”  

The global IIoT market will grow to $310 billion USD by 2023, and some of that growth will be from the increase in the number of “Connected Workers.” This means that the average industrial worker is going to be wearing and carrying multiple devices to help them do their job. Deployment, management and training … Read more...
