Of late I’ve had numerous flashbacks to reciting the Greek alphabet ten times holding a lit match between my fingers, one of my college fraternity’s more absurd pledging rituals. With Omicron rapidly spreading throughout the country and the Delta variant causing a surge in hospitalizations and deaths, Covid’s burning match still has nine Greek letters to go. Public health concerns, accompanying business uncertainty, is beginning to look more like a burning torch.
Several major companies have once again delayed reopening plans, holiday travel bookings have rapidly gone from robust to uncertain, of course all of it putting restaurant traffic at risk. Only the bold dare predict how these next few weeks will go, but even if most businesses proceed with scheduled return to the office, patrons pack airplanes, hotels and restaurants, the other burning matches of stubborn supply chains and labor shortages compromise hospitality’s ability to accommodate guests. Although every responsible organization has emphasized hygiene and safety, anecdotes and evidence show a considerable majority does not think these efforts have gone far enough. Recently released Continental Automated Building Association (CABA) research offers far more than helpful insights, CABA findings provide a compelling forward case. Consider:
- 91% of the surveyed rank indoor environmental quality as important for preventing covid
- 76% state they’d feel more comfortable entering a building with an indoor environmental quality rating
- Enterprises adopting the right, smart, integrated technologies inspire greater employee and patron confidence.
Independent laboratory testing proving bipolar air ionization neutralizes coronavirus by 99.9% more than suggests it’s an essential indoor environmental component. Featuring bipolar air ionization as part of an overall facilities – hygiene – safety strategy simultaneously inspires needed employee and guest confidence; when done right it comes with more favorable economies of scale. Included in the unrivaled range of its highly engineered service offerings, the Day & Nite family of companies’ Performance Solutions is uniquely equipped to reduce your overall costs of doing business while raising indoor environmental quality to levels that will extinguish the many flames of risk and uncertainty burning too intensely year-end 2021.
