The future of healthy buildings

What do the healthiest workplaces have in common? Our founder, Dave Milliken, explores the answers in a must-read guest article over at Buildings.com.


Have you been considering what would make your workplace healthier lately? Maybe better ventilation, frequent sanitization, more natural light, ergonomic chairs, tighter security?

Healthy buildings begin with a touchless visitor management systemFounder of Greetly, Dave Milliken, has thought a lot about what makes a building a healthy place to work, and he’s written about it over at Buildings.com in an article titled “Healthy Buildings Start with Touchless Tech.”

In the article, Dave makes the case that the health of buildings starts at the front desk. Now, more than ever, we understand the need for employees and visitors to avoid close contact — whether from COVID-19 or the flu. “To keep people healthy in a shared workspace, we need to set up systems that avoid unnecessary physical contact,” he writes. Fortuitously, a recent surge in touchless technology makes this problem highly solvable.
