It demands new innovative approaches to address property manager pain points.

SESSIONS

Occupant Wellness, Healthy Buildings, Wellness Standards & Privacy Concerns
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:35 am    Location: Virtual
For decades a healthy building meant that it was relatively “clean” and that it met OSHA requirements. Over the past few years, largely due to the research of Joe Allen at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the WELL, FITWELL, ASHRAE and RESET Standards, we now have a much more holistic, and scientific view of exactly what contributes to occupant wellness and healthy buildings and why it’s important to us as humans. In this session we examine the components of a healthy building strategy and as many of these initiatives may be collecting sensitive data, we also touch on data privacy and governance.

Building Automation, Smart Buildings and IoT: The Journey Continues
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:40 am - 9:20 am    Location: Virtual
The concept of a smart building is continually evolving. What started with automating single systems has evolved to include an integrated, interoperable approach for the entire Internet of Things (IoT) landscape for buildings. Monitoring and controlling buildings for operational efficiency, financial optimization, occupant experience and health and well-being has proven to be extremely valuable, especially in the COVID-19 era. To take full advantage of the benefits of smart buildings, understanding how building automation changes the role of the property manager and what skills are needed to manage an intelligent building is crucial. This session addresses the status of building automation today and what’s on the horizon for the next decade.

Optimizing Virtual Teams: Leveraging People, Processes and Information Technology
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 9:35 am - 10:10 am    Location: Virtual
Work as we know it has transformed over the past few months and organizations are facing the challenges of keeping remote employees, critical onsite personnel, clients and service providers connected and productive. Communication and collaboration platforms, effective cloud-based document management and file sharing, as well as fully digital financial workflows and processes are crucial for efficient virtual and hybrid working environments. In addition to identifying the right technology mix to support a hybrid workforce, many organizations struggle to build a strong corporate culture with a remote team. While “water cooler conversations” are hard to replicate in virtual environments, property managers can leverage people, processes and technology to collaborate with remote team members and keeping them connected.
