— The Wearable Tips
The mix of science and new gadgets for wellness takes up from a simple consideration: reducing stress is essential to improving productivity. Well-being and technology intertwine in the workplace and our homes through wearable devices, used both as an aid to anyone’s work, such as exoskeletons, and to monitor workers and their well-being.
“The reason why companies use wearables for their employees is to improve the working environment and performance” states the BI Norwegian business school.
“A wearable device offers important incentives and aids: smart glasses can drastically reduce risks at work, while health monitoring tells employees and their managers when it’s time to take a break and how to improve their lifestyle.” There’s only one problem, and it is always the same. What’s the boundary between the pursuit of well-being and your privacy? Wearables have lowered the threshold that separates what is personal and what is professional. Sleeping hours or the amount of physical activity have always been a personal issue, while now the professional domain is taking over even these aspects of our lives.
