Balancing Cost and Comfort: The case for always occupied setpoints
While life may slowly be returning to normal, face coverings are now a safety precaution, fashion statement, and way of life. Hot, uncomfortable face coverings have been mandatory for most businesses in America since early May. So how do we ensure associates are comfortable enough to do their job AND stay safe by keeping their PPE ON?
