Worker Productivity

Breathe better, Work Better.

Staff salaries and expenditures make up the bulk of operational expenses associated with occupying an office building. Indeed, over 85% of total workplace costs are spent on salaries and benefits, compared to less than 10% on rent and less than 1% on energy.

Research suggests that by making even small improvements to factors such as productivity, health and well-being, businesses can experience greater financial benefit than they would from more efficient resource use in building operations.

At E-CO, we can help you take a fresh look at reducing your workplace absenteeism due to short term illness such as flu, asthma, allergies, cold, throat and eye irritation.

We focus on improving the building indoor air quality by intercepting and killing 99% of airborne bacterias, viruses and allergens as they pass through the HVAC system.


  • Reduce not only absenteeism but also “presenteeism” (your employee is at work but not maximally productive), habits that collectively cost UK employers, an estimated £32 billion* a year in lost productivity.
