Opportunities for Productivity and Wellbeing: Human Sensing in the Workplace

The growing influence of mobile computing and constant connectivity in people's daily lives, has dramatically affected how work is done. While the majority of focus of sensing technology use has been on personal use-cases, the workplace is an important and well-suited setting for combining managed sensing technology in the workplace with personal tracking devices introduced by individual workers. In this paper, we report two recent explorations of understanding the role of technology in promoting wellbeing and productivity in the workplace, and mechanisms to help sustain participation in behavior change. We then briefly discuss new areas of work.
