When conditioned air (hot or cold) leaks from a building, the energy it took to condition that air is wasted, creating an energy loss. Leaks are only one of the sources for wasted energy; motors, pumps, and electrical boxes will generate heat and lose energy efficiency as they begin to fail. Thermal imagers can be used by creating pictures of measured infrared energy or heat and assigning colors based on the differences of temperature.
Unrealistic expectations and disappointment often go hand in hand. When evaluating logistics companies and assessing their service proposals, asking questions helps ensure that your expectations are in line with 3PL providers and their capabilities. Asking potential 3PL providers these eight questions can potentially help you avoid costly surprises down the road, such as being locked into long-term contracts with 3PL companies providing poor customer service.
Hurricane season is in full effect now until the end of November. Hurricanes are a serious threat to people and property as we have seen the recent damage Hurricane Michael has caused in the United States. It is vital to prepare for the weather, but more importantly is your facility ready to respond and recover? Here are some tips from Grainger to make sure you are ready when disaster strikes.
Each season provides unique hazards and safety risks to workers and facilities alike. Previously we discussed the extreme risks tied to heat stress and its affect on worker productivity, but as the colder weather blows in so do new and unexpected risks, hazards, and necessary precautions.
Millennial women are taking the workforce by storm. According to Inc.com almost 60% of all college students are women, demonstrating a growing gender gap in higher education - the so-called "ticket" to a high-paying job. A recent U.S. Census Bureau analysis shows that as more young women obtained college degrees, delayed having children, and joined the workforce, they edged out millennial men for better-paying jobs.
Last stop, Pennsylvania! We decided to make the Keystone State our final pit stop on our 6-part blog series journey exploring localized energy profiles across the country.
As we round out the final states in our blog series identifying unique energy attributes in your state, we return to the location of Corporate United’s recent Road to SYNERGY event. While Maryland was a great host, it is also home to specific, local price drivers that affect the cost of energy across the state.
Corporate United has been in our new office for less than a year, making us all too familiar with some of the challenges that relocating your corporate office can bring. During the initial relocation planning it can be tough to focus on the positive outcomes that arise. For instance, at CU we outgrew our old space due to our ever-expanding team, which is cause for celebration! We were also given the opportunity through relocation to redesign our workspaces to be more functional and cohesive for collaboration, two big advantages.
