Wearables in the workplace

This wearable technology survey was carried out to explore how employees feel about wearables and whether it might be viable for employers to consider providing wearable devices to employees in order to collect health and workrelated information.

Wearable technology refers to clothing and accessories incorporating computer and advanced electronic technologies. These devices produce data that, often enabled with analytics, can be used by consumers to manage their health and by healthcare organisations to improve care and potentially reduce costs via systems enabled to provide remote patient monitoring.
