Improving Air Quality to Get Employees Back to Work During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Published by Parisa Ostovari

As many office-based workforces have debated how best to work during a global pandemic, Trent Murphy of CJM Financial in Ankeny has taken things into his own hands.

CJM Financial is a family-owned invoice factoring business whose main clientele work in the transportation industry. They support entrepreneurs and business owners by providing customized finance and business solutions to increase customers’ cash flow and help shield them from debt.

When COVID-19 hit, Trent and his staff worked remotely March through May. But working with sensitive information in various locations was not ideal.

He felt that working in the office was important, so Trent looked for ways to make the facility safer. He remembered working with us during their 2018 remodel, when we installed a new HVAC system, and reached out to see what other ideas and options we could offer.

To prepare the CJM Financial building for the staff’s return, we installed two Aerus Air Scrubbers, which help keep dust, germs, odors, viruses and more out of the air.

“They installed the air scrubbers very quickly, and they wore PPE and followed safety protocols the whole way,” said Trent. “We felt confident we would be safe coming back to work.”

In addition to improving air quality, the CJM team arranged for staff to be more spread out and work in cubicles with tall glass walls. They’re glad to be back in the office and supporting their customers to the best of their abilities.
