Seize the daylight
Natural day light has so many positive benefits, but are you blocking its power?
Why discomfort matters.
In a typical business, employee salaries and benefits account for about 90% of operating costs—which is why maximizing employee productivity should be a key strategic focus for any organization. But a growing body of research shows that the indoor environment, and whether people are comfortable at work, influences productivity.
The World Green Building Council has named three sources of discomfort:
Temperature – too hot, too cold, or not consistent
Indoor air quality – humidity and high CO2 levels
Lighting – quality and distribution of artificial light, glare, and lack of natural lighting
Often, the effects these sources have on the workforce are underestimated, and can lead to poor concentration, sickness, and absences… which combine to reduce overall employee productivity.
