Green Design Boosts Productivity

WATERCOOLER CHAT: Green Design Boosts Productivity

In addition to state of the art communications, ergonomic furniture and space plans that multi-task, workspaces have become, by design, leaner and greener. Green design boosts productivity in many hidden ways within office design. Air quality, lighting, and green spaces have become important factors for not only employee health and wellbeing, but for talent acquisition and retention.

Findings from the April 2018 World Green Building Council (WGBC) study revealed the far-reaching impact of green building on office health and wellbeing: 

Reduced staff turnover, absenteeism, and presenteeism (physically present but not productive). 

Happier and healthier employees equal higher levels of engagement and productivity. 

Space planning and design that focuses on smart space utilization, flexible work settings, and open collaboration encourage more in-person interactions.
