Why Go Back To The Office?
The great migration back to the office has begun. We’ve learned that office environments that have not addressed air quality, noise pollution, glaring lights and lack of space flexibility won’t entice workers out of their homes and back to the commute.
The demand for inviting, healthy and sustainable spaces to collaborate is higher than ever and we’ve gained new insights in the past few years about what employees require in their work environment.
Redesigning the office with flexibility and employee health and well-being in mind can start at the ceiling.
Indoor Environmental Quality in Offices
Cleaning office air leads to an 11% increase in office worker productivity.
Exposure to harsh fluorescent lighting can cause eye strain and blurred vision. Double vision and increased sensitivity to light can also occur.
Noise pollution in the workplace impacts the concentration and productivity of 69% of employees globally.
"Use of high light-reflectant ceilings helps extend the daylighting deeper into the space, creating a more enjoyable workspace.”
