One of the most exciting areas of development has concerned the effect of light on our circadian (daily) cycles. Progress has accelerated since 2000, when researchers discovered a new type of photoreceptor in the eyes, one which powerfully regulates our sleep/wake cycle. Via this photoreceptor, light resets our body clock, which prompts our body and organs to carry out their required functions at any time of day.
While there’s still more to learn and document, it’s clear that lighting can play a powerful role in improving the workplace environment and engaging employees.
