Health is
good for business

It makes perfect sense that if your staff are comfortable in their workplace they will feel motivated and productive, but it’s only in recent times that “health and wellbeing” has emerged as an area of focus for employers – a factor also linked to staff recruitment, retention and job satisfaction.

Progressive companies now recognize that their employee’s health and happiness is much more than a ‘nice to have’. Improving workplace comfort not only makes a difference to people, it has a positive effect on your brand image too.


Improved comfort, achieved through better lit environments that include daylight, has a proven positive effect - if employees feel better, they work more effectively.


The most important thing executives can do is send a very clear message to their employees that they care about each person’s overall wellbeing."

- Tom Rath, Gallup

It's clearer than ever that we can no longer design offices purely for mechanistic efficiency without taking psychological comfort and emotional connection into account."


- Imogen Privett, Architectural Designer & Researcher
