The office workplace of today and tomorrow!


Satelliet UK


The office workplace of today and tomorrow, we all appreciate the aesthetics anywhere we spend a considerable amount of time, when it comes to the workplace, how we feel through our day is important and our environment plays a major role, if you've worked in a poor working environment, it's no doubt you've noticed a shift in your mood, attitude and overall work ethic.

The key area to consider is how to boost staff productivity, of course, the aesthetics of workplaces and its impact on employee well-being are nothing new. A slew of research reveals how everything from the artwork on the walls to workstations with natural light boosts productivity.

“Longer distance views, away from computer screens or written documents, allow the eyes to adjust and re-focus, which reduces fatigue, headaches and the effects of eye strain in the long term. Views also have a positive impact on wellbeing, in part by providing a psychological connection with other groups of people while in a safe space,” states a report from the World Green Building Council.

In recent years, considerable energy has gone into showing how plants and flowers brighten the work experience. “Biophilia” (the research strand, not the Björk album) demonstrates how green office spaces generate physiological responses such as increased brain activity and lower stress hormones. A Harvard University paper last year found that the cognitive performance of “green” office workers was double that of those working in conventional environments.

But “green” isn’t necessarily scenic. When it comes to green space, the issue is quality, not quantity, says Seresinhe. “Just because an area is green doesn’t mean it’s a beautiful area of green,” she says, citing the examples of a derelict recreational park or a field with an industrial park in the middle. - The Guardian
