You’re hunched over your desk and just can’t seem to see the computer screen. So you strain and rub your eyes to see better. Maybe you should just call it a day? Looks up at the clock. It’s only noon. So, how can you alleviate your tired eyes and get back to work? By improving the lighting in your work environment. Turns out that good lighting can improve productivity in the work place.
A recent study explored the connection between good light and productivity in the work place and discovered that effectively lit desks and work stations can help employees stay awake and stimulated. Circadian rhythms, also known as our “built-in clocks,” determine our sleep cycle, how we are stimulated, and how and when we relax.
You don’t want to fall asleep when you have a deadline. So you should set up good lighting to improve productivity.
“Lighting in offices and industrial spaces has a profound effect on the well-being, productivity, and worker vitality. Effectively lit and attractive environments enhance your image, help you recruit and retain high-value employees, and increase the total value of your facility.”
That’s right. Not only does good lighting keep you alert and productive, but it also creates a work environment that is highly valued by employees and outside clients. Whether you lead a entire team of great employees or you work from home in your office, you can’t fight facts: great lighting equates to great work.
