The Ultimate Workplace Makeover
Give your workspace the ultimate makeover (and no, we’re not talking about a fresh coat of paint). Learn how LED lighting can have a significant impact on workers’ moods and productivity.
As the seasons change, having the right amount of light, in the right spaces is so very critical. With limited access to natural light, our bodies rely on lighting to illuminate the dark. No one wants to be left “in the dark” (pun intended), feeling sad and depressed. Light energizes us and can stabilize our circadian rhythm, helping improve our overall mood. According to the Sleep Foundation, “Different systems of the body follow circadian rhythms that are synchronized with a master clock in the brain. This master clock is directly influenced by environmental cues, especially light, which is why circadian rhythms are tied to the cycle of day and night.”
When businesses focus on providing a safe working environment, employee morale is higher and productivity is up. Think about it: employees come to work, feeling energized and ready to jumpstart their day (probably thanks to a good cup of coffee). Soon, they’re feeling tired, lost in tasks and struggling to focus. Their mood changes, which directly correlates with what we mentioned earlier – when your employee’s mood is high, their productivity increases, and when it’s low, productivity tends to suffer. Improved workplace lighting can make a positive difference! In fact, a study in an industrial workspace found productivity increases from 0 to 9% as a result of changes in lighting.
When considering an ultimate makeover of your workspace, lighting should be at the top of your “to-do” list. Lighting influences our work conditions and can help us perform tasks efficiently, safely and comfortably.
