We all want to be happy at work right? Well, it turns out that happy employees are also productive employees. And, as our report Vocation Frustration has shown, happy employees are also less likely to look for a job elsewhere. So, there’s a business case for creating a happy workspace.
This report looks at one aspect of workspace happiness in more detail: the physical working environment. View report.
There is an important connection between workspaces, and people. Get the workspace right, and this can bring business benefits. Get it wrong, and as our report Vocation Frustration has shown, things can easily go downhill. Having the right lighting is crucial to making the workspace work. But sadly, our latest research has unearthed a harsh reality – that too many of us are stuck working with poor lighting.
Research has proven that the right space has a substantial impact on how we feel in our daily lives; it improves our job satisfaction and increases our productivity. It’s not just about the physical space we inhabit, but the virtual space and the one between our ears. We’re committed to understanding the science of what makes space work, so everyone can feel fulfilled, productive and happy in a space that’s right for them.
When you get the most out of your space, you won’t believe what a difference it makes. Space connects us, and helps us relate to one another. It can inspire us to create, and make us feel alive. It renews us, and gives us energy to face the day. The right space even takes care of us, giving us the security and confidence we need to do what we do.
