Coworking spaces are known to boost productivity by providing great office design, more variety in terms of space, and more areas for collaboration. The WorldGBC‘s latest impressive report – ‘Health, Wellbeing and Productivity in Offices: The Next Chapter for Green Building’ – shows that the design and the environment of an office significantly impact the health, wellbeing and productivity of its occupants.
The report also reveals that the health and wellbeing of employees impact the financial results of the company.
A modest improvement in employee health or productivity, can have a huge financial implication for employers – one that is many
times larger than any other financial savings associated with an efficiently designed and operated building.
And also leads to successful business in the long-term.
A healthy, happy workforce is a vital component of a productive, successful business in the long-term.
If we better understand the relationship between the office, people and organisational performance, the potential for practical application is significant. This includes due diligence on new space, rent review on existing space, fit-out guidance on refurbished space, and so on.
The report showed 9 points evidence that the office environment and design can have real impact on the health, wellbeing and performance of the employees.
The report concluded the following flow chart of how the health, wellbeing and performance are related to the different office environments.
