Studies show that when employees are unsatisfied, productivity suffers. Conversely, happy employees are productive employees. According to experts, employees with high morale are 89 percent more likely put in extra effort and extra hours at work. Employee satisfaction and productivity goes hand in hand and you cannot disregard one without affecting the other. That is why you have to ensure a workplace that can promote employee satisfaction, thus, increasing productivity at all times.
Windows can play a significant role in increasing office productivity. There are several instances when employees complain about the lighting situation in their offices. Artificial fluorescent lighting can make it difficult for the eyes to focus, causing eye strain and even migraine headaches. Natural light could be an option since it illuminates and warms a room. It also greatly improves your mood. However, too much natural light can be a bad thing especially in an office setting. This is where windows come into picture.
Blinds and Shades
When it comes to choosing the right window treatments for your office, you need blinds or shades that not only look great, but are also affordable, durable, and easy to maintain, with just the right amount of light control. Window treatments that act like “sunglasses” for your windows are necessary in cutting glare, minimizing heat gain, and improving visibility all at the same time. There should also be a feature wherein you can vary the degree of openness in the window. The more open they are, the more light they let in, and the more you can see through both the inside and the outside. Aside from minimising glare, the blinds and shades must also regulate office temperature. They must reflect solar heat, keeping your interior cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Over time, this could end up saving you some serious money on any energy costs.
However, not all offices are blessed with ample windows. If this is the case for your office, a bit of trickery may be needed. Mirrors can help bounce light around the room and will actually help light your area. If you have an office that has windows only on one side of the room, consider putting large mirrors on the opposite wall of the windows. When the light pours through those windows, the mirrors will reflect it back into the room in different directions. It will also make the office feel bigger and more airy as well as it gives the illusion of depth.
