Not only does green design help the environment, but it also pays off in big ways for companies and their employees. It aids in attracting and keeping top talent as well as increases productivity. Taking time to explore some green design options for your space is definitely worth it.
Looking for office spaces with a lot of natural light will reduce energy cost and have a positive effect on anyone working inside. If possible, windows should be operable to allow fresh air in. Plus, employees are more productive when they feel connected to the outdoors. Exposure to natural light also keeps our circadian rhythms in check – which means better sleep.
Installing energy saving software on computers and printers to reduce the amount of electricity being used really makes a big difference across the whole office. Another way to make an impact is to use motion sensors on lights that turn on and off depending on occupancy. These are quick and easy ways to save energy at the workplace.
Creating an appreciation for green design in your office culture has the added benefit of helping employees feel like they are making a positive difference by working for your company. This leads to higher satisfaction rates and less turnover. You can also engage employees in activities like a recycling campaign or waste reduction efforts.
By committing to some principles of green office design, your company and the environment will benefit. Taking steps to become more green doesn’t have to be difficult. ROSI can help! Contact us for a free consultation.
