Who knew that something as simple as the amount of natural light in your office space could have such a big impact?

Recent studies have found that:

  1. A recent study found that 70% of employees associate having natural light with improved performance at work.
  2. 78% report improvement in their overall wellbeing.
  3. 47% employees said they feel fatigued without natural light in their workspace.
  4. 43% feel gloomy without it.

Keep those window blinds open, and, again, encourage your employees to get outside. If your office is especially dark, it may be time to change it up.
