Glass is a natural material manufactured using some of earth’s most abundant raw materials. Unlike many other products, glass offers sustainability and contributes to LEED practices. That may be a key reason why glass is a popular choice in today’s office design. Another reason why glass is so prevalent in office environments is likely its ability to increase employee well-being and productivity by bringing natural light into the space.
Envision offices that are dark and stale, with no integration of the outside world for its occupants. Now imagine incorporating windows or glass walls to bring natural light into that same environment. As simple as it seems, doing this can drastically influence safety and health of employees. Studies have shown that increasing natural light helps with physical issues like eyestrain, headaches, and fatigue. And it ultimately improves employee satisfaction and engagement, leading to a healthier, happier, more productive workforce.
Smart organizations know that enhancing the performance of their people keeps them growing and actively innovating. And as simple as it may seem, increasing daylight is spaces has major benefits. Some of the many ways you might increase daylight in your office environment could include introducing more windows, taking down walls, or installing glass walls for an aesthetically pleasing design and added functionality. It doesn’t take much to transform a lifeless space into a bright, appealing place for your employees and visitors alike.
