FACTORS AFFECTING OFFICE WELLNESS

Thermal Comfort

Control over temperature led to an increase of about 3% in logical thinking performance and 7% in typing performance. Another study suggests up to 3% gains in overall productivity because of personal control of workspace temperature.

Noise

Being productive in the modern knowledge-based office is practically impossible when noise provides an unwanted distraction. This can be a major cause of dissatisfaction.

Daylight

Regular exposure to direct sunlight every morning for 30-45 minutes can significantly improve sleep quality.

Interior Layout

Shapes, textures, and colors can all impact sense of employees’ well-being; while contours, spatial forms, and proportions – such as ceiling heights – can all help hinder employees in carrying out certain tasks.

Green Space

Active design within the building and green space either inside the building or office grounds, suggest a lower number of sick days among the employees.

Chemical Parameters

The concentration of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compound, and formaldehyde indoors varies according to location, occupancy, and time of day, tending to increase during the day.

Respirable Suspended Particles

Excessive levels of particulates can cause allergic reactions, such as dry eyes, contact lens problems, nose, throat, and skin irritation, coughing, sneezing, and respiratory difficulties.

Biological Parameters

Mold, dust mites, pet dander, and pest droppings or body parts can trigger asthma. Biological contaminants, including molds and pollens, can cause allergic reactions among employees.

Odor

Pleasant smelling offices can influence cognitive processes that affect creative task performance, as well as personal memories and moods.
