How lighting can affect an employee’s wellbeing and productivity
According to a recent study, Philips says that there is a significant link between light and circadian rhythms known as “built-in clocks” which is what determines our sleep cycle, relaxation, and stimulation. Lighting has also been said to decrease depression as well as improve one’s energy, mood, alertness, and productivity.
Natural light is the ideal solution for office workers since it not only helps our eyesight, but it also boosts our energy and mood levels, happiness and encourages a general willingness to show up at work without delay.
If your access to daylight is limited, studies have found that working under “blue-enriched” luminaires, actually increases productivity by supporting mental perception, energy levels and alertness while reducing fatigue and daytime sleepiness.
Other benefits of blue light include lowering melatonin levels, which is the hormone we create when our bodies react to darkness and basically makes us feel tired. Lowering melatonin levels keeps us more alert and our brain functioning.
Making the switch to LED lighting is not only good for your bottom line but also for your employee’s wellbeing and productivity. Remark Group can work with your company to discuss your lighting requirements and design the right solution for your business.
