Going green in the workplace involves more than just recycling paper or putting computers on sleep mode to conserve electricity. The initiative concerns the overall working environment, too. In fact, creating a green working atmosphere increases the overall health condition of the office and has been shown to reduce costs and heighten employee productivity.


By working in a green building, you are making a positive impact on the environment while benefiting your employees. With increased sunlight in an office setting as opposed to unnatural lighting, workers show less depression and are able to focus more quickly and easily. Recent studies show that green practices and work environments lead to reduced absenteeism, depression and stress, as well as increased employee productivity overall. 

 

To increase workplace productivity, try these earth-friendly tips in your office today:

  • avoid using noxious plastics, paints and adhesives when you are designing the office or re-building

  • place mirrors or heliostats on the roof that follow the path of the sun and reflect it into the building 
  • situate workstations near windows so that employees have some exposure to natural light
