Knowing where to start can be overwhelming, so we’ve assembled 10 easy ways you can support wellness in your workplace below.
Place breakrooms or common areas away from workspaces to encourage walking within the office. Arranging your workplace this way also helps to promote interaction between departments, which can lead to serendipitous encounters that are good for your culture and promoting innovation company-wide.
Rethink office furniture. Integrate height adjustable tables, so employees can sit or stand while working. Also, offering seating options, like stools or perch type chairs, can help too.
Swap out traditional, fluorescent lighting for LED.
Snack better. Instead of the usual vending machine options, offer healthy foods and lots of water to co-workers.
Bring nature in. Incorporate living walls inside your space. They can improve air quality, reduce noise and decrease energy costs. Additionally, they can help you earn LEED and WELL credits.
This is a long list, but we suggest you begin by making a few simple changes first. Plan to make the switch to ergonomic furniture and then, upgrade tile, paint and carpet to low VOC options.
We offer comprehensive knowledge of furniture and complete space planning.
