How Is Your Office Set Up?


As efficiency sales professionals, we’re tuned into the non-utility-cost and non-financial benefits associated with improvements to the built environment (e.g., productivity, comfort, health, etc.). We use these benefits to convey the true value of our efficiency projects. If I had to take a guess, I would say that most of us are so focused on selling the benefits to our prospects that we forget about our own workspaces! Small changes to the work environment can make a big difference in our own comfort, productivity, and well-being.

An article published this week on the Forbes Entrepreneurs blog shares a wealth of interesting facts and figures about how the environment affects productivity. The article covers temperature, light, sound, pollution, and even non-physical attributes such as company culture, motivation, and leadership. I highly recommend checking out the full piece (it’s an infographic, so if you only have a minute or two to spare you’ll still be able to get the gist of it).
