Retention and Promotion of Staff

Physical Work Environment

A wealth of scholarly research has been done on the subject of physical environment and productivity. It does not appear that the documented long-term cost benefits that result from the provision of reasonable space, privacy, natural light, noise/distraction reduction, etc. are being considered for staff at lower and mid-levels.This is not only a matter for long-term fiscal health, but for employee health and well-being.

    While natural light may not always be a possibility, overhead flourescent lights contribute to migraines, resulting in loss of work for those afflicted. Studies in ergonomics have demonstrated health benefits for everyone when overhead flourescent lights are turned off and individuals are allowed to use desk lights. Individuals with migraines, especially, would benefit from this.
