Healthy office, healthy mind:

Promoting wellbeing with your office facilities

January is the month of new beginnings, and for many, a renewed focus on their health and wellbeing. Whether it’s giving up alcohol, focusing on fitness or trying to start new healthy habits like drinking plenty of water, many of us begin the month with good intentions - which can all too easily slip! As an employer, it’s therefore a great time to encourage our employees to take time to look after themselves while at work.

Many businesses are still adhering to the government guidance to work at home during January, and while this has its benefits in terms of work/life balance, research by BRITA VIVREAU has shown there are many elements of office life that employees miss. For example, 52% of workers say they miss socializing with colleagues, and one in five miss access to high-quality amenities such as tea, coffee and filtered water.

Opportunity

This period of home-working presents employers with the perfect opportunity to assess how their office facilities can support the wellbeing of their staff.

We recently worked with Ben Channon, Director at Ekkist – an expert in architecture and design for positive mental health – on our, H2O – Home to Office report, who expressed the benefits of creating a workplace designed with wellbeing in mind:

“Research shows that happy staff really are better staff. If businesses ensure they are creating a positive environment for their staff, they’ll reap the benefits when it comes to their productivity, and we might all be better off as a result.”

Healthier

In a recent case study from the International WELL Building Institute, a company found that by redesigning a healthier office space, it reduced staff turnover by 27% and absenteeism was 50% lower than the previous year.[1]
