Workspace Design is Critical for Results

Creating a workspace design that reflects a healthy workplace requires looking at the physical work environment from a holistic perspective. This is vitally important as happy, healthy employees are more productive, have lower benefit costs and are less likely to miss work due to health-related issues. The healthiest workplaces have a “high-performing” philosophy with a democratic culture that creates the conditions for people to feel their best thus enabling them to do their best work.

A democratic workspace design has many positive attributes, including:

  • Focus on the health and well-being of all
  • Understand how health and well-being contribute to productivity
  • Break down physical barriers (fewer walls, lower panels)
