In line with its commitment to creating healthier environements for the workers, Humanscale recently took part in a research project – Wellness Together (*1) which provides evidence of a strong correlation between productivity, creativity and even profitability with employee working conditions, such as: light, air, noise, health, culture, design, movemen and the quality of furniture.
Specifically the research identified movement as a dominant factor within the three key metrics of Productivity, Profitability and Innovation/Creativity, out of the ten strongest factors influencing better performance on two characteristics were shared by all three:
- Flexibility to reconfigure space
- Healthy posture promoting workstations
4 out of 9 of the top characteristics that potentially impact upon profitability are related to movement. Essentially businesses with these characteristics have a higher gross profit, the extent of which (uplift) is presented here:
- Having sit/stand or high level desks – 37%
- Workstations that encourage movement – 25%
- Employees given the choice to sit or stand at work – 25%
- Employees allowed to swap from sitting to standing and vice versa – 24%
We look forward to seeing you at the show on Stand E61.
