NEW YORK- August 13th, 2019-Future Workplace, a New York-based research firm preparing leaders for workplace disruptions, and View, a technology company creating smart and connected buildings, today announced the results of a new research study entitled, “The Workplace Wellness Study.”
Almost half of all employees said poor air quality makes them feel sleepy during the workday, and 28% reported that poor air quality creates symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes or throat irritation.
Access to natural light, daylight and outdoor views all outranked an on-site gym and a pet friendly workplace policy as an existing emotional wellness strategy in the workplace.
“The research shows that employer health and wellness efforts fall short despite company investments in on-site gyms, ergonomics and healthy food choices,” says Jeanne Meister, Founding Partner, Future Workplace.
“It’s the invisible factors such as air quality and access to natural light that are often overlooked yet provide a significant influence on workplace wellness, employee productivity and the overall quality of the employee experience.”
