A business’s most valuable asset is the staff who deliver the work of the organisation. Healthy staff are fundamental to ensuring a company remains efficient and profitable and in turn allows the UK to remain one of the most prosperous and best places to work and live. A large part of an employee’s life is spent at work; therefore employers are an important part in helping their worker’s achieve a good quality of life.
Building design can play a tangible part in improving wellbeing. There is nothing new about this idea as some will remember the ‘sick building syndrome’ discussions in the eighties. However over the past few years health and wellbeing in a building has considerably moved up the agenda of the top building users and land lords know that an efficient building yields more rent. It is also no secret that we are all living and working for longer, so businesses have needed to adapt to ensure all employees can utilise the building.
Technology has also had an impact on this with personal devices we can easily connect with which tell us how much we’ve moved, what our blood pressure is, healthy eating ideas to name but a few. Building management is also more connected to the Internet of Things etc.
