    Creating engaging office environments

    Light for the heart, light for sight, light for the mind


    Recent years have seen a shift in approaches to office design. Purely functional workspaces have started giving way to spaces that are designed to engage and inspire. Employers are increasingly realizing that people represent not only their highest cost but also, and more importantly, their greatest asset. As a result, they have been focusing on workplace design as a way of attracting talent, retaining high-value employees, and enhancing organizational performance.


    Human resources professionals recognize that improving engagement is a powerful tool to get the best out of your employees. An engaging workplace environment fosters creativity, encourages innovation, and, maybe most importantly, increases commitment. Workplace studies and trend analyses identify key elements that contribute to building an engaged and satisfied workforce.


    This white paper investigates the important effects that lighting can have on the user (employee) within the office trinity: user, organization, and building. Our insights are supported with findings from the scientific literature to define the role that lighting can play in creating engaging environments that support productive organizations.
