The office lighting in your workspace has a direct effect on the mood, energy level, and productivity of your team.
Lighting that is too dim will make your employees feel tired and cranky. On the other hand, lighting that is too bright will be hard on their eyes — even triggering migraines — and will disrupt their body’s natural circadian rhythms.
In offices and workplaces, circadian lighting plays an important role in employee productivity and health. Modern LED lights are designed with circadian rhyme in mind whereas old incandescent bulbs weren’t. A study found that Office workers exposed to circadian lighting performed 10 to 25% better than their counterparts.
Boost Alertness in your Workplace
Drowsiness and fatigue are major contributors to workplace accidents and injuries. Multiple studies have shown that a space that is well lit helps minimize drowsiness and fatigue. Not only that, a bright workplace also helps improve mood, making staff feel better while they are working.
LEDs come in a variety of brightness levels and color temperatures, allowing managers to be creative in creating office lighting setups.
Remember, it’s not just about brightness, but also about providing a variety of lighting options that include ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting.
