Office, a healthy working environment
From history we have a special affinity with designing working environments. After we started to specialise ourselves in health environments, we started to wonder more and more what the situation was with the health at offices.
From researches it appears that we spend an average 90% of our time inside. 40% of this time we spend at our workplace. That is almost half. Link this to recent research data from which it appears that 1 in 2 Dutch people are overweight, only 25% achieve the guidelines of healthy food and we excessively have not enough exercise and it is not difficult to notice that the design of working environments is almost a social issue.
We exploited our knowledge and expertise in the case and have linked this the working environment. Because apart from the fact that we contribute to a solution in a social issue with a health workplace, we also contribute in a different way. Healthy employees have a lower sickness absence, higher productivity, and higher welfare and higher employee’s satisfaction. And that is interesting for any employer.
Plus, let us not forget that with the coming aging we lose a substantial part of our professional population in a few years. Whereby the recruitment and preservation of talent becomes for companies the biggest challenge for the future.
