How Lighting Affects Productivity in the Workplace

Philips Lighting recently completed research that indicates that quality of lighting in the workplace, dramatically effects the productivity of employees. The research found that light had significant impact on circadian rhythm.

Why is that important to workplace productivity?

Circadian rhythms have been shown to influence sleep-wake cycles, hormone release, eating habits and digestion, stimulation, relaxation, body temperature, and other important bodily functions. Knowing this, are you confident that the effects your current lighting system has on your staff is optimal for performance?

Additionally, a link between lighting and decreased depression has been found. Proper lighting can improve employees' moods, energy levels, alertness and productivity.
The article Flick of a Switch: How Lighting Affects Productivity and Mood  by Molly Greenberg on Business.com, Greenberg references a study completed by the American Society of Interior Design that discovered a whopping 68% of employees complained about the lighting in their offices.

The studies don't just apply to office buildings. What about schools? Investing into a lighting retrofit for a school will not only cut energy costs for the school but could improve student productivity. Similarly, a restaurant with improved lighting can increase savings and positively influence the mood of staff and customers.  Republic Energy Services has worked with a wide variety of clients in different industries and has seen positive results not only financially for our clients, but also in their overall happiness with the result of their lighting retrofit.
