"Were delighted to see a report which puts a spotlight on the importance of creating healthier buildings, a subject which is rapidly growing in importance and prominence "
Gavin Holvey UK and Ireland Sales Manager at Priva
Priva UK supports the latest research from The British Council for Offices (BCO) which provides guidance on enabling Health and Wellbeing across an office building’s lifecycle.
Entitled ‘Wellness Matters: Health and Wellbeing in Offices and What to Do About It’ the report is a year-long project which critiques existing Health and Wellbeing measurement and certification, and argues the business case for investment in this space.
The report is one of the first major pieces of research into health and wellbeing in the office environment and with less than half of respondents in the study feeling like their workplace had a positive impact on their health, it highlights the shortfall between awareness of this issue and practical measures that can be taken to improve workplace conditions.
“As manufacturers of building management systems, we’re firm believers that those businesses that invest in Healthy buildings and Wellbeing will undoubtedly see the benefits of doing so. Improving employee happiness, wellbeing in the workplace and comfort translates into a healthier workforce, higher productivity and staff retention.
