Good office lighting is essential for both employer and employee. It contributes to higher productivity and reduces stress and fatigue. The reason: eyes don't have to strain as much when there is sufficient light. The first step in office lighting is therefore functional basic lighting. When this is in place, the finishing touches can be added: a desk, floor or pendant lamp will make the room feel extra well-lit and welcoming.
Professional lighting for office areas
People are meant to be outdoors and to absorb plenty of daylight. When outside, the eyes absorb 2,000 – 20,000 lumens during the day. Office buildings are often insufficiently lit, so the lumen count does not exceed 500. For best employee performance, a minimum of 1000 lumens is recommended. Insufficient light can have a negative impact, leading to reduced energy and stress. In severe cases, when this is prolonged, it can even lead to depression, obesity and a reduced immune system. The right lighting can therefore contribute to reducing staff absenteeism. Healthy staff are invaluable, so make sure there is sufficient light in the office for an optimal workplace!
Corporate sustainability with LED lighting
As a business, it is not just about dealing sustainably with your staff. Consumers also expect organisations to act more sustainably and, in addition, legislation regarding sustainability is becoming stricter. How can lighting contribute?
