Green Is Good for Employees


It's all about fresh air, natural light and a comfortable temperature when it comes to workplace happiness and productivity, according to a recent study. And wouldn't you know that these just happen to be features associated with green buildings?

Jones Lang LaSalle recently released a Global Sustainability Perspective, which analyzed the connection between green buildings and employee productivity. They found that a comfortable and healthy workplace had a huge effect on the well-being of the workers within. Specifically, they found that the greener the building, the lower the absenteeism and the greater the productivity.
