Vitalising and inspiring working environments make employees happier, healthier and more effective. But how do you create such a workplace? These are the seven conditions for a healthy working environment.
1. Comfortable climate
For optimal productivity, the indoor temperature should range between 20-25°C. But the perception of climate varies from person to person; young or old and male or female. One general climate leads to complaints among individual employees. Recently published scientific research also shows that people who cannot influence the indoor climate are expected to be on average 6.3% less productive and have an average of 1.5 times more sick building complaints.Read more about the Balance Comfort
2. Good acoustics
In an environment with good acoustic comfort, we work more effectively and feel more full of life and energy. With less stress, there are fewer errors and less absenteeism. Pleasant acoustics start with good décor. That's why we always look at the overall picture, taking into account the personal needs of the employees.
In any room, sound can be absorbed, shielded, weakened or masked. The layout of a space, behaviour and experience also affect acoustic comfort. In the end, the solution is always a combination of different measures.

4. Green in the office
By adding natural elements to your environment, employees experience less stress and are happier and more productive. This is one of the most efficient and cost-saving interventions in the establishment of a new working environment. Biophilic design is increasingly being used to enhance the benefits of a connection with nature.
Biophilic design is a relatively unknown concept, but scientists have long agreed: the need for a connection to nature is deeply rooted in our genes and has a direct influence on our physical and mental health. There are several elements that you can add to your workplace to create a healthier environment.
5. Natural light
‘When an office has sufficient daylight, 71% of the employees feel more energised.’
6. Inspiring look & feel
A visually pleasant working environment attracts talent, ensures recognition and radiates a positive brand experience. Our interior designers and designers help shape new or existing working environments with their well-founded knowledge and years of experience in the field of working styles, wellbeing, sustainability and acoustics. All based on your needs.
7. Healthy amenities
By offering healthy snacks such as nuts, rice waffles with humus, cucumber and water with mint, cucumber and fruit, employees perform 20% better. Research shows that employees also feel 78% more energetic and 66% happier. Better education means unhealthy habits are decreasing considerably, for example, today’s employees drink less coffee and more water.
