Commercial Office Lighting Options
Most of our perception is through sight, and in an office environment, improvements in perception can drive productivity which demonstrates the obvious advantages of good commercial office lighting. Lighting not only increases productivity by improving perception it also makes an office environment more functional, comfortable and inspiring.
More on productivity
Light plays a central role in our circadian rhythms, which is our 24-hour internal clock, and this helps create a sense of routine and balance throughout the day. Circadian rhythms regulate cycles of alertness and sleepiness in response to the sleep-wake cycle by responding to changes in our environment. When a person's circadian rhythm is more in sync, they are likely to be more positive in their attitude and productive in their work life.
Another bonus to productivity is that well-lit offices tend to reduce absences and illnesses among workers. While lighting that goes to extremes by being too harsh or too dim can hurt productivity, it understands the proper balance of tasteful soothing commercial office lighting can bring clarity and reduce eye strain. This way, employees are not only more productive, but they feel better about their environment.
The mood is very important because it relates not only to workplace satisfaction but also to customer satisfaction when you consider that a mood can rub off on other people. If customers are physically entering your place of business, the effects are even stronger, and most businesses know they are built on individual customer experiences.
Happier workers are more motivated to work, and they are more likely to relate to each other harmoniously. It happens this way partly because the pleasant lighting will create the right neurological stimulation and this not only keeps the brain active, it helps people produce happier neurotransmitters in the brain that spark these more harmonious and productive moods.
Reducing health and safety risk
When employees are subjected to poor lighting systems, their health and safety can be at risk because it is more difficult for them to see what they are doing, and this can be even more of a problem if they are moving around a lot.
In offices of business that require precision work, there is the obvious concern that too little light would be a safety hazard, but most people do not consider that the element of glare from improper lighting can create visual interference that might lead to costly mistakes. Avoiding mistakes in accounting, designing, operating machinery, or assembling components will allow the money you spend on effective commercial office lighting to more than pay for itself.
Another way that improving your lighting will pay for itself is if you choose to have LED lighting installed. LED lighting, along with other forms of energy-efficient lighting, will serve as one of the fastest ways to reduce your energy costs. With better productivity, more harmony in the workplace, a safer work environment, and perhaps a reduction in your energy bill, there is no wonder that the proper light environment in your business will pay dividends for years to come and save your bottom line.
