Employee productivity is conditioned by many different factors. One of them is place where employees have to fulfill their tasks. Improper working conditions can be the main reason for frustration even for the most qualified employees. If we do not feel comfortable working in a given place, we can have some problems with concentration and we can commit mistakes more easily.
The most common concerns in case of many offices are: improper organization of working space and work station as well as negligence in the lighting. The items of equipment have a direct impact on, for instance, human musculoskeletal system or sight. Unfortunately, if we deal with improper organization of work station in the office, employees can complain about aches and pains such as rachialgia or eye diseases. However, employers pay increasing attention to the standard of their office year-by-year, taking care about assuring the most ergonomic items of equipment.
Nowadays, more and more people work in open space and glazed offices. Modern buildings provide employees with a lot of solutions which increase work comfort. Unfortunately, there are also buildings in which work tends to be burdensome, especially during hot and sunny days in summer, as sun rays can reflect in screens and strain the eyes. What is more, a lot of work places are not air conditioned or they are equipped with devices which are inefficient when it comes to high temperatures, which results in overheated rooms. Work in such conditions is difficult and work productivity significantly decreases.
