Tips for a Healthier Orlando Office
The Orlando office worker spends about ⅓ of their life at work. With so much time being occupied by their job, it is important for your office configuration to be comfortable and most of all, healthy.
What makes a work environment healthy? Lots of healthy snacks? In office gyms? A small botanical garden at your desk? Maybe some field trips outside? The list of possibilities is endless, which is why we did some of our own research to come up with a few tips. Follow along to keep your Orlando office employees happy, healthy, and productive.
Lighting is everything
First thing’s first, let the bright Orlando sun boost office morale by taking down the light filtering cubicles.
Our designer’s favorite thing to see in any office transformation is the amount of natural light the whole office receives once the big, bulky, and outdated office cubicles come down to give way to a more collaborative environment.
Keep it moving
Next, it’s time to get moving! Recent studies suggest that employees that have jobs that require more sitting should stick to the 20-8-2 rule. For every 20 minutes spent seated, they should stand for 8 minutes and walk for 2.
An easy solution to this is adding adjustable height desks to your Orlando office. This will allow employees to filter through their inbox while standing, allowing the blood to flow, resulting in less desk fatigue.
Now let’s talk about plants. While not everyone has a green thumb, plants certainly have their place in the office.
With Orlando receiving an average for 205 sunny days a year, it make sense to add a few air filtering friends to the office landscape. Not only can plants improve air quality, the boost in morale might surprise you.
Wide open spaces
A large break room with plenty of comfortable seating along with healthy snack options is another great way to take care of employee's health.
By offering large upholstered booths with spacious worktops, employees can get a change of scenery while taking a short snack break and still remaining productive.
