The rapid changes in the way we work today have consequences on our physical and mental health, productivity, engagement, and retention. Through research, we now have an increased awareness of how our physical surroundings have a significant impact on our work, decisions, behaviors, and overall health and wellness. As we spend 93 percent of our time indoors, we should be mindful of the workplace design decisions we make in order to achieve human sustainability.
