STUDY: A healthy building leads to a more productive workforce

A new study which appears in the September 2010 issue of the American Journal of Public Health finds that an investment in a “greener” facility pays dividends for employers.

Researchers from Michigan State University evaluated the physical and mental health status of people who moved from traditional spaces to “greener” office buildings. The employees were asked about absenteeism from work in both types of buildings, specifically for health ailments including asthma and allergies. The researchers found that absenteeism associated with these conditions decreased in the new facilities by more than 50%, dropping from 1.12 days per month to .49 days.

Improved facility air has been sited widely for its direct and immediate impact on allergen levels and airborne chemicals, both recognized triggers for those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
