The University of Oregon (UO) has published a new white paper, “The Impact of Lighting and Views in the Workplace of the Future.”The Impact of Lighting and Views in the Workplace of the Future.”* The paper concludes that daylit spaces with controlled lighting and views can improve occupant well-being, workplace productivity, and satisfaction by positively influencing various physiological and psychological processes. Lighting and views also impact property value and employee recruitment and retention. Light and the visual environment impact nearly every facet of an employee’s life. Lighting directly influences mood and performance during the day and the quality of sleep at night. As new evidence expands the understanding of how specific characteristics of light and views affect human behavior and health, the emergent consensus is that increased access to light, particularly bright daylight, and views during the day can improve productivity and well-being.
