WELL certification and the power of light: a win-win for workspace and vitality managers

Dear Workspace and Vitality Managers,

In the dynamic world of modern working environments, the health and well-being of employees is increasingly central. A building is no longer just a construction of bricks and steel, but a living ecosystem in which people should be able to perform optimally and feel happy. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is through WELL certification, a globally recognised system that focuses on improving the health and well-being of building occupants.

WELL certification revolves around 11 core topics, including air, water, food, light, movement, thermal comfort, acoustics, materials, spirit, community and innovation. Each of these themes contributes to a healthy and productive working environment, but today we want to specifically highlight the power of light.

The Power of Light

Light plays a crucial role in our daily well-being and functioning. Natural daylight has proven health benefits, such as regulating our circadian rhythm, improving mood and increasing productivity. Unfortunately, natural light is not always sufficiently available in office environments. This is where the power of artificial light, which simulates daylight, comes in.

Simulating Daylight with Artificial Light

Implementing artificial lighting that simulates daylight can have significant benefits, both for employees and for WELL certification. This type of lighting can mimic a sunny day, contributing to improved mood and energy levels of employees. This can lead to higher productivity and less absenteeism.

WELL certification values this application and awards substantial points for it. This looks at various aspects of lighting:

1. Luminosity: The intensity of the light should be sufficient to create a bright and comfortable working environment.
2. Composition of Light: The colour temperature and quality of the light should match that of natural daylight.
3. Customisability by Users: Users should have the ability to customise lighting according to their personal preferences and needs, contributing to a sense of control and well-being.

By investing in high-quality, adaptable lighting that simulates daylight, companies can not only achieve WELL certification, but also create a working environment where employees feel better and perform better.

Conclusion

As workspace and vitality managers, you have the power to make a positive impact on the working environment and employee wellbeing. By pursuing WELL certification and harnessing the power of light, we can work together to create a healthier, more productive and happier workplace. Let's put the human factor at the centre of our building designs and strive for a working environment where everyone can flourish to the fullest.

We'd love to tell you more...
