It Might Just Be The Best Decision Of The Year

As an employer you may perpetually be on the lookout for great ways to save money.  This may be one of several ongoing efforts to make everything around you keep moving in the right direction in the ever complicated game of “keeping everyone as happy as possible” including you.

Well there is a solution that may have eluded you until now that we would like to share to help get your new year started on the right foot.  Daylighting is certainly not a new concept and has in fact been put to the test over the years.  There are many studies with pages and pages of data supporting not only cost savings but more importantly employee health and well being.  More important because when you have happy and healthy employees generally you will find that overall morale is improved, productivity is higher which means that your overall expenses and bottom line will be lowered.  Solatube Daylighting is a cost effective way to replace some of your fluorescent lights with natural daylight.  Lighting accounts for 25-40 percent of energy consumption in a building.  Daylighting is an affordable way to bring daylight into dark spaces where natural light had rarely been an option by using advanced optics to improve the way daylight is harnessed.

Studies show that employees who work within a certain number of feet of a natural light source have increased positivity, less anxiety and lower absenteeism.  The human body naturally uses light as a nutrient similar to water or food. Natural light (which contains Vitamin D) stimulates essential biological functions such as:

  • Reduced allergies
  • Reduced back pain
  • Relief from tension headaches
  • Reducing depression.

With the Healthcare industry about to make some significant changes there is a loud buzz about wellness programs and taking steps to help employees stay healthy.  Utilizing Daylight, which has proven to have many positive effects on employees could mean that you might just reap other benefits.  Benefits which are statistically backed that include those qualities that will impact your bottom line which include one or perhaps all of the following:

  • Better performance
  • Higher sales
  • Working better under pressure
  • Able to see the big picture
  • Higher Job satisfaction

As you head into 2013 consider implementing a Daylighting solution. It might just be your best decision of the year!
