When it comes to office interior design, aesthetics is everything, right? While it might look pretty, what about the practical elements of the space; how will people interact with the room? Will it promote creativity and encourage productivity? If you’ve ever worked in a cubicle-style workspace with artificial fluorescent lighting, you know how important these elements are and how much they can negatively affect your health. In fact, corporate wellness has become a huge priority for businesses across the globe, with employee gyms or fitness rebates, stress-reduction programs, healthy employee cafeterias, or weekly fruit basket deliveries now common practice.
While these wellness initiatives can be easily implemented by large corporations, what can small businesses or individuals do to improve wellness at work? Angela Ferguson of FutureSpace, who designed the Google Australia and American Express offices, shares her top design hacks for creating a healthy workspace.
