How does lighting affect employees?

In any space, we need light. Indoors and outdoors, lighting is essential. We need lighting to do a job, set up a piece, write news, avoid accidents, or study for a test. We use lighting for almost everything.

But sometimes, when the light is not right, we can have issues, so how can lighting help to improve workers’ well-being?

Natural light has a positive impact on workers’ well-being

According to research made on North American employees, employees can feel an increase in their overall happiness and well-being (78%), work satisfaction (73%), work performance (70%), and organizational commitment (54%) when they have access to natural light and views.

When employees don’t get enough natural light in their workspace, they feel tired, and gloomy by the lack of the light.

The employees’ well-being is one of the significant keys to productivity because when they are fulfilled, they can improve their performance.

Human-centric lighting in buildings with no windows

When workers don’t have the right lighting, they experience a negative impact on their ability to work, so what can we do to solve this?

Thanks to advances in technology, with tunable white LED lamps and lighting control, we can simulate sunlight indoors, which can be a way to avoid circadian rhythm disruptions. Kumux has developed a system that automates a circadian light rhythm based on geolocation, date time, and activity to get the benefits of natural light in indoor spaces.

For example, for an office worker or a call center worker, a lighting system that is synchronized with the circadian system improves mood, increases alertness at work, improves nighttime rest, and reduces the risk of chronic health problems.
