The individual wellbeing of your employees is now widely acknowledged to play a crucial role is helping to improve workplace performance.

A recent and comprehensive study* has suggested that working to achieve an improvement in wellbeing will result in improved workplace performance in a number of areas.

These include:

  • Profitability (financial performance of your business)
  • Labour Productivity
  • Output/Service Improvements.

Job satisfaction – including key aspects such as satisfaction with training, skills development opportunities, how much autonomy employees have in their role are also acknowledged to be positively impacted by improving levels of wellbeing in the working environment.

What Actually is Wellbeing?

Before discussing how the wellbeing of individuals can be improved, we must first provide a little background information.

The general term “wellbeing” covers a number of aspects of the way people feel about their lives, including their jobs, and their relationships with the people around them. Whilst it is true that the wellbeing of anyone concerns areas of their life including their own character along with their home/social life, research has concluded that employers can have a significant influence on the sense of wellbeing of their employees by helping to improve the overall working conditions of the workplace.

What Steps Can Be Taken To Improve Wellbeing At Work?

With so many different types of working environment, there really is no ‘one size fits all’ but this does not mean that key improvements are difficult to achieve and the installation of window film can play a critical role in a number of areas.

From effectively dealing with issues such as overheating and glare, to privacy, safety and even anti-vandalism, the installation of window film to almost any property offers a cost effective, low maintenance and long-term solution.

Glare control in particular is essential for all working environments as the visual discomfort caused by an inability to see screens, notice boards and workstations can negatively impact the ability of any workforce.

The Perfect Example

The reception atrium at BioCity in Nottingham had a problem with the sun’s glare making it uncomfortable for staff behind the desk.

This was solved by carefully specifying a solar control window film with enough performance to improve the situation whilst blending in with the existing glazing.

3M CS35 colour-stable non-metallic window film was chosen for its natural appearance but with 57% glare reduction it has been a great success.

The blue and yellow translucent feature vinyl was also installed by ourselves during the original building construction.
