Upgrade to LED lighting and improve your staff productivity
There are many benefits to upgrading to LED lighting, with the main being saving money. But, did you know that LED lighting can also make you money by improving staff productivity?
Light effects both mood, and staff productivity in the workplace
Studies have shown that light, and the levels of light has a direct impact on a human health because of the way it influences our circadian rhythms. This is because light is the main cue that influences this, by turning on or turning off genes that control our internal body clock.
Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioural changes that follow, roughly, a 24-hour cycle, responding to light and darkness in an organism’s environment.
For shift workers, or people working in buildings with minimal natural light, it is important the level of light is high enough change the natural cycle or ensure the natural cycle isn’t hindered by poor lighting. This is because melatonin (a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland that regulates sleep and wakefulness) plays a large role in effects of light on circadian rhythms. When we are exposed to light, the hormone is suppressed or prevented from being secreted, meaning we are more awake and alert. When we are more alert, we are more productive. When we are more productive, we are more time efficient. Time = money. With LED lighting, we can improve this further…
Benefits of LED lighting over traditional light sources for staff productivity
LED lighting provides a much better quality of light and light output. With brighter, whiter lighting is more representative of natural daylight which helps us to feel more alert, and there is research that to say it helps us to feel happier and more productive. This is understandably a huge advantage in offices, factories and schools.
The blue light in an LED chip has also been proven to have a positive effect on the brain meaning better performance.
…it also saves you money too.
