Here at Sloane Staffing, an agency staffing in West Palm Beach, we always suggest to our clients to give their employees the opportunity to work outside, if possible. Especially in the hectic world that is agency life, it is extremely beneficial for people to leave the office for a breath of fresh air every once in a while. Sitting inside all day, everyday at a computer can have serious long-term consequences on one’s health and well being. According to a recent survey as written about in MBG Planet, 87 percent of people said they enjoyed the outdoors, but 75 percent of them rarely or never took their work outside. Humans are not designed to sit in doors all day! This is why companies like Google have created outdoor spaces like lawns and picnic areas for their employees to enjoy. The dangers of a desk job include a greater risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. To avoid this, companies should allow their employees to work outside. Try holding meetings outside, or scheduling team lunches or picnics in the park. Set up a wifi system so your employees can get away from their desks for a little. Nature and natural sunlight has a very powerful effect on us. Working outdoors can improve memory, lower high blood pressure, and improve teamwork. Nature is also a mood enhancer and an energy booster! Besides being a stress reliever, being outside can also help your sleep patterns at night. Employers might want to look into setting up an outdoor work space. If your employees are happy and healthy, it will positively impact your business.
