Designing the Work Environment for Worker Health and Productivity

Jul 01, 2003

The topic of worker productivity in offices is examined and a typology of ways of evaluating productivity and links to worker health is offered. Using examples from current research, a theoretical framework for increasing knowledge of the effects of environmental design on health and performance of workers is outlined. This framework is based on the concept of comfort.
