High performance and focus for your workplace

Why is Indoor Air Quality IAQ crucial in office environments and how does it impact the health and productivity of employees?

Indoor air quality IAQ problems are not limited to homes. In fact, many office buildings have significant air pollution sources. Some of these buildings may be inadequately ventilated.


Health Impacts

Indoor Air Quality IAQ is crucial in office environments because employees spend a significant amount of time indoors, often several hours a day, and the quality of the air they breathe directly impacts their health, comfort, and productivity. Several factors contribute to IAQ, such as ventilation, temperature, humidity, airborne pollutants, and the presence of allergens.

Productivity and Performance

Air quality has a direct impact on employees' ability to focus, concentrate, and be productive. When the air is contaminated or stuffy, employees may feel lethargic, have difficulty concentrating, and experience decreased cognitive function. On the other hand, good IAQ can improve alertness, mental clarity, and overall well-being, which can lead to higher productivity levels

Cognitive Function

Studies have shown that improved IAQ can positively affect cognitive function and decision-making abilities. Employees in well-ventilated and well-lit environments tend to have better cognitive performance and make fewer errors compared to those in poorly ventilated and dimly lit spaces

Psychological Well-being

Good IAQ can contribute to a positive work environment, enhancing employee satisfaction and reducing stress levels. Conversely, poor IAQ can lead to discomfort and dissatisfaction, affecting employee morale and motivation

Empirical Evidences

Numerous studies have investigated the negative impact of indoor air quality in offices, revealing a range of health and productivity concerns.

The Environmental Protection Agency EPA

Indoor air in office environments can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than other indoor environments, exposing office workers to a higher risk of health issues

Harvard University

Substandard IAQ can cause a 10% reduction in an employee's performance, directly impacting productivity levels

The Indoor Air Quality Association IAQA

more than 50% of office workers reported negative health effects related to poor IAQ. These effects included headaches, fatigue, eye irritation, and other discomforts
