Studies Find that Lighting in the Workplace Affects Mood


A new study from Forbes came out recently that indicates poor lighting in the workplace affects overall mental health and well-being. 


Bad lighting is associated with a range of negative health effects, including:

  • Eye Strain
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue 
  • Added stress and anxiety in high-pressure work environments 

A study of 7,000 office workers in ten European countries, found that:

  • 80% of office workers said good lighting in their workspace is important to them
  • Two in five office workers said they are having to deal with uncomfortable lighting every day
  • A third of office workers said that better lighting would make them feel happier at work 
  • 25% are frustrated with having to deal with poor lighting in their workspaces 

This is where Valet Energy can assist! Not only do we have a team of engineers that can help office building owners and developers select the best energy-efficient lighting sources for new buildings, but we can also help with retrofits on existing buildings and switching out current fixtures to LED fixtures.
