6 Ways Window Blinds Improve Workplace Productivity

admin

It’s been a productive morning at your desk so far and you’re on a roll. All this time though, something’s nagging the back of your mind. You shake it off – it must not be important if you can’t pinpoint it right away. As the day gets closer to high noon, you suddenly notice you’re perched at the other end of your desk, with your body contorted in such an impressive angle that Cirque du Soleil would hire you on the spot.

Escaping sun glare is a battle that’s waged every day across office desks. It’s unavoidable because most buildings have a strong focus on “daylighting” design.

It’s one of those ideals that’ll never fade and may even get revived with new vigour for each new generation. Think back to the time when you were growing up and how your parents would constantly harp on you to turn off the lights or T.V. when you’re not using them. You probably got irritated every time they did that because they’re obviously nagging for no other reason than to be annoying, right? But then you grew up, started dealing with bills, and realised that every electricity use amounts to a higher bill at the end of the month. That’s when you truly understood the wisdom behind your parents’ nagging and why you must start enforcing the same rule with your own kids – perhaps even more fanatically than your parents!
