Shine the light on untapped productivity. But simply flipping the light switch won’t make this happen.
The workplace experiment of the pandemic didn’t move the needle. Daily productive hours ranged from 1.75 to 2.5 hours a day before the pandemic – remained so during the pandemic – and will likely stay low post pandemic, unless you make a change.

Collaboration is king! So, companies blew away walls and cubes. But studies show doing so causes workers to be more distracted and collaborate less. Look closer and a natural truth will shine through.
Daylight is a hidden productivity booster that escapes many. Those who are rewarded window offices are the “winners.” But everyone else is a loser … productivity loses … and your company loses. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Push the offices away from the windows and unleash a natural line of light for all workers. But don’t take our word for it.
The Harvard Business Review illuminates this truth.
