A recent study by researchers at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA, found indoor air quality to be a contributing factor in office worker productivity.
By changing the air quality of a controlled office environment during a six-day, two-week experiment, researchers found high ventilation with low volatile organic compounds led to an increase in worker performance and cognitive functions. Additional research into facilities with green certification also found workers had scored high in work performance.
The study recommended facility managers maintain a healthy indoor environment to benefit worker productivity.
