Recent studies suggest indoor air quality (IAQ) and productivity of employees are related factors. Healthy air quality directly contributes to the performance of staff.
Better air quality translates to fewer pollutants in the air and more oxygen. Improved oxygen flow to the brain results in better cognitive performance, while symptoms of oxygen deprivation include a decline in cognition. Understanding the relationship between the two topics will help employers improve both air quality and the health and performance of their employees.
The quality of the air we breath has a tremendous impact on our health and wellbeing. Taking action to monitor, understand and account for poor IAQ is one of the most significant commercial considerations facing building and facility managers today.
