As society advances and evolves, so do the spaces we work in. Today, the cubicle office is recognized as a thing of the past. People want to work in an environment that’s social, comfortable, innovative, and flexible. And contemporary office furniture is making this possible.
Contemporary office furniture looks nothing like traditional office furniture. Furniture that was once designed to promote privacy and quiet, individual work has now been abandoned for comfortable lounge areas, portable devices, tech integrations, and nature themed designs.
But why the sudden change? Studies have found that switching to this type of furniture can actually boost office sales and productivity.1 The bottom line is, when your employees are happy, your business is happy and more profitable. And the furniture you choose for your office has a direct impact on employee health and happiness.
In today’s day and age, going “green” is almost a norm. Eco friendly items can be purchased for your home or office both in store and on hundreds of websites online. But why then have we as a society not yet made the same changes in our schools?
This is an especially important question because there are so many benefits that can be gained from adopting green practices in educational settings. By switching to eco-friendly school furniture, high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools can teach the importance of sustainability to their students and also do their part to protect the environment.
