Innovative design-led sustainable products to support today's workplace environment and employee wellbeing.
The open plan office has been the favourite layout for designers and companies for some time. Not only does it make sense for space planning, it encourages teamwork and collaboration. However, this can be to the detriment of noise levels. The explosion in the use of video conferencing has created a new dimension to this challenge. Having a Zoom call in an open plan office is never a popular decision.
Research suggests that noise and distraction impacts wellness, productivity and even financial performance, yet executives aren’t doing enough to address the problem.
In the Oxford Economics study, 63 percent of employees said they lack quiet space for focused work, which has a negative effect on their productivity, satisfaction and wellbeing. Indeed, employees in the noisiest office environments are more likely to say they may leave their job in the next six months.
96 percent of executives see employee productivity as critical to their financial performance, yet just 40 percent understood the link between noise, distraction and productivity.
“Its in our DNA”
The Founders of Welltek, felt strongly based on their own personal experiences that it’s not enough to design workplaces that look amazing. Obviously, everyone wants to work in an environment that looks great – employee pride in their work-place is important – but how healthy a space is, is too often overlooked.
A fantastic office design falls short if there are no private spaces for employees to join an online meeting without disturbing colleagues, or even to speak to their GP in privacy. An ergonomic office chair is an essential requirement but what about
the availability of natural light. Similarly, it’s a great addition to an office to have fresh, filtered water, but what about the air that everyone is breathing?
Our team are passionate about bringing wellbeing enhancing solutions to the workplace without compromising on the design or quality of the space.
We insist on working with brands that are sustainable and practise methods of production that enforce this ethos.
Our showroom is based right in the heart of London’s vibrant creative centre, home to more architects and designers than anywhere else in the world.
We now know that excessive noise can create mental fatigue and distraction. A noisy workplace puts stress on employees who struggle to concentrate and who must find ways to work around the problem.
We care about your air.
Despite public health awareness and progress on outdoor air pollution, progress on indoor air pollution has significantly lagged behind. The quality of air inside offices, schools and other public and private buildings, where people spend a large part of their life, is an essential determinant of health and wellbeing.
Break the stress cycle.
Most of us lead hectic lives, often balancing a busy work and home life. Some stress is normal and can be a good thing for certain tasks and to help you perform however, relentless stress can really take its toll on your sleep and quality of life. It can not only lead to burn out, but long term stress can also have serious long term health consequences if it is not managed.
The link between light & wellbeing.
How to hybrid.
