There are many things that affect a person’s level of productivity throughout the day. This includes the obvious physical attributes such as diet, sleep, activity level and overall health, but did you know there are a number of other factors that can take their toll on your to-do list development?
Visual factors such as lighting, office layout, greenery and more surprisingly- paint colour of the environment you are working in- each have a big impact on efficiency.
It has been scientifically proven that the colour of a worker’s surroundings affects their productivity, but this isn’t a ‘one colour fits all’ solution. Different colours affect people in different lines of work. Certain colours help to increase efficiency, but each person’s unique personality causes them to interpret them differently.
More muted tones, like soft green and pastel blue are the go-to colours for improving efficiency and focus. Their calming connotations aid concentration levels, making it much easier for employees to focus on more difficult tasks. Earthy hues also reduce eye fatigue, making it a great choice for those working longer hours or on a strict deadline.
