A message from Professor Sir Cary Cooper

“The work environment has always been recognised as essential to  employee well-being and performance but often purely as a ‘hygiene  factor’ – an element which can only have a negative impact if  organisations get it wrong. It’s no coincidence that the most modern  employers now take a different view, designing environments to help  people thrive, collaborate and be creative. Being connected to nature  and the outside world is a big part of that, and research is struggling to  keep pace with the best practice that organisations are adopting to make  that connection happen at work. This new research report is an important  and practical piece, summarising existing research on the different  approaches to biophilic design and their impact, and building on it with  a new study of real employee perspectives on what inspires them in their  work environments across EMEA countries.”
