Driving positive commercial outcomes

As the world changes and adapts to the new normal, employee well-being is as important as ever. While conversations circle around designing offices to facilitate social distancing, sanitizing, and Zoom calls—it’s important to take a holistic approach to workplace wellness.

 

Acoustic wellness is often overlooked, but studies show that without acoustic treatment, office spaces can quickly become noisy, stressful environments. Symptoms of prolonged exposure to auditory stimuli range from tiredness and distraction to pain and high blood pressure. Over time, these symptoms can lead to decreased productivity and staff dissatisfaction.

 

How can office design contribute to, and improve, well-being in the workplace?

Since its launch, Australian Volunteers International has enabled more than 15,000 volunteers to respond to challenges across the Indo-Pacific region as part of the government’s international aid program. Architects Dasch Associates and designers Jonik teamed up with Autex Acoustics® to create a stunning Etch™ feature wall for their new workspace—representing their global work efforts through a sprawling world map decal.

workplace

The modern office is nigh unrecognizable alongside the drab, beige cubicle maze of the 80’s and 90’s. From standing desks and ergonomic mouse pads to in-house naturopaths and flexible hours, the workplace wellness trend is transforming the way we live, work, and play. However, with the popularity of exposed brick, polished concrete, and floor to ceiling glass in contemporary office design, acoustics are often an afterthought. To help you design better workspaces, we’ve collated seven valuable insights into acoustic wellness…

wellness 
in

workplace

“While much focus is placed on the ergonomic health of an office space, it is fair to say that considerably less is given to creating a healthy acoustic environment—despite evidence that poor acoustics can have detrimental effects on employees’ wellbeing. Acoustic treatment can drastically reduce excess reverberation and echo in office spaces, particularly in open-plan applications. They can contribute to employee wellbeing, decreased absenteeism, and greater productivity and profitability. This whitepaper will provide a detailed examination of the effects of poor acoustic treatment in the office, and how these issues may be mitigated through the smart specification of high-performance acoustic solutions.”
