Office Lighting Tips for Productivity

With the busy and hectic schedule of workers here in Sydney Eastern Suburbs, it is wise to invest in office lighting to boost work productivity and efficiency.

Projects left and right, and tasks near their due dates. Most office workers don’t have the luxury to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the environment as they are stuck doing their jobs to earn a living. But, what if we increase the aesthetics in the workplace? Your employees would surely enjoy the space and would not feel stressful at all. They might even appreciate going to work and finish that urgent task immediately.  

How can you do that? Office lighting has been proven effective as a mood changer for employees. In a study conducted in Europe, about 80% of the office workers said that lighting is a vital aspect for them to finish tasks and projects. But, 40% are experiencing bad lighting in their work environment. 

So, as the owner or manager, it is your responsibility to provide what your employees want. In this way, you can support their drive to be productive, so you can also get top-quality outputs from them. 

Here are some office lighting tips to boost productivity in the workplace:  

Be as Natural as Possible

Most of the workers’ entire day is spent in an office. While it is vital to utilise the use of indoor lights, there’s nothing more beneficial than maximising the sunlight. According to research, natural light is the best medicine for workers. It reduces eyestrain and headaches of employees by 84%, which is truly essential as most people stress out when working a project. Exposure to natural light for about 13-15 minutes is enough to release endorphins or happy hormones. 

Moreover, you can cut costs from electric bills when you invest and build the workplace with more office windows where the sunlight can strike exquisitely.  

Adapt Colour and Temperature 

The lightings’ colour and temperature must adapt to the function of the space and the time of the day. Cool lights such as blue and white are suitable for enhancing concentration and staying awake, which are beneficial for productivity. On the other hand, warm lights such as yellow and orange are better for relaxation. 

Cool and bright lights are perfect as daylights to help your employees concentrate and stay alert. Meanwhile, warm lights are suitable as nightlights to help your employees cool down a stressful day.  

Plan where to install the lights depending on their purpose. And when in doubt, you can always ask lighting electricians for guidance. 

Invest in Energy-Efficient Lighting

While it is essential to safeguard the well-being of your employees, you must also consider what energy-efficient lights to install to reduce electric bills in the long run. Investing in power-saving lights such as LEDs, halogens, and CFLs will help you minimise the electric expenditures and help save the environment at the same time.  

Moreover, smart lights such as motion-sensors and lights with timers for bathrooms and parking spaces would help your office save power. They will only function when there is a person in the area or during the time set. Also, dimmer lights can adjust when the task doesn’t require maximum brightness.  

Install Security Lighting

As per the NSW’s Work Health and Safety Regulation, it is your responsibility as an employer to ensure your staff’s safety. You can achieve this by installing security lights in the vicinity of the workplace. These are lights specifically installed to provide brightness at night to keep away robbers and unwanted individuals to illegally enter work premises. 

Most of the time, security lights have motion sensors and alarms with them, alerting the establishment or authorities right away. With security lights, your employees would feel safe and not worry about outside threats.   


As a business owner or manager, you want to boost your company’s revenue and put up a good reputation on your brand’s name. You can accomplish these things if you treat your employees the right way. With proper and better office lighting, you can earn your workers’ trust and increase work productivity.
