- The company, which sees increased profits because fewer sick days are taken and workers are more productive.
A greener, more energy efficient workspace also means money saved on reduced electricity and water consumption.
“Productivity is the biggest payoff, but because there isn’t a lot of hard data to document this, people often discount these claims as anecdotal,” said Joe Ring of Park Towne Corporation at 402 Gammon Place, Madison.
“Some businesses have reported increased productivity, fewer work days missed, and less turnover after moving into a green building. The most expensive cost for any company is salaries. If productivity is increased by just one percent, that’s a big savings for many companies.”
