Workplace Research

We analyze the connections between health, well-being, culture, engagement, performance and the built environment to inform effective design innovation.

Health & Human Performance

Research demonstrates that inspiring and sustainable spaces promote occupant health, well-being, and productivity. We're partnering with the Harvard School of Public Health and its SHINE initiative on a first-of-its-kind study to measure  health and human performance at the organizational level. Shining a Light on Worker Well-being highlights EYP's participation as well as our own related research.

Is Your Workplace Working for You?

Studies show that unhealthy work habits, like staring at computer screens and rushing through fast-food lunches are taking their toll in the form of increased absenteeism, lost productivity, and higher insurance costs—but it doesn’t have to be that way. AMA recently spoke with Leigh Stringer, author of The Healthy Workplace.
