The 21st century workforce has changed drastically, so have the office outlook and productivity factors. Workspace plays a pivotal role in enhancing productivity. While some employees spend more time in their work place than their home they do not get the same luxuries which mean such uncomfortable and unwelcoming places impact their productivity directly. From chronic body pain to mental stress and allergies employees suffer setbacks and their absence directly impacts their organization’s productivity and ultimately the profits.

The Legacy that Speaks
