On an average an American spends a major part of his life at his work place.
The office environs and ambiance add to the performance and wellness of an employee. Some of the factors are: temperature, proper lighting, decor and color of the walls and the amount of greenery around.
At the desk it is important for an employee to have a perfect chair, a properly positioned monitor, space to store personal items, soothing sounds and a temperature regulator for his cubicle.
It is also suggested that an employer should provide facilities such as a gym, cafeteria with healthy foods and outdoor seating arrangements for informal meetings.
All these factors are important to an employer because employees have been known to leave a company due to lack of such amenities at their current work place.
