Staff costs, including salaries and benefits, account for up to 85 to 90 per cent of a company's total expenditure, which when added to energy consumption and rental outgoings has a huge impact on a company's cost base. When it comes to staff attraction and retention, research indicates tenants are placing thermal comfort and indoor air quality second only to public transport proximity in their top workspace priorities.
An overwhelming body of evidence published over the past decade draws a clear link between best practice indoor environment and the savings that can be gained from healthy, happy and productive staff. The following indicative estimates demonstrate the clear benefits of high-performing buildings for tenants and aim to provide evidence to build a business case for choosing a best practice office.
When translating this high-performing building scenario to a 1,000sqm office, it's estimated up to $950,000 could be saved per year.
