Largest study to date shows LEED Cert has negligible impact employee satisfaction
Tuesday, May 27th, 2014
“The aim of this paper is to investigate the impact on users’ satisfaction in LEED and non-LEED certified buildings of factors unrelated to environmental quality, including consideration of office type, spatial layout, distance from window, building size, gender, age, type of work, time at workspace, and weekly working hours. “
Kate Lister’s insight:
The study also showed that while there may be a bump in satisfaction, post LEED, it diminishes over time. The authors intend to further study what does increase satisfaction.
