Office workers increasingly concerned with air quality

29th May 2023

More than two-thirds of office workers would be less likely to work for a company which failed to be transparent about indoor air quality, a survey from rating firm AirRated claims.

AirRated’s Our Air in Review survey of 1,400 office workers in the US and UK also found 78% of employees would be more likely to come into the office if it had a healthy building certification.

It also found that 81% of office workers believe air quality monitoring should be mandatory for all office buildings, however only 26% of organisations are committed to monitoring indoor air quality in their commercial space.

A healthy office building was rated as the most important factor by staff, ahead of location and office layout. 

However, 71% of decision-makers surveyed said cost was the greatest barrier to making buildings healthier.
