Successful consultant walks the walk after watching TED: The Power of Time Off

Successful consultant walks the walk after watching TED: The Power of Time Off

Late last week – my husband would say, on a whim, I decided that what I needed most was time off from work. The inspiration was this TEDx talk by Stefan Stagmeister, who takes an entire year off every seven years.


And I thought I was bold taking this week off. Well sort of, I worked mostly half days. Still, it's been a much needed relief following a grueling Fall of speaking/travel.

Workplace Design for Well-being

Workplace Design for Well-being

Today, there is an emerging opportunity to use workplace design to promote a holistic state of well-being for people at work. When organizations provide work environments that support user control, natural elements and daylight, and changing postures, they address the physical and psychological health of people—enhancing engagement, creativity, innovation, and retention. Good workplace design fosters well-being—which leads to success for organizations.


A great read from one of the most respected workplace strategy researchers. It's very much in line with the results of our Workplace Wellness Calculator which shows, the CBRE WELL certification cost only $51 per employee over LEED Gold (over 15 year amortization period).

What that means, among other things, is that if:

  • .9 employees stop being obese or don't become obese, OR
  • 1.2 employees stop being chronically stressed, OR if
  • .9 employees stop smoking, OR
  • .5 employees stop being depressed, OR
  • if employees increase productivity by .25 minutes per day, OR if
  • .1 fewer people leave the company for health reasons

the WELL investment has paid for itself.

It seems hard to believe, but I'd be happy to share the simple math with anyone who asks.
