Majority of Urban Workers Tempted to Flee to Suburbs

Citrix commissioned a survey of 5,000 U.S. office workers that hold positions which could be carried out remotely. These are most likely to be knowledge workers who effectively think for a living. 

Source: www.citrix.com

The study found that 70% of office workers who currently reside in cities say they would be very or fairly likely to relocate to the suburbs if it wouldn't impede their career. Lower costs and better worklife balance were cited as the most common drivers (83% and 77% respectively). Other key findings included:

   - 85% say they could do their job effectively from any location

   - 81% felt a rural location would offer better worklife balance

New research documents positive impact of biophilic design on human performance in both simulated and real environments 

Defending his dissertation, Harvard PhD candidate Yin Jie uses VR, eye-tracking, and biometric sensors to measure the impact of biophilic design on human performance.

Source: anfarch.org

Yie Jie conducted three experiments (one with 28 participants, one with 30, and another with one hundred) in an attempt to quantify the impact of physiological and cognitive responses to different indoor biophilic designs. His results showed:

  • Both real and virtual reality biophilic experiences showed similar responses including reduced blood pressure, skin conductivity, and better short term memory. 
  • Compared to the base case environment with no biophilia, indoor biophilic environments in both open and enclosed office spaces resulted in lower levels of physical stress and higher creativity scores.
  • Participants in virtual biophilic environments recovered from stress more quickly than those in virtual non-biophilic ones.

Health impacts depend on what kind of workaholic you are

Health impacts depend on what kind of workaholic you are 

It’s about how you approach work, not how long you spend there.

Source: hbr.org

Work-a-holics possess over work and even if they don't work long hours, they are still more likely to develop cardiovascular disease or diabetes than non-work-a-holics. By contrast, the research cited in this HBR article suggests that while those who work long hours not because they are possessed, but because they love what they do, are generally not at greater risk for serious health problems. The difference appears to be the ability to let it go and refresh. It the chronic rumination that is most toxic.
