It’s an average morning at work and you’re sitting there going through your emails and as you’re sipping on a hot coffee in a styrofoam cup, the teammate working nearby tosses his first plastic water bottle of the day in the trash bin under his desk. At the same time, someone around the corner is changing the printing cartridges and throwing the used ones away while someone else opens an energy bar wrapper in the breakroom. You go to write something down on your notepad but the pen has gone dry, so you throw it like a basketball at a bin across the room, swish! The amount of single-use products that office workers use in a single day can really be astonishing. For someone who works in an office, the average amount of waste they generate is4.4 pounds per day. Then if you consider the number of people who work office jobs, the amount of waste created becomes almost unfathomable. Much of this waste can actually be recycled but the current infrastructure and patterns of behavior in most American offices has left us with a waste-generation problem. Recently the issue of microplastics, a symptom of the disease that is plastic waste, is creating serious health risk issues for humans across the globe, potentially including yourself.

While technology opens the door for more dynamic workflows, new levels of flexibility, and speed, the latest tech alone is not the future of the workplace.
When it comes down to employee productivity, you need to consider how culture, the physical workspace, and ever-evolving technology come together to create a space that employees can thrive in. With a single disengaged employee costing an organization approximately $3,400 for every $10,000 in annual salary, it’s in every company’s interest to make the workplace a space people can do their best work in.
