According to the OECD, the average number of hours worked on an annual basis is approximately 1,750. Ensuring that this time is spent in a productive and pleasant place of business is an imperative for companies if they wish to retain their best people and be successful. The standard of the built environment in the retail sector will also have an impact on consumers’ shopping habits.

A Productive Business Space

It is well known that a company’s best asset is its people and, consequently, that any improvements in their work performance is ultimately to its benefit.

With the prevalence of open plan offices in particular, good acoustics maximises employee job satisfaction, retention and performance. Statistics show that within a good acoustical workplace environment, stress and the corresponding symptoms are reduced by 27% and that speech distraction is lessened by 51%. Moreover, there is evidence of improvements in the accuracy of work and the ability to focus on tasks by 10% and 48% respectively.


A Healthy Business Space

Stringent health and safety regulations put the onus on employers to guarantee good indoor air quality for workers. Our innovative Activ’AirⓇ technology minimises the threat of those volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are habitually found in the workplace atmosphere. This results in cleaner air and healthier working conditions.

A Robust Business Space

Office and retail spaces typically experience high volumes of traffic, with areas such as entrances, hallways and stairways susceptible to intense use and abuse. Saint-Gobain’s innovative drywall linings are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
