Studies have shown that spending as little as 2 hours per week in nature helps to improve our overall happiness and well-being. In fact, employees who spend time outdoors throughout the day report greater alertness, increased concentration, reduced sick leave, and lower stress levels.
Something as simple as employees getting outside and walking can improve productivity and a greater sense of satisfaction at work. Terracon’s business parks have been built with this in mind. We strive to create welcoming, peaceful environments to promote spending time outside.
Tenants of our parks can often be seen out for a walk during lunch hour, hosting a meeting at a picnic table beside one of the ponds, and even playing badminton and other sports. Seeing people outside and enjoying the park-like setting reminds all of us about the value these environments bring.
For Terracon, it’s about creating spaces where people want to spend their time. From the beginning, our parks were designed to offer access to nature right outside your door. Bringing nature and the workplace together is a big part of our success and it’s something we feel passionate about.
