SSC President, Jennifer Woofter, was recently quoted in Buildings, for an article that explored if lighting plays a role in workers' productivity. According to Buildings, "Eye strain, headaches, low mood, poor concentration, absenteeism, and job dissatisfaction – even a few minutes working under the wrong lighting can kill productivity."
Jennifer Woofter weighed in on the topic" Lighting plays such an integral part in collaborative spaces.

That's done intentionally to set the tone and maximize interaction. "
She further adds, "It plays a huge factor in how a person perceives the workplace."
