Additional Details

Through integrating health, wellbeing, and ‘smarter working solutions’ from the start through the use of Cradle to Cradle Design™ principles, the headquarters for Plantronics at Park 20|20 improved the productivity and performance of employees and delivered a healthy return to the developers.

By calculating from the difference in a pre- and post- occupancy Leesman index survey, the perceived productivity by the building’s users saw an increase of 11.7 percent. When projected on the number of employees and the average revenue per employee, this increase in productivity represents an estimated value of €2.1 million per year. The survey revealed significant improvements in employee perception of the workplace features and services supporting their health and their ability to be productive. 91 percent of Plantronics employees say the office design creates an enjoyable work environment, and all say they’re proud to host visitors there. Additionally, more than 90 percent of people surveyed believe the workplace has an impact on environmental sustainability, an issue that resonates with most workers and shows support for the ethos of the office park that houses the Hoofddorp building, known as Park 20|20.
