A healthy versus unhealthy office environment

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

In an interesting use of the before-and-after slider, this Washington Post graphic by Bonnie Berkowitz and Laura Stanton contrasts an unhealthy office environment against a healthy one.

As a whole, the graphic represents a full office, and the section is broken into categories for an unhealthy environment on the left and a healthy one on the right. For each section, slide all the way to the left or right to see a fuller picture of the respective habit, covering topics such as ergonomics, hygiene, and air quality.

FYI: Rats and dead plants send the wrong message to your employees.
