In this video, you can learn more about the economic impact of the commercial real estate industry. In 2011 alone, the industry generated a total of $264 billion. That was enough to create more than 2.4 million jobs in professions ranging from engineering and construction to property management and law.

The short answer is yes, but it can be difficult to justify a greater investment in commercial real estate for intangible benefits. Even so, worker salaries are one of the largest expenses of any business, and even a modest increase in productivity can provide a huge advantage. Take a closer look at how the design and layout of a commercial real estate property affects employee productivity:
It Can Make Employees Happier
In a recent poll from Microsoft, 90 percent of employees linked workspace design to their bottom-line productivity. Whether your workplace focuses on the privacy of cubicles or a more open-ended design, having the square footage to efficiently plan your workplace layout is essential. There have been several scientific studies confirming the correlation of workplace happiness to productivity. For example, data gathered by a survey in The Wall Street Journal shows that happy workers are twice as productive, stay five times longer at their job, are six times more energized, and take significantly less sick leave than disgruntled employees.
It Can Make Employees Healthier
Not only will a poor commercial real estate location reduce productivity, but it can also strain employee health benefits. “Sick building syndrome,” or SBS, is a condition which causes a range of medical problems, including headaches, dry or itchy skin, eye, nose, and throat irritation;, difficulty concentrating, dizziness and nausea, and fatigue. Although studies have linked various cases of SBS to a variety of factors such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or indoor/outdoor chemical contamination, there is no specific cause of SBS, which can make it a complex problem to address for large businesses.

Leadership in in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is awarded to businesses which make an effort to reduce their environmental impact through sustainable engineering and energy-efficient measures. Reducing energy consumption not only offers several financial benefits, but it can also improve overall employee health and productivity. Read on to see how LEED-certified commercial real estate can help your business with:
An energy-efficient infrastructure can help protect your business’ interests and public image. LEED-certification optimizes your building’s efficiency beyond the code-required minimums, thereby minimizing your business’ ecological impact and reducing the risk of future lawsuits.
LEED-certified buildings cost less to operate and maintain. By moving into an LEED-certified commercial real estate building, your business will either save on utility costs directly or have more leverage in negotiating a lower rent. Additionally, data from the USGBC shows that obtaining LEED certification for existing commercial buildings can reduce operating costs by as much as 8.5% and increase building value by 6.8%.
Going green isn’t practical from a financial standpoint; it also improves your visibility and reputation with both potential clients, especially if they are the “green” industry or are looking for an eco-friendly company to do business with. In fact, a case study in the American Journal of Public Health reported that LEED measures improved employee productivity by 2.6%. LEED certification can also qualify your business for regional and federal government tax credits.
