Most of the office employees need to use computer for a long time, which can causes dry eye and eye drain. Therefore, employers shall pay attention to the following items: 

  • If the office lighting is ideal
  • If there is sufficient anti-Glare and anti-Blue light equipment
  • If the computer screen and related devices are adjustable to fit the work sight for employees of different body shapes

Public awareness on air quality has significantly increased during the pandemic, yet we shall not only focus on the air change. The computers, photocopiers, detergent etc. in office can emit pollutants to damages air quality, prolonged exposure to and inhaling these colorless and odorless pollutants can cause eye irritation and respiratory problems. For the sake of employees’ wellbeing, please note that:

  • Renovation and pest control works shall be done at non-working hours
  • Choose the right air purifier according to the space and change the filter regularly

Air Purifiers



Pantry or employee lounge is a good place for employees to refresh their taste buds and boost interaction with each other! The 3 essential points to enhance taste experience include:

  • Never ask about work progress in the pantry or employee lounge to give them a real moment to rest and unwind
  • Avoid offering the same snacks selection, regular change on the choice not only brings freshness to the employees, but can also create talking point among them and enhance interaction
  • Take care of the preference and special needs in diet for the employees, for example, add in plant milk and gluten-free snacks
