BUFFALO GROVE, IL – November 8, 2010– Ambius, the premier global creator of ambience for businesses, announces their first global Twitter chat on December 1st 2010 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT/1 a.m. GMT featuring Kenneth Freeman, Head of Ambius University and International Technical Director in London, England. 

Join Ambius' conversation on Twitter using hashtag #ambius and get in on the discussion. Moderated by New York public relations and social media consultancy, Vorticom Inc., Kenneth Freeman will discuss the environmental benefits of plants as well as ground-breaking research from University of Exeter and Ambius that demonstrates that designing one’s own workspace improves health, happiness and productivity.

 "Our research demonstrated that employees who have control over the design and layout of their workspace are not only happier and healthier — they're also up to 32% more productive," says Kenneth Freeman, Technical Director at Ambius.

Studies by the University of Exeter's School of Psychology revealed the potential for remarkable improvements in workers' attitudes to their jobs by allowing them to personalize their offices. "The findings challenge the conventional approach taken by most companies, where managers often create a ‘lean’ working environment that reflects a standardized corporate identity," adds Freeman.

 "There is a growing body of research that demonstrates that access to a natural environment indoors may improve health and well-being, aid in the prevention of disease and help people recover from illness faster," adds Freeman.  "Environmental enhancements known as evidence-based design (EBD) feature a holistic review of a building’s physical space including the total sensory environment of sight, sound, touch and smell.  EBD is credited with having a healing impact on employees’ well-being, mood and safety."
