Morillas case study: how to improve work performance
Morillas is a branding agency founded in Barcelona in 1962. They do consultancy based on 3 important points: strategy, creativity and technology and help leaders envision, craft and develop their future potential, turning ideas into successful business & brand strategies.
It’s a company of more than 100 people, that has headquarters in Barcelona, Madrid, Tel Aviv, Miami and Guatemala.
Even if you are working remotely or in the office, computers, laptops and any kind of digital devices are almost mandatory involved in your working routine. From strategists to designers, being in front of a screen in Morillas is unavoidable: 95% of their employees use digital devices on a daily basis. Does it sound familiar?
All these devices emit blue light. Recent studies have shown that overexposure to blue light from digital devices may be detrimental for health being eye strain, headaches and disruption of sleep cycles the most common side effects. This is why protecting your eyes can be a game changer.
Our goal is to improve the digital life of Morillas employees and their productivity on their daily work. We will achieve it by handing a pair of our screen glasses to each employee in the Morillas’ team in Barcelona; a total of 55 people will receive a welcome pack after COVID-19 lockdown, that will include a pair of Barner blue light glasses. We will check after a month the results of wearing Barner everyday by sending out a survey with several questions.
This approach will help us to see how the side effects of blue light affect the working routine of any person that has to work with screens, and in consequence their performance at their job.
