Greenspace, LLC: A Business Plan
by Ezzeddine, Nada A., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 61; 10840321
Abstract (Summary)

The incidence of mental health-related cases in the United States today is largely attributed to employee work conditions. In particular, healthcare professionals are at increased risk of mental-emotional health adversities due to constant stress, burnout, and fatigue that act accumulatively, leading to subjective, physical, and behavioral consequences. As a result, healthcare workers become an occupational hazard and a hindrance to an organization's service delivery. The lack of adequate job resources and positive work climate can additionally curb operational efficiency and has been found to influence the intensity of psychiatric morbidity symptoms among employees. To remedy such professionally-adopted maladies, organizations can develop programs aimed at reducing stress and burnouts to increase the health and wellness of their employees. Having an all-inclusive green business plan such as that of GreenSpace, LLC's consulting company will supplement and fill in the gaps of existing research regarding the benefits of exposure to greenery and mental health in the healthcare workplace. Through the adoption of green and environmentally conscious workplace setting designs, companies can expect to attain significant market value and economic return annually. GreenSpace, LLC adopts the concept of green building by designing sustainable and health-conscious work spaces within the healthcare sector that seek to improve employee wellness, fuel environmental sustainability, and thus increase its clients' corporate profit. The company intends to distribute its services within the Orange County area; where over 10% of its working population belongs to the largest healthcare industries and employers. GreenSpace, LLC is poised for success and promises to target this industry. The subsequent business plan will include an analysis of the market, feasibility, SWOT, legal and regulatory issues, and assumptions for expenses under which the company will distribute its services.
