Feng Shui was employed by the Chinese emperors when they designed their palaces with the intention of harnessing natural forces to assist them to govern and protect their people.
Many of these historic Chinese buildings still stand and function as they were intended to.
Today multinationals have begun to employ Feng Shui consultants, including Bosch-Siemens, Hyatt Hotels, the Shangri La Hotel Group, Andersen Consulting Europe, Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, Bayerische Vereinbank, Marks & Spencer, IBM, Virgin Atlantic Group, British Airways, Samsung, Jaguar-Ford, and Singapore Airlines.
A Feng Shui consultant analyzes the influences of a building on a company, and then removes as many as possible of its negative aspects while reinforcing the positive ones.
Buildings that have been designed with Feng Shui, distinguish themselves from other buildings. By avoiding negative factors and enhancing positive ones they radiate harmony and vitality.
To enhance mental clarity, creativeity and innovation, sufficient fresh air and Qi (life energy) are absolute necessities.
A space where vital life energy flows harmoniously has a positive effect on people: they feel more secure, which induces creativity, commitment, concentration, and pleasure.
As a result, companies utilizing such spaces experience less illness-related absenteeism and their employees attain to higher performance levels.
Applying Feng Shui can thus strengthen a company’s productivity in a natural way, allowing management to avoid overt displays of power.
In short, Feng Shui can help a company “go before the wind”, supporting its management strategies and offering it a way of distinguishing itself from its competitors.
It is a special and relatively simple method that noticeably increases company dynamics and vitality, assisting employees to reach their aims more easily.
Feng Shui practices have been adopted by several banks in Germany and Austria including: Commerzbank, Sparkasse Bank Frankfurt, and Bank of Austria.
