Green spaces can help promote focus, productivity, inspiration, and increase happiness. There are many psychological benefits that can be received from adding these areas to your workplace.
Adding plants to your office is something that every employee should want to do. The benefits, both physical and psychological are evidenced in numerous scientific studies.
In a study conducted for the past 10 years, Dr Chris Knight from Exeter University in UK, concluded that employees were 15% more productive when “lean” workplaces are filled with just a few houseplants, as employees who actively engage with their surroundings are better workers – “What was important was that everybody could see a plant from their desk. If you are working in an environment where there’s something to get you psychologically engaged you are happier and you work better,” Knight said.
It doesn’t matter how big or small, but by adding a little bit of the outside to your inside can have dramatic positive influences on your working day.
So, what are you waiting for? Bring some inspiration into your office!
