Why have plants in your office?
Office plants show that your company cares about:
- The office environment.
- The health and well-being of your staff.
- Your corporate image.
- Make us feel better physically and mentally.
- Increase productivity and reduce absenteeism.
Part of our human make up is to enjoy the look and presence of plants; they are aesthetically pleasing. Plants soften sterile interiors, they create a focal point and they can be used to divide areas or screen. They bring nature to work.
Just as importantly, they have been shown to significantly improve the air quality inside buildings by absorbing toxins and raising humidity. There is strong evidence to show that office plants help to reduce the effects of Sick Building Syndrome, itself the result of toxins, dry air and dust.
Controlled experiments have demonstrated that the presence of office plants really does increase productivity and reduce absenteeism at work.
