They can help workplace productivity
Flowers look and smell amazing, but that’s not all they do! Studies and scientific evidence have proven that having flowers in the workplace can increase our ability to work better. This is for a number of reasons, for both men and women.
A study that was carried out in America over an eight month period, found that both men and women performed better in an environment that was decorated with fresh plants and flowers. This was in terms of innovative thinking, generating good ideas and problem solving.
On average if found that there was a around 30% more ideas generated in an office with flowers than when in an office that was sparse and dull.
Who doesn’t like the smell of fresh flowers on a dull Monday morning? Flowers in the office are guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face. Flowers are brilliant for perking everyone up, including visitors attending meetings at your office.
Looking at bright, colourful flowers instead of drab colourless office walls is to start everyone’s day off in a good way – therefore creating better work.
A happy workforce is a productive workforce!
