How Plants Can Increase Productivity
Incorporating plants into the workplace can not only make your work atmosphere more pleasing, but can also enhance creativity and boost productivity. In a study at the University of Exeter, employee’s effective output was measured across varying business spaces.
Offices that allowed staff to make design decisions in the workplace, including office plants, saw a 45% increase in creativity and 38% increase in productivity. Plants are proven to aid concentration, reduce sick days, reduce stress, enhance employee attitudes, and improve air quality.
Plants can also help to muffle unwanted and distracting noise; a small indoor plant can reduce sound by five decibels.
