Adding plants to any office space can have huge benefits, both visually and health wise.
Believe it or not but adding a plant to an office can improve air purity. They can help to remove manmade toxins from the air, and can also reduce the amount of dust, mould and bacteria that employees are breathing in.
Employees who work in offices where plants are present tend to use fewer sick days than those who work in plant free environments. How crazy is that?! Plants can help people to concentrate, and in turn increases office efficiency. Adding plants to an office space has been known to increase employee productivity.
Not only do they have health benefits, but they can make a room look a lot more appealing to both staff and visitors. Adding a pop of green brings the outdoors in, and therefore creates a calming atmosphere. Add a larger plant to your reception area to create calmness for visitors. Planters can also break up sparse areas of desking.
Adding them to your breakout areas can make a huge impact. If your breakout area is homely, the chances are your staff are likely to open up to each other. Having an inviting breakout area also creates a space for informal meetings and collaborations.
