3 Ways Indoor Plants Help Increase Workplace Productivity

Posted on


Imagine a work environment where your employees are as productive as they possibly can be. Everyone feels good about coming into the office every day, and they have fewer obstacles preventing their best work. You don’t have to imagine anymore because The Wright Gardner can help you achieve this workplace peak with some indoor plants. Let’s take a look at three ways that plants and indoor plantscaping can increase productivity in your office.

Healthier and happier employees1. Happier Employees

According to The Global Impact of Biophilic Design in the Workplace, those who work in an office environment with natural plants, greenery, and sunlight report a 15% higher level of well-being, are 6% more productive, and are 15% more creative. Interior landscaping serves a deeper purpose than creating a pleasing aesthetic. It actually makes people do better work because they are happier. Some high-quality specimen plants can help moderate the noise level by absorbing sound, and this reduction in stress makes employees happier at work. 

2. Healthier Employees

Research has shown that respiratory ailments are reduced by 20%, and sick day absences decline by 60% with the presence of indoor plants and floral arrangements. By absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen into the air, plants make it cleaner to breathe. They eliminate chemicals that lead to poor health. The Wright Gardner can create a custom plant design that will promote a healthier work environment for your employees.

3. It Shows Them You Care

One of the most basic reasons that employees are more productive in a workspace with indoor landscaping comes down to a simple fact. They feel like management cares for their work environment. It’s easier for employees to be productive when they feel that an effort has been made on their behalf. Plus, plants create a comfortable and relaxing space that just gives people a sense of overall well-being.
