Are you looking for a unique and effective team-building activity to show appreciation for your employees? There are many types of fun activities that could elicit participation from a group of co-workers, but perhaps none are as therapeutic as arranging flowers. The Wright Gardner recently hosted a floral arranging team building event with the staff from a top law firm in San Francisco. This type of team-building activity is the ideal way to foster a relaxing environment while employees connect with each other, and we’ll tell you why.
What Happens During the Team Building Event?
The Wright Gardner recently hosted the staff from a law firm for a floral arranging course where participants learned the basics of floral arranging and each had the opportunity to create a beautiful arrangement to take home with them. This experience allowed them to learn something new, exercise their creativity, and spend time connecting as a team. Our experienced instructors guided the group step-by-step through the process, providing helpful tips and tricks along the way. We understand the valuable impact that plants can have on businesses based on the more than 30 years of research dedicated to this subject.
The Impact of Plants on Your Employees
Having plants as a fixture in your office is proven to create a comfortable and relaxing space that gives staff a sense of overall well-being. When a company provides and maintains plants for their employees, they are communicating that they care for the work environment. In one study alone, workers demonstrated 12% more productivity with plants present. Since plants are known to provide many benefits to people in the spaces they occupy, why not plan an event around plants for your staff to encourage these benefits and welfare?
