As a business owner, you pay attention to the “bottom line” every day. As a smart business owner, you understand that high employee productivity, good health and satisfaction are the main keys to achieving a successful bottom line. If you could improve your employee’s work environment to improve productivity, reduce stress and increase employee satisfaction, would you?
You can achieve these things by adding indoor plants to the workplace. Research has clearly demonstrated that healthy plants in the workplace:
- Reduce fatigue, headache, coughing and eye irritation by 30%
- Increase employee productivity
- Reduce employee stress
- Reduce absence due to illness. In one Norwegian hospital, absence due to illness fell from 15% to 5% when plants were introduced into the workplace.
Workplace air quality can be improved by use of plants in the workplace. Plants help reduce exposure to harmful substances, such as formaldehyde, toluene, benzene, solvents, ozone and chemicals found in toner. Plants help to remove pollutants from the air. They also help to humidify the air, absorb noise and make the work environment healthier.
