Indoor plants can instantly transform your workplace – making it healthier and more productive. And they’re even tax deductible!
People have an inbuilt desire to connect with nature, which researchers call ‘biophilia’. However, many workplaces don’t provide their staff with that opportunity.
Indoor plants bring some nature into your workplace, with significant benefits for your employees and business.
- Reduced stress: a 2010 study at Sydney’s University of Technology found that when workplaces added plants, there was a 37% reduction in reported tension and anxiety; a 58% drop in depression; a 44% decrease in anger and hostility; a 38% reduction in fatigue and a 64% drop in overall negativity scores.
- Reduced sickness and absenteeism: a 2015 report by Human Spaces found that people working in environments with natural elements reported a 15% higher wellbeing score than employees in spaces without them.
- Increased productivity: according to 2014 research by the University of Exeter, productivity increases by 15% when just a few indoor plants are added to a previously ‘lean’ environment. Even one plant per square metre improved memory retention and helped employees score higher on other basic tests.
- Increased creativity: when workplaces include elements from nature, employees score 15% higher for creativity than those in workplaces without, the Human Spaces report showed.
With all these benefits, adding some indoor plants to your workplace seems like a no-brainer. They’re like having a personal air-filter and productivity booster.
But it’s not that simple. Some plants may not be suited to your workplace, with factors like available daylight, temperature and water requirements needing to be considered.
