Independant research shows the benefits of indoor plants in work environments:
Live, healthy indoor plants can save you money by reducing employee absenteeism and lost productivity and improving the overall health, wellbeing, and creativity of your staff.
International and Australian Research shows that humans are more calm, productive and creative in the presence of lush, healthy plants. Specifically, research comparing employee absenteeism and general mental health between offices with and without plants showed that employees who have living plants in their workplaces exhibit:
All of these plant benefits generate real savings for employers and business owners. They also have the extra advantage of helping create and sustain healthy, happy staff and workplace environments.
Plants naturally filter toxins and pollutants called Volitile Organic Compounds, or VOC’s common in all modern indoor environments.
VOC’s are responsible for employee absence due to symptoms associated with sick buildings syndrome such as allergies, asthma, fatigue, headache and sinusitis and contain a mixture of toxins like benzene, toluene, and xylene.
Office products and indoor furnishings including floor coverings, curtains, paint computer screens, inks, paper towels and photocopiers secrete VOCs into the air and make us sick, tired and lethargic. This costs employers and businesses thousands of dollars in lost productivity and absenteeism.
Installing plants will naturally cleanse and filter the air in your room or office and provide your employees with the clean, fresh oxygen they need to thrive.
All humans have an intrinsic need for affinity with nature. This need is called biophilia.
A study at the Bank of America found that employees exhibited significant productivity gains, less absenteeism, less health problems and a better sense of well-being after their biophillic needs were met by installing plants inside buildings and offices at the bank.
Ultimately, satisfying employee’s biophillic needs with plants translates to productivity increases and bottom line savings.
In 2008, Nordic academics found that good interior design incorporating plants, bright lighting conditions, windows, and cooler colors, stimulated employee creativity and could therefore contribute to an organisation’s capacity to innovate and generate positive outcomes for their bottom line.
A study conducted by Dr. Virginia Lohr showed that research participants who worked in the presence of plants were up to 12 percent less stressed and more productive than those who did the same work in an environment without plants. Reducing employee stress lessens instance of staff turnover, absenteeism and increases staff morale.
