Human Spaces report reveals the benefits of natural light and green plants
Nearly half of the world’s office workers have no natural light in their workplaces, and 58% have no plants within sight, according to a recent study of over 7600 office workers in 16 countries as highlighted in the Daily Telegraph. It shows that office workers who are surrounded with natural elements, such as plants and access to daylight, are 6% more productive and 15% more creative than their counterparts working in offices without.
We been carrying out new research with workers at offices in Dundee. The presence of natural elements such as plants and sunlight in an office has a noticeable positive effect on workers.
“Customers tell us that office environments featuring greenery and natural light can boost workplace productivity, and increase employee wellbeing and creativity.
“Plants not only improve staff morale, concentration and work satisfaction, but also create great first impressions for visitors to office space.”
The introduction of plants is one of the most cost-effective ways of creating happier workplaces.
“When you compare it with refurbishing or installing new desks and equipment, plant displays are arguably a more cost effective way of revamping and modernising workplaces without any kind of disruption, and they are shown to improve employee satisfaction.”
