If your desk looks as dreary as the current weather, it might be time to invest in a potted plant.
The Human Spaces Report studied 3,600 office workers in eight countries throughout Europe and examined how adding elements of nature into workplace design can increase the overall happiness, creativity and productivity of employees.
The report, conducted by organisational psychologist, Professor Sir Cary Cooper and Interface, found that:
:: 63% of European officer workers now work in a city which can limit their access to natural elements
:: More than half (55%) don’t have access to any greenery in their workplace
:: 7% of workers have no windows
Office plants offer an inexpensive way to gain access to a lovely bit of nature. But which one do you go for?
The issue with many plants is that they can't thrive indoors as natural light is scarce, meaning that buying an office plant isn't as easy as it looks.
We've picked out the best kind of greenery you want for your work environment.
