Benefits of Having Plants in the Workplace

In recent years, there has been a growth in the understanding of how a happier atmosphere in the workplace not only benefits employees, but it can have a positive impact for an employer too. There are, of course, different ways in which you can seek to improve the welfare of those within your business, but a good place to start is by focusing on the working conditions.

Back in 2014, a study conducted by three universities across the UK (Exeter), Netherlands (Groningen) and Australia (Queensland), helped to get this ball rolling. They reported that ‘green offices’ could ultimately lead to an increase in productivity by up to 15%. 

They found that by having real plants in the workplace environment, staff perceived an improvement in the air quality and that they had a better level of concentration. Further analysis went on to suggest that by making the office a greener space, employees felt more physically, cognitively, and emotionally engaged in their work. 

It’s not rocket science, but anything that contributes towards enhancing office wellness is likely to raise employee retention and must be worth considering in your business.

What Plants Do Best in the Office? 

The simple answer is that you don’t need to worry, because at Bush Bristol we have got you covered. Meanwhile, the longer answer is that the plants that usually thrive the most are those able to withstand low levels of light and less watering, for example the peace lily or the spider plant. 

By using our service, you can get plants for your business without any hassle. We will review the workspace that you have and select the plants best suited to the space and light that is available within.

We can also take a more bespoke approach if needed. For example, if your office is pet-friendly, then we would take that into consideration when making our selections, as some plants can be toxic for animals if ingested.

Included within our packages will be the regular maintenance and care for the plants that we provide, so that you don’t need to worry about keeping them in good health yourself. Instead, we’ll make sure that they stay lush and green, contributing to a more relaxing ambience for your work colleagues.
