GREEN OF­FICES MAKE FOR HAP­PIER WORK­ERS

Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - FRONT PAGE -

Plants in the work­place make staff hap­pier and more pro­duc­tive than those who work in min­i­mal­ist spa­ces with­out any green­ery. Re­searchers from Europe and Aus­tralia found that pro­duc­tiv­ity jumped up by 15 per cent when pared-back of­fices were primped with plants.

Over the course of sev­eral weeks work­ing in greener spa­ces, staff of large com­mer­cial spa­ces in the UK and the Nether­lands re­ported higher lev­els of air qual­ity, im­proved pow­ers of con­cen­tra­tion and a gen­eral in­crease in work­place sat­is­fac­tion.
