Using Living Walls and Office Plants to boost employee wellbeing
From vertical gardens to interior hanging baskets, the demand for indoor plants is higher than ever, with many businesses opting to make plants a core part of their interior décor. But plants are more than just an aesthetic feature.
Indoor office plants come in all shapes and sizes. From dainty desktop displays to luscious moss walls, plants offer unique benefits that can help your business provide a natural boost to employee wellbeing.
Luckily, filling your office with plants and creating your dream indoor living wall doesn’t have to be hard. Appointing a specialist planting provider, such as phs Greenleaf, will provide a fuss-free way for you to design, source, and maintain, healthy plants in your office building.
The natural benefits of living walls and office plants
Plants are a vital part of our planet; they provide us with food, shelter, fuel, clothing, medicines and homeopathic remedies, without asking for much in return. Using living plants in the architectural design of your building is known as biotecture. Along with biotecture, biophilic design uses the beauty of plants to create interior spaces with added benefits.
You don’t need to add hundreds of plants to your office to reap their benefits. Small batches of indoor office plants can be helpful just as larger displays.
In the workplace, the positive effects of suitable office plants are well-documented. Office plants can:
- Increase staff happiness by 58%.*
- Provide a natural boost to employee focus and productivity.
- Clear the air of dust.
- Reduce incidences of bacteria and mould by half
- Reduce occurrences of irritated eyes reduced by 30%. *
- Reduce employee absence rates.
- Reduce fatigue, headaches, and coughing.
