Plants in the workspace

New research indicates that office workers are more productive in environments which are enriched by plants and decoration.

A paper published by the American Psychological Association explored the impact on productivity and workplace satisfaction of adding plants to office spaces and compared these to stripped-down environments. Staff worked better and were more satisfied in spaces with additional decoration and the researchers recommend the addition of plants and decoration to all work-spaces.
