“The ambience and colour of office decor play a huge role in how people feel. Studies have shown that art in the office helps to increase employees’ creativity and productivity by up to 30%”. (Meelimari Arro - Bsc) A recent study conducted by researchers at the Texas A&M University indicates that flowers placed within the workplace greatly increases productivity, creative thinking, and overall job performance. In general, the study reveals that the presence of flowers within the work environment can greatly increase innovative thinking and productivity among male and female workers. BOS, a leading USA based workspace design firm reported that Gensler, an architecture firm, had revealed in their 2016 WorkplaceForecast that workspace design trends, such as Biophilic design, that have grown significantly within most modern companies have become a key area on reshaping how urban workforces work as a whole. Studies like The Human Spaces report on Biophilic Design show that contact with nature in the workplace, no matter how small, can have notable effects on employee happiness and productivity. Research also shows that even using photographs and artwork representing outdoor scenes helps strengthen our connection to nature.
