Plants in the office as barriers
Why not use office plants to delineate areas and teams? They allow you to implement social distancing measures easily and, as you’re using plants instead of tape to mark spaces, your employees benefit from a green and aesthetically pleasing office.
A 2016 study found that cognition can be boosted by 26% in green workspaces, and that people’s wellbeing and productivity improve with plants around them. This makes a great case for adding green barriers to the office.
Replacing furniture with plants
If, because of social distancing or decreased staff capacity, you have to remove desks and office furniture, you don’t want the space to look sparse and empty. Some offices are set to operate a split office-home week, and in these instances reducing office furniture is likely. Adding plants in these newly vacated spaces is an attractive and vibrant solution.
Plants in the office help with anxiety
A fantastic benefit of plants in the office is that they ease anxiety and stress levels, perfect to help with the current circumstances.
Plants reduce stress at work, as they help people feel calmer and more positive. Both having visual access to plants and being allowed to care for them (passive and active involvement) can have a calming effect. So, by adding plants to the workplace, you can help your staff fight anxiety and stay relaxed.
