When considering whether to invest in plants for your work place, consider this – work place stress costs American businesses up to $190 billion every year; in healthcare costs alone. Bringing nature into the office can have a big impact on employee well-being, reduce sickness and absenteeism.
The cost is clearly worth the results received from incorporating plants and biophilic design into your office. Not only do plants help your employees in the office, they have been shown to increase productivity as much 15 percent and improve creativity by just as much.
Incorporating nature into the workplace can take many different forms including living green walls, indoor trees and planter boxes. Typically, installation can occur during the normal work hours, but can also be done after hours depending on the needs of the specific client.
Once the plants are installed, Raimondi Horticultural Group can also service all maintenance. In most scenarios, this is the best options because no further training is necessary of the already employed staff and no extra responsibility is placed on the company for successful implementation. As far as production workflow within the company, it should not be disturbed. The addition of plants to an office should only benefit and enhance the company and its productivity.
Not all plants will love to live in your workplace:
- Consider restrictions such as the availability of daylight
- How often they can and will be watered
- Those that will thrive in workplaces include succulents (which include aloe and cacti), rubber plants and peace lilies
- Offices with less natural light should integrate plants with fewer care requirements
- Offices with more natural lighting have a different range of plant varieties available to them
