With fit-outs booming, businesses are starting really taking charge of their brand, core values and their workplace atmosphere. With companies moving into a more relaxed atmosphere, the work coming from it is anything but relaxed… Studies were undergone on 10 high performing businesses in the US and the results emerged that green-certified offices were seen to have a 26% boost in cognition, 30% fewer sickness related absences and reported a 6% rise in sleep quality.
Furthermore, studies were also taken out around the world, producing more outstanding results. Exeter University in South West England, reported a huge 15% increase in productivity once plants were brought into the office. A green office led to a boost in employee engagement, concentration levels and clearer air qualities.
Green offices are also seen to provide clarification and delay gratification. Resulting in Dutch studies providing sufficient evidence that greenery in the offices of decision makers help in their long-term goals, strategies and decisions. So, the real question is what are you waiting for? If the pros are better staff morale, health benefits and productivity increase you are basically losing the green without the green.
