Fresh Flowers As Productivity Boosters

1. Decoration

Looking to redecorate your office but don’t want to spend too much? Fresh flowers are a creative way to add colour and life to the office! Colours ranging from purple, pink to yellow flowers, these bright flower colours would instantly redecorate the office.

The flowers can be placed around the office, on the side, and even in the lobby. Visitors would feel more welcomed if they entered an office with a vase of beautifully arranged flowers. It might be a subtle change, but it would make a significant impact on your office culture and atmosphere.

2. Boost Atmosphere

Research has shown that employees are generally happier in an environment with fresh flowers and plants at their workplace. Putting flowers or plants in places where everyone could see from their desk acts as a mood lifter and brightens up people’s day whenever they feel jaded after a long day of work. It always feels nice to see something beautiful in the office!

3. Improves Memory And Concentratio

A scientific study was done whereby 3 different scents of flowers were used in a memory test; rosemary, lavender, and an unspecific scent. Depending on the scent, there were varying test scores on the memory test, indicating that certain flowers improve memory and concentration. People exposed to the lavender scent scored lower due to lavender’s calming and soothing properties compared to people exposed to the rosemary scent, which scored the highest in the memory test.

4. Improves Air Quality

If you’ve been listening to your Science classes in Primary school, you should know that plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen when undergoing photosynthesise. Most offices are air-conditioned, and the air might be a little stale and dry. Plants and flowers improve air quality by generating oxygen in the office and absorbing harmful compounds from the air that causes asthma and nausea, among others.

5. Flower Arrangement Workshop
