Green Offices are Making Workers better at Their Jobs

Article By: Convene

"Biophilic design (when living green plants are integrated into office design) also has scientific backing. Workers exposed to greenery in their daily work lives report a 15% higher level of well-being, are 6% more productive, and are 15% more creative. Strategic placement of certain plant types has also been proven to reduce noise and create a less stressful environment."

"In addition to providing a boost to efficiency, implementing green office upgrades gives employers a chance to involve team members in the decision-making process and give them a level of autonomy over their workspace."

"We often think of green buildings as some kind of advanced workplace, when really the ‘traditional’ workplace wasn’t built with humans as the priority.” To move ahead, we must be willing to leave the old behind us."
