There’s no doubt that greener offices promote happier and more productive workplaces. When indoor office plants are cared for and nurtured, they are highly beneficial to our health and wellbeing. They contribute to a healthier indoor working environment by providing cleaner air, reduced sickness and stress leave, and increased productivity and job satisfaction.
By implementing a healthy green office, your staff will feel appreciated and know that you care about them and the image that your business delivers to visitors and prospective clients.

What are the benefits of indoor plants in your office?
As mentioned above, indoor office plants play a major role in creating an environment to help your staff to flourish and your business to thrive.
Studies and research have shown us the many benefits of adding interior plants to your workspace.
Reduction in Sickness and Absenteeism
Due to the many health and well-being benefits, placing plants around the office has been reported to decrease minor illnesses by 30% and reduce absenteeism by up to 50%.
Office environments can be noisy places and can often be overwhelming and distracting. Indoor office plants are useful in decreasing noise through absorption, deflection, or refraction processes. The results are instant. Green Walls, in particular, are very effective at refracting sound due to the large volume of plant coverage.
Increased Productivity & Creativity
According to a study by Exeter University, having a few plants in the workplace increased well-being by 47%, productivity by 38% and creativity by 45%, because employees who actively engage with their surroundings are better workers. This is good news from a business profitability view.
Cleaner Air to Breathe
Indoor plants are our best friends when it comes to the indoor air we breathe because they do the exact opposite of what we do. They release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. They help to remove harmful toxins known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from the air we breathe. These toxins are commonly found in our indoor environments and caused by plastics, carpets, paints, cleaning agents and furniture.
Certain indoor plants can bring about 50% reduction in CO2 levels, bacteria and mould. Plants can also reduce dust levels by up to 20%, this is good news for allergy and hayfever sufferers.
An office with a biophilic presence using indoor plants creates a more welcoming space. Considering we spend a great deal of our time in the indoor built environment, it makes perfect sense to bring nature indoors to enhance our workspaces.
Our environment has an impact on how we feel, think and act. Because indoor plants filter the air, improve the humidity and enhance the environment, it’s highly likely your employees will feel healthier and happier at work. This can help to increase job satisfaction and overall benefit the success of your business. When your workers thrive, your business will thrive.
