Flowers and Plants in the Workplace
A recent study conducted by top corporate and business analysts has shown that a happy and productive workforce is the key to gaining the edge in both competitive business as well as the overall economy. One easy way to make this happen is for business owners and executives to supply beautiful flowers and plants for their employees to enjoy throughout the workplace. This advice was recently backed up by a study in the United States, sponsored by Texas A & M University, with the help of The Society of American Florists.
The theory the study was meant to prove or disprove, was how the incorporation of nature into the workplace could affect the success of that business. They were looking to create an environment that included both flowers and plants and how that environment would influence the work habits of the employees. During a study that stretched over eight months, researchers created three separate environments and solicited scores of volunteers to participate in a series of creative and problem-solving tasks while working in each of the created environments.
The three environments were created following specific guidelines. One was to include fresh flowers and plants, one was designed with no decorations whatsoever, and the third area’s décor was limited to sculptures and other pieces of small artwork. The researchers hoped to prove whether workers in the natural environment, filled with flowers and plants would test higher in their tested pursuits, than in either of the other two engineered environments.
Men proved themselves to be more creative and provided more insights and original solutions to problem-solving tasks 15% above the average ideas produced in the sterile and art inclusive environments. Even more astounding was the finding that women, exposed to the same environments as the men, scored even higher in the natural environment, coming up with even more creative solutions to everyday business problems surrounded by plants and flowers than in any other environment.
With the full support of The Society of American Florists, who had provided the plants and flowers for the testing, the news of this development for corporate clients was astounding and florists everywhere decided to create programs geared towards helping businesses create their own successful and creative environments. Because all of us at Nature's Wonders Florist cherish our business clientele, we have developed our own program for promoting creativity through nature. We call it our Corporate Services Program.
