With 79% increase in demand for symptoms of stress in the past few weeks, it’s more important now than ever to think about how your office environment impacts your workforce. 

Plants are a great addition to the decor of any office space that can also have a highly positive impact on employee well-being, and with a significant rise in searches for the “best office plants” (1200) coinciding with increased interest in stress symptoms in the past few weeks, it seems like the workforce has cottoned on to the benefit this simple office add-on can have. 

Studio Alliance has looked into the top benefits of office plants and which ones are the best to decorate your office with.

The top five benefits of having plants and greenery in your workspace include:

1. Reduced anxiety and stress

Plants improve cortisol levels and suppress the system in our bodies that get activated when they sense distress signals

2. Improved air quality

The well-known process of photosynthesis cleans the air by taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.

3. Heightened concentration levels

By removing carbon dioxide from the air, we are able to focus more on our work and increase our attention span.

4. Improved productivity

Similarly to concentration, the more oxygen in the air, the better brain function and, therefore, productivity.

5. Fend off mental fatigue

Poor air quality can cause fatigue, headaches, and dizziness. Plants improve the air quality, helping us feel more awake.

For those businesses that are looking to incorporate some greenery into their office spaces, Studio Alliance has created a list of plants that are best for an office while also being low-maintenance:

Aglaonema wishes

This plant is said to be lucky and can tolerate low light. Aglaonema will bring positive energy and luck to your office space, as well as a fun pop of colour.

ZZ plant

These plants have air purifying qualities and thrive in all sorts of conditions. They do best in indirect sunlight but can also tolerate low light, low humidity, and even spaces with no windows.

Peace lily

Like the ZZ plant, the peace lily has air-purifying qualities. Keep these plants in a well-lit area but out of direct sunlight; water them weekly; and spritz the leaves occasionally, particularly during the summer.

Snake plant

These plants are hard to kill as they don’t require lots of water or sunlight to grow. They only need to be watered every two to three weeks, and they always make sure their soil is completely dry before watering to prevent root rot.

Spider plant

Allow the long spiderettes to dangle without disruption, whether from a hanging basket or a pot in the corner of your desk. This plant grows well in low-light conditions but needs to be watered frequently to keep the soil moist.
