Dr Roger Ulrich says, ‘Flowers help you to be more productive at work’

Beloved Flower Lover,

University study shows Flowers & Plants Promote Innovation, Ideas and workplace productivity.

In today’s economy, it is more important than ever for businesses to enjoy their talent for meeting the needs of the client.  Fluctuations in unemployment, productivity, consumer confidence and other major economic factors make it important for businesses to realise how they can respond.

A recent scientific study conducted at Texas A&M University finds that nature can hold the secret to business success. The research demonstrates that workers’ idea generation, creative performance and problem solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants. According to University experts, the key to generate the talents necessary to encourage co- operative productivity in the modern economy is easy; it’s a happy, productive workforce.

“Our research shows that a change as simple as adding flowers and plants can be important in the most meaningful way to businesses in the modern economy,” said Dr. Roger Ulrich, lead researcher on the project. “People’s productivity, in the form of innovation and creative problem solving, improved – which in certain circumstances could mean the difference between mild and great business success.”

Research Findings:

In an eight-month study, the Texas A&M University research team explored the link between flowers and plants and workplace productivity. Participants performed creative problem solving tasks in a variety of common office environments, or conditions.

The conditions included a workplace with flowers and plants, a setting with sculpture and an environment with no decorative embellishments.

During the study, both women and men demonstrated more innovative thinking, generating more ideas and original solutions to problems in the office environment that included flowers and plants.

In these surroundings, men who participated in the study generated 15% more ideas. And, while males generated a greater abundance of ideas, females generated more creative, flexible solutions to problems when flowers and plants were present.

“We know the importance of learning, for example, how natural surroundings affect drivers, school children, and hospital patients,” said Ulrich, who has conducted extensive research on the effects of environments on psychological well-being, stress and health. “To businesses, it should be equally as important to understand what features can improve performance at work and make employees more productive.”

Keep on eye on that, if this sounds good, let us know and let’s have a chat about what we can do for you.

Peace and Joy
