Plant some life on your desk!

It’s a new year and we’ve decided to make SkyWay HQ a greener place and here is why you should make your work space too:

Reduce stress – studies show that just one plant per work space can provide a very large lift to staff spirits

Increase productivity –  cognitive tasks, concentration and focus are all improved, therefore increasing productivity within the workforce. It has been found in numerous studies that fewer mistakes are made and tasks are completed faster

Cleaner air to breathe – there are man made toxins within an office created be plastics, paint, furniture, carpets and certain cleaning products

Increased creativity – in studies plants have been seen to increase creativity by 15% theories suggest that plants being present invoke our ancient instincts that there is food nearby (berries, fruit etc) so we relax, become calmer, are happier and more creative

You’ll look healthier – plants have been found to reduce dry skin 20%, this means we look better as well as feel better
