Does the presence of nature in the work space improve productivity?

Yes.  There are multiple studies showing a positive relationship between the presence of nature in the workplace and employee wellness and productivity. The design think tank Human Spaces reports employees working in environments with natural elements like plants and sunlight have a 15 percent higher level of well-being. This translates into a six percent increase in productivity and a 15 percent increase in creativity.

Think about what a six percent efficiency increase would mean in your business. Imagine one creative idea that turns into the next Uber or Tesla or even Scrub Daddy (look it up). What would you be willing to invest to get there?
