It's time for pumpkins, leaves and wheat being added to our fresh arrangements. It's also time for Corporate Meetings like this one. What's more depressing then a schedule of all day meetings just as the summer is ending. With our minds remembering summer vacations, time with family in the backyard cooking hamburgers and hot summer nights, do we really want to be inside? I suspect not but life goes on and this company knows it.
What better way to ease your staff into meetings, seminars and brain storming sessions but by including fresh flower arrangements? Perhaps they heard that Harvard, Rutgers and others have done studies that show that having flowers in the work environment help to stimulate creating thinking!!
As found on the "About Flowers" Website: The behavioral research, conducted by a team at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, identifies the factors most likely to impact 21st century employee well being, commitment and productivity. The researchers found that commitment is largely influenced by one's sense of purpose, feeling of personal impact and overall trust in the organization. Productivity is largely affected by the quality of human relationships including cooperative, social group moods and interaction.
"The results lead us to conclude that workplaces that provide positive environments that foster interpersonal trust and quality personal relationships create the most committed and productive employees," says Nancy Etcoff, Ph.D., the lead researcher on the study.
