Behind the Scenes: Top 5 Plants in Our Corporate Office
Lately, we’ve been making our workspaces feel like home – literally, for many of us. Whether at your kitchen table, your home office, or back at your trusty cubicle, adding a variety of plants does wonders for both productivity and mood.
Here is a peek behind the curtain of how we embellish our corporate office with greenery!
What is horticultural therapy?
Before we unveil our favourite houseplants, allow us to tell you about horticultural therapy.
A time-proven practice, horticultural therapy – roughly defined as garden therapy – uses plants, landscaping, gardening, and all horticultural activities to promote wellness. The therapeutic benefits of gardening have been documented for centuries. Horticultural therapy helps improve cognitive abilities, memory and socialization.
Whilst this kind of practice is centred around gardening, it has also been proven that simply being in the presence of plants offers many benefits:
- Superior attention span and concentration
- Increase in productivity and creativity
- Faster recovery time
- Lower stress levels
- Better indoor air quality
Behind the scenes of the Groupe Nordik offices
Because wellness is important whether you are at the spa or the office, we’ve dotted the latter with a wide variety of greenery to bring some sunshine and fresh air to everyone’s desk.
Our artisans working at the spa also get to experience the benefits of horticultural therapy. Curious about what grows at the spa? Read our blog about 5 plants to discover at Nordik Spa-Nature.
Here are our top five office plants:
