Not just nice to have: Nature in the workplace makes employees happier and healthier

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceResearch

Abstract

Bringing nature into the workplace can help reduce stress and increase creativity and focus, research shows.

Some researchers suggest humans have an innate need to be connected with nature. This is called biophilia. But as housing density, commute times, and office hours increase, we are spending less and less time in natural environments.
