Employee productivity + creativity can be improved by working in natural environments, finds a study presented at ARCC 2015 by Symbiosis principal Giancarlo Mangone

Diverse natural environments improve worker performance for a range of work tasks, according to a new study presented at ARCC 2015 in Chicago by Symbiosis principal Giancarlo Mangone. The results of this study indicate that current work environments are ineffective at promoting worker performance. Companies can substantially increase their profits, and improve worker well being, by incorporating innovative, higher performance workspaces. To this end, a number of natural environments have been found to be particularly effective.
