These days, it can be difficult to meet all of the needs of your employees. How can you possibly replace that annual company picnic? How can you, as an employer or manager, demonstrate that you care? Your team may be back in the office, trying to navigate a new normal–or they may be working entirely from home–or it may be some combination! Office plants can be a relatively low maintenance, portable, and virtual experience that can keep your team active in areas outside of the spreadsheets.
Research shows that nature in the workplace makes for a preferred work environment. Even if that work environment is at home. Positive job satisfaction, job commitment, and lower work stress are just a few of the benefits that researchers have connected office plants to. Having green in your space, especially during a time where our activity outdoors is so limited, can have a positive effect on mental health and morale. Plants are a straightforward way for a company to give back to employees and care for their wellbeing.
Employees can take their desk plants along with them for those days when they’re working from home–all while staying active and connected. Now, interaction between employees is even easier with our networks. Every member of your team can belong to your team’s network–it’s a platform where they can post, share photos, find plant care info, and bond over their green friends. Want to see how a coworker’s plants are doing? Need to read an article on the best way to feed your plant? It can all be found on your network. Every enterprise network is custom to your office. The teambuilding possibilities are endless.
Individual members of your organization can get their very own plants for their desks, or can collaborate with others to care for your office’s greenery. The plants can be named and cared for, without requiring a huge commitment. We do most of the heavy lifting by keeping track of the timeline in which plants need to be watered and fed and letting you know when that time comes. Many plants that we recommend do not need constant care or sunlight. To top it all off, any direct questions about a plant or its care can be directed at our gnome coach, who is always there to serve you. Most of your time with the plants can be spent just enjoying their presence.
With Gnomesy, caring for plants around the office is easy and affordable. We start by matching you with the perfect plant fit for your space. Then, we set you and your employees up on the network so that everyone can have access to plant care info and updates. Your team members can choose to receive text reminders to care for their plants–no more marking the calendar to remember when to water! If anyone has any questions, the gnome coach can be easily reached via text to answer it. We make it simple for everyone to be able to enjoy the calming and focusing aura of a desk plant.
