Some Australian businesses are making strides in the right direction by incorporating art and abstract painting into the workplace and they are noticing subtle changes. If your staff are working in a typical office environment where they are sitting at their desks for the vast majority of the day, it is nice to look away from the screen and admire the wall art. It should be the aim of every business owner to create and maintain a safe and inspiring work environment.
If you have never really thought about adding some tasteful art to the workplace to increase productivity and motivation, then here is some food for thought.
- It provides the perfect break – If your workers are constantly looking at a computer screen all day long then you can expect them to get tired eyes and sore backs. You should be encouraging them to step away from their desktop PCs throughout the day and so if you have some beautiful art on the wall then this is then to refocus their eyes and to also appreciate something quite wonderful.
- It improves their creativity – Art has always encouraged us to look inwards at ourselves and at our lives; which can spark creativity. By putting up some beautiful pieces of abstract art, it can help to stimulate your employees and help them to think more creatively.
- It improves productivity – Many employers have already seen the results of their investing in paintings and other forms of art, and are now reaping the benefits. A more enriched workplace has led to employees being happier in their environment and they are more motivated and more productive as a direct result.
Invest in some office paintings for your business today and create a place of work that people want to come to every single day.
