Memo to All Bosses: Give your Employees a Natural Boost!
Administrative Professionals Week April 23 to 27th
Flowers have a way of saying ,”Job well done!”, “Thanks for all that you do for me!” – And a lot more. One of the most surprising things to me, (even after being in the floral industry for over 30 years), is the genuine look of sheer delight & happiness on the face of recipients when you give them a bouquet of flowers.There is always something so powerful about receiving and giving flowers.
Several studies out there show that live flowers and plants in your daily surroundings actually have an uplifting effect, and in some cases have been shown to help with productivity and even stress relief! So for all you bosses out there, this happens to be a great ”side-effect” of making someones day!
“Our study shows that adding flowers and plants to a work environment can be very meaningful to business in the modern economy” ( Roger Ulrich Ph.d from Texas T&M). In a study by the State University of New Jersey, done only a couple of years ago, researchers found that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness, no matter the age or gender of the recipient. When floral arrangements were placed in a public area- such as foyers, conference areas etc- they lead to better communication between people!
Now that’s what I call ‘Flower Power’!
