Common areas - "the living room" of the company
Common areas in companies have been very popular lately. In this space, an employee can relax for a while. Such a space motivates people to communicate more and exchange stimulating information. Large "open spaces" were once created for this purpose. The opposite is true, though. According to Harvard University's study "The Impact of the Open Workspace on Human Collaboration", people working in open space opted for face-to-face communication much less than thought, thus minimizing the social contact to a bare minimum. Therefore, if you own a company with offices or you lead a team, try to create a "living room" for employees instead. The best bet is furniture that supports human face-to-face contact.
Man is a part of nature and therefore it goes without saying that he needs greenery for his life.
