Last Thursday, when I walked into my office’s reception area, I realised something was missing! I wondered (a lot) – the place got everything: a teak wood reception desk; two freestanding notice boards that were decorated with inspirational quotes (that made my morning every day) and the news about our latest achievements; reception chairs and a centre table – I mean just everything. And, yet there was something missing…
The little green lush plants were missing – for this whole month since I opened my new office, I did not realise how good they would have looked. So, then and there, I called upon some artificial plants UK supplier (got the contact details from the directory) and ordered few green plants. Trust me, now after few days time only whenever I enter the office reception, there is this feeling as if everybody is enjoying their company. All my employees (of course, me too) now work enthusiastically; the artificial plants (though not real) not only have added to the beauty of the overall space but as well have start to promote a sense of tranquillity and well being amongst the entire staff.
However, the factor that I admired the most about the artificial plants is the fact that they are money-saving (after all, I – being a business person – need to take into consideration the expense factor as well). Because unlike real plants they would not wilt or die and thus, would not to be replaced after a period of time; they would let me save on money in the long run. Further, I need not to assign anybody the task of looking after the plants (or, to hire a gardener) as they would require least to no maintenance. None would need to add fertilisers to them or water them on regular basis thereby again saving on expenses on such catalysts. Finally, as none would be spending much of his or her time looking after the plants, we would be saving on time as well and in any case ‘time is money’.
I, in fact, have got one artificial plant for my personal cabin as well – tastefully decorated with fake flowers; the plant does enhance the overall look of the place and let me look forward to my work cheerfully.
