January can be a pretty challenging, grim month, right?! 

The post-Christmas lull has truly set in, and between early wake-up calls, grim weather and challenging resolutions, it can feel like the fun is officially over, and winter might never end. 

With team members spending a large part of this month slogging away at their desks or working flat out to meet new year business objectives, workplace morale and motivation can be at an all-time low. 

Left unmanaged, this can lead to burnout that lasts well past the winter months. We believe you can combat this with some strategic yet meaningful well-being initiatives. 

The good news? We have three tips on how you can support your team through the “January Blues”...using plants! 

 

Host a Plant Power Wellbeing Day 

The party season may be over but that doesn't mean the fun needs to end. In fact, your team may be looking for a way to unwind more than ever. 

Whether you're trying to lift team spirits or entice employees back to the office with a fun, relaxed team-building event, our Plant Power Wellbeing Day is the no-brainer choice. 

Throughout the day, you can select all or some of the following interactive elements 👇👇👇

  • Indoor Plant Clinic - all-day drop-by event where your team can consult our plant experts on their indoor plant woes. 
  • "Healthy Plants, Healthy People" - a 1-hour Lunch n' Learn style session where we'll guide you through the powerful benefits of plants on your team's physical & mental wellbeing. 
  • Interactive Plant Workshop - interactive hands-on workshops where your team can get their hands dirty with a fun creative activity. Choose from a range of topics from "DIY Herb Garden" to our customer favourite, "DIY Terrarium".
  • Plant Pop-Up Shop: an indoor plant market in your office where your team can browse a range of plants, ask questions & get matched to their perfect plant. 

Not convinced if this event is the right fit for you?

Here are just of the benefits we’ve seen amongst teams during our event: 

  • Boosted Team Morale: Team members feel valued, connected and re-energised when given the opportunity to step away from their tasks and spend quality time with their colleagues. 
  • Stronger, more Connected Teams: We design our workshops with collaboration in mind. We aim to get team members to interact and work together, even when they can’t be in the same room. 
  • Improved Employee Wellbeing: Sitting at a desk all day can be exhausting and wreak havoc on our stress levels. Spending some time to relax away from their desk gives each team member a chance to unwind. Participants are encouraged to work at their own pace and get creative, adding unique personal touches. 
  • Learn New Skills: At our workshops, team members can switch off, get their hands dirty and learn a new skill that may differ entirely from their day to day roles. We encourage participants to ask questions throughout the session, and we enjoy sharing some of our top plant care tips that everyone can implement at home or in the office to grow happy, healthy plants.

 

CREATE GREENER SPACES 

Plants are pretty powerful! 

Their benefits go far beyond the aesthetic. In fact, research has demonstrated that by just adding some green to your workspace, you can help boost air quality, productivity, focus and overall wellbeing!

At Plant Store, we understand the transformative power that an effective planting scheme can have on your workplace and your team’s morale.

We have a growing number of business & corporate clients that are experiencing the following powerful benefits to their workplace:

  • Improved air quality: By helping to reduce harmful airborne pollutants such as carbon dioxide, plants can have a cleansing effect on a space. 
  • Boosted employee wellbeing: Studies have proven that plants can increase physical and emotional wellbeing, boost morale and increase productivity.
  • Greener, happier spaces: Our aesthetically-pleasing displays stimulate the senses, brighten up dull areas and bring your workspace to life, literally!
  • Whether you’re looking for bespoke plant installations, a plant hire & care service or a Pop-up Plant Shop in your workspace, we can work with you to create a custom plant solution for your business.

    Our mission is to make the experience of discovering the perfect plant for you and your workspace as magical and beautiful as the plants themselves.
