Creating a workplace environment that is engaging, friendly, and stimulating can be a challenge for every business. One way to address this challenge is by bringing art to your workplace. Here are 10 reasons why.
1. Art makes people happy.
There are dozens of studies that have proven art is one of the biggest factors in satisfaction in the world. In fact, in one study, researchers found that people associated their interaction with artwork. Put simply: artwork is linked directly to psychological well-being.
2. Art reduces stress.
Art is a great way to reduce stress. This is because art has a way of promoting self-awareness, which in turn changes a person’s neural processing. Even the most laid-back work environments can sometimes be stressful, so including art in your workplace can help employees stay calm and content.
3. Art encourages creative thinking and problem-solving.
Even at a young age, children who engage with art are more likely to adapt, problem-solve, think creatively, and be independent. This response to art continues for our whole lives, and can make a big difference in your workplace.
4. Art creates a stimulating environment.
Artwork takes bland, blank walls and transforms them into a beautiful and engaging exhibit. Creating a stimulating environment in your workplace increases employee satisfaction and productivity, allowing your business to thrive.
5. Art increases productivity.
Taking a moment to enjoy artwork gives the brain enough to reset, refresh, and regroup to continue working hard. When increased problem-solving skills meet a stimulating environment employees are set up for success, resulting in greater productivity.
6. Art is a great conversation starter.
People love discussing artwork. Having art in the workplace gives employees a chance to comfortably share their own opinions and ideas, leading to confidence and assertiveness.
7. Art provides a theme for a workplace event.
Your employees and clients deserve a unique workplace event, and an art-themed event could be perfect for your business. Consider hosting an event featuring an art exhibit paired with wine and cheese, art-themed activities, and discussions about artwork.
8. Art charges your brand.
Do you value creativity and innovation in your business? Displaying an art exhibit shows the world that your brand is creative, and can be a great way to show your values to potential clients.
9. Art displays give you a chance to support artists.
Displaying an art exhibit is a very real way to support living artists in the work they are doing. If you are looking for ways to show your appreciation and support for the people creating artwork you enjoy, this could be the perfect opportunity.
10. Art shows your business is relevant and creative.
Creating a workplace that makes use of beautiful, calming, and enticing artwork shows that you as a business owner are dedicated to creating an environment where you put your employees’ well-being first. This not only helps attract talented people to work for you; it also tells clients that you are mindful, innovative, and likely a pleasure to work with.
