The Role of Artwork in an Office Building

How much thought did you put into the artwork hanging on your office’s walls? Does it have any artwork at all? Many companies don’t realize the importance of artwork in an office building or understand the role that art can play in the productivity and mood of their employees. Why is art such a critical part of any office space?

Increase Productivity

Numerous studies have found that employees work more efficiently and productively when there is artwork in an office building. For example, one 2016 study found that workers who spent time in offices with plants and artwork were 17% more productive than workers in offices with nothing on the walls and minimal décor.

Decrease Stress

The workplace can be stressful for a variety of reasons, whether it’s employees bringing their personal stress into the office or tight deadlines. With proper design and artwork in an office building, you can decrease stress and help support the well-being of your staff. One 2011 study found that blood flow to the parts of the brain associated with happiness increased by approximately 10% when viewing beautiful artwork. By increasing happiness, you can ease stress—and increasing happiness is as easy as adding gorgeous artwork!

Drive Home Your Branding

Companies spend tens of thousands of dollars and months or years honing their brands, and they should also put the same level of effort into outfitting their physical spaces to reflect their branding. Artwork in an office building can help make your space feel more cohesive, and it can also drive your branding home with everyone who visits. The Chessler Company can help you with every step of the artwork process, including consultation to select pieces that will perfectly represent your brand.

Give Back to Your Employees

Many businesses are struggling to retain employees and looking for ways to add to what they offer to employees without spending a fortune. By decorating your space and adding artwork in an office building, you are creating a nice environment for your employees to be in. Think about it this way—your employees likely spend 8 hours in their bedrooms, 8 hours in the rest of their homes, and 8 hours in your office every day. Shouldn’t you put the same effort into making your environment beautiful that they likely put into their homes and bedrooms?
