What are the different office scents that can improve productivity?
So, how do office scents have an impact on productivity? Well, different scents invoke different feelings, and if your staff are feeling happy and content in their work, they are more likely to work harder, and be more productive. Some fragrances you could consider, include:
- Lemon- citrus scents, like lemon in particular, are a great option for lifting the spirits and creating a sense of freshness and positivity around the workplace. These scents are also associated with cleanliness and hygiene, which will have a positive impact on any potential customers or clients that visit too.
- Lavender- calming and relaxing the scent of lavender is often associated with a good night sleep. But using this in the workplace wont make your employees fall asleep, it will just help them to relax. And relaxed employees are more likely to take on new and daunting challenges, and work together more effectively.
