Hanging art in your office doesn't just make the walls look good, it makes business sense, too. Not only does it give a professional first impression to visitors, the right art can improve the atmosphere and motivation of workers.
You don't have to spend a lot of money on art to project an image of success and spark conversation with clients. One or two bold pieces in the reception area will be enough. The use of colour and shape can impact the mood of workers, creating a calming, energising or inspiring space.
If employees spend a lot of time staring at the computer screen, there are health benefits to providing a visual focus away from the screen. So now you know it's an OH&S issue, there's no excuse not to buy art for the office by the truckload! And of course, if the business is in a creative industry, then having stimulating and inspiring art on the walls will also encourage creativity.
