🌿 Real vs. Fake Plants In The Workplace 🌱

A workspace filled with foliage gives a breath of fresh air amidst the daily hustle. 🌿 But when it comes to incorporating plants, should you opt for the real deal or settle for artificial alternatives?

Real Plants:

🌿 Natural stress relievers: Studies show that real plants can reduce stress levels and increase focus, allowing employees to perform at their best.

🌱 Improved air quality: Real plants act as natural air purifiers, reducing toxins and improving overall indoor air quality.

🍃 Boosted creativity: The presence of greenery can enhance creativity and problem-solving skills, fostering a more inspiring work environment.

Fake Plants:

🖼️ Low maintenance: Artificial plants require minimal care and are a suitable option for spaces with limited access to natural light or where watering is not feasible.

⏳ Time-saving: With no need for watering or pruning, fake plants allow employees to focus on their tasks without worrying about plant maintenance.

💡 Consistency in aesthetics: Artificial plants retain their appearance all year round, ensuring a consistent visual appeal in any season.

In either case plants in the office provide a great element of colour and character, the choice is yours!

Creating an Inclusive Open-Plan Office with the Right Furniture

Creating an Inclusive Open-Plan Office with the Right Furniture

  1. Furniture Placement

Effective furniture placement is crucial to create a functional and dynamic open-plan workplace. Start by grouping workstations or desks together to encourage teamwork and collaboration. Avoid straight rows if not necessary as these can create a dull and uninspiring environment. Use furniture to define different zones in the workspace, such as a lounge area, a breakout space, or an informal meeting area.

  1. Natural Light

Natural light is a fundamental element in creating a healthy and inviting open-plan workplace. Studies have shown that natural light improves mood, energy levels, alertness, and overall wellbeing. Therefore, maximize natural light by positioning workstations near windows, using transparent or translucent screens, and avoiding heavy drapes or blinds that block the light. If natural light is at a premium, consider light tubes to bring extra daylight to the workspace if possible.

  1. Acoustic Privacy

Acoustic privacy is a significant concern in open-plan workplaces, as noise pollution can negatively affect employees’ productivity, concentration, and stress levels. Use acoustic pods, screens, or room dividers to create private work areas, conference rooms, or phone booths. These features enhance acoustic privacy while still maintaining an open plan feel. You can also incorporate sound-absorbing materials, such as carpets, wall panels, and acoustic tiles, to reduce noise levels.

  1. Diversity Celebration

Celebrating diversity in the workplace is not only morally admirable, but it can also have significant positive effects on teamwork, creativity, and overall job satisfaction. Incorporate design features that celebrate diversity, such as artwork, posters, and other decorations that reflect different cultures, lifestyles, and experiences. Additionally, consider features that provide functional diversity, such as adjustable desks and chairs, to accommodate a range of heights and capabilities.

  1. Breakout Spaces

Breakout spaces are essential in an open-plan workplace to provide employees with a place to relax, socialize, and recharge. However, breakout spaces should also be workable, allowing employees to work in a different environment and stimulate their creativity. Use comfortable and flexible furniture, such as couches, bean bags, and moveable chairs, to create a lounge atmosphere for informal meetings, brainstorming sessions, or just a moment of relaxation.


Creating an open-plan workplace is an exciting design challenge that requires careful consideration of multiple factors to achieve a functional and dynamic environment. Use our practical tips and tricks to create a well-designed open-plan workplace and remember to seek input from your employees and adapt the design to their needs and preferences!

Consider64 joins the GBC

Consider64 Joins the Good Business Charter

We are delighted to announce that we have joined companies such as Aviva and TSB in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC), an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, the environment, customers and suppliers.

At a time when people are caring more about who they work for and who they buy from, the GBC offers accreditation recognising organisations that prioritise their ethical values. It has never been more important for businesses to build trust and show that they care about more than just profit. Therefore, the GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.

It measures behaviour over ten components, a few examples of this are:

Ethical Business Practices:

The Good Business Charter provides us with a framework to ensure that we are operating ethically and responsibly. By adhering to the guidelines set forth in the Charter, we can ensure that we are conducting business in a way that benefits not only the company but also our employees, customers, and the wider community.

Employee Retention and Recruitment:

Employees today are increasingly looking for companies that align with their personal values, including social responsibility. By prioritizing ethical business practices, we are helping to create a work environment that attracts and retains those who share our values.

Community Impact:

The Good Business Charter is not just about what happens within the walls of our company; it also has a wider impact on the community and the environment. By prioritizing ethical business practices, we are contributing to a better world, which is something we can all be proud of.


The Charter is an initiative developed and overseen by the Good Business Foundation; an independent charity established by entrepreneur Julian Richer. It is an important initiative that can benefit our company in many ways, and by becoming a signatory of the Good Business Charter, we are committing to do business in a way that benefits everyone involved.
