Why we need art in the workplace

Written By Bianca Bouwmeeser Neumann On 22 Nov 2016

Today’s fast-paced, overworked and underpaid society is becoming trapped within a dangerous dogma: from morning until night, we’re just zombies, on the hunt for fresh coffee and racing through deadlines to remember, only at the end of the day, that we’ve missed soccer matches and music recitals or we were meant to run down to the supermarket to fetch something for dinner. Why do we need art in the workplace?

In a world like ours where, too often, we shut ourselves off from our natural environments, many studies have proven that visual stimuli can help us take a moment to be still, quiet our minds and reset our internal clocks with workplace art. What does it mean for your business? More focused staff, higher levels of motivation and happiness, less spillage/wastage in production lines and better customer service, which leads to an increase in sales!

Motivational quotes are great but can sometimes make employees feel as if they’re just numbers, trudging through a system that only tells them they need to keep pushing further and harder to achieve their employers’ targets. Using tranquil images or points of interest can actually help staff zone out, percolate some of their best ideas and allow for more creative thinking and problem solving. 

IMG_1459Above is an example that works so well – our very own Printwild office! Charlotte and Prenessa face this beautiful piece on a daily basis and it really helps to escape work stress and concentrate on keeping our customers happy. We even have a stunning canvas print mounted up in our stairway, for everyone to enjoy and marvel at on their way to and from the kitchen:

Why art works - at work!

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
