Improving workplace health & well-being with sensory gardens

Wellcome Trust, London

This seminar disseminated evidence and encouraged discussion on how sensory gardens can help reduce stress levels of office workers, refocus their attention and improve their productivity.

We lose £100bn per year in absenteeism and presenteeism. One way of promoting healthier workplaces and facilitating workers’ wellbeing is through provision of multi-sensory experiences in sensory gardens, both inside and outside buildings.
