What an Aquarium can bring to your office environment
An aquarium fish tank installation can totally transform your your office. Once in place, it will bring numerous benefits with it. Here are four advantages that an aquarium installation can bring to your office environment.
The movements of colourful fish, the waving of luscious green weeds, and even the bubbling motion of the water through the aquarium filter will all help to add a sense of variety to your office environment. If you place the aquarium in a spot where clients or other people will be waiting – such as your office’s lobby – this varied aquatic environment will give them something interesting to look at and significantly reduce the possibility that they will become frustrated or bored if they need to wait to be seen for any reason.
- A personal touch
There is something very individual about an aquarium – it helps to add a sense of personality to any office. Giving your aquarium fish names, or adding a few quirky decorations into the aquarium will enable you to show off a more creative side to your office’s personality.
- A positive brand image
A clean and well kept aquarium will help to project a very positive image for your brand or company because it will show that you care. Many psychological studies have found that we tend to associate animal lovers and people with cherished pets with good qualities such as kindness, empathy, caring, and a sociable and down to earth attitude. These are certainly qualities that you would like to have associated with your company, too. In order to ensure that you project this advantageous image, though, it is crucial to ensure that your aquarium installation is kept in excellent condition, filled with clear water and healthy and happy fish.
- Keeping your staff happy
The presence of animals in any workplace environment has been shown to increase the happiness of the staff. Similar positive effects have also been found in schools and universities, where therapy dogs or other special therapy animals have been used to help to calm down students feeling stressed out during the exam period. An aquarium installed in your office will help to calm the people working there, and dissipate any stress amongst the workforce. Similar effects are experienced when office buildings provide their staff with a beautiful natural view – this is part of the power of nature: it is able to calm our minds as we are working.
