Why Companies should invest in Art in Their Workplace

The world of art and businesses are closely related, in many ways. First, some of the most important paintings are held by powerful CEOs on the planet. But buying art should also be used to make the workplace more interesting. In fact, a study from the University of Exeter has shown that employees working in an office with artwork are 15% more productive. Here are a few reasons why companies should invest in art in their workplace.

Understanding the Power of Art  

If you walk into a Doctor’s office, you will probably find yourself looking at a work of art bought from a corporate buyer catalog. Although it doesn’t mean that it won’t look pretty, it will also not provide the effect that you are looking for, from powerful art. The goal of such artwork is to be safe so that it won’t shock anyone. That is not the kind of artwork an office needs.

When you take an art class, you learn how to judge a painting according to its time in history. There are many elements inside artwork that you need to look for if you want to understand it. Who are we seeing on it? What is the message the artist is trying to send to his contemporaries? That is to say that art is something that is supposed to move you because it possesses a deeper meaning. Thankfully, an art gallery online can help you with the choice of artwork to position in your offices, so that you send the right message to everyone that works there, but also to those that visit. Even if you don’t know the first thing about art.

Complete Your Brand’s Vision with Art

The one thing that CEOs understand best is vision. If they did not have one in the first place, they would not be where they are today. This is a good way to start when you decide to include powerful artwork in your offices. You need to go back to the roots on which the company was built and revisit the root sap so that you start looking through these lenses at the works of art, searching for those that are sending out the same vibe and/or message that you built your empire upon.

But it is a message that most people in charge of an office already understand. In a State of the Art Consulting and Curating Business research report, that was ordered by Nine dot Arts, professionals from various industries were asked about the importance of the work of arts, in their workplace. When the numbers came out, it showed that 62% of them thought that it was either absolutely critical or very important that they reflect the company’s brands, mission, and vision.

CEOs are people that listen to everything around them. Their awareness is what makes them stronger in their business life. There is no reason why those who have not yet invested in artworks, would not be looking deeper into the subject, now that they have read this article.
