The positive effects of office plants reported in a recent study by the University of Tecnology Sydney (UTS) found plants promoted wellbeing, and therefore, potential performance. “Staff who had plants placed in their offices showed reductions in stress levels and negative feelings of a magnitude of 30 to 60%, while those with no plants recorded increases in stress and negativity of 20 to 40% …” Technical Nursery Paper ‘The positive effects of office plants’ July 2010 Issue 6, NGIA Australia.
TPR GROUP recognises its duty of care to its clients, stakeholders, employees, contractors and the local community to sustain and protect the environment in the course of business and to ensure that these environmental obligations are given equal importance to those relating to commercial performance and social responsibility. To achieve this, TPR GROUP has implemented a detailed management system for the environmental risk management.
TPR GROUP is not only committed to creating healthy, happy and productive work environments for people but is also dedicated to re-establishing bushland environments for native animals.
In January 2003, after witnessing the negative impact intensive farming practices had on natural habitats, TPR GROUP decided to make a difference by establishing “Woodlawn Koala Corridor” – a safe environment for local Koala communities and wildlife in the Gunnedah region.
