Boost your employee engagment with art therapy
There is an increasing amount of scientific evidence that proves art enhances brain function. It has an impact on brain wave patterns and emotions, the nervous system and it can actually raise serotonin levels (the key hormone that stabilises our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness). It also reduces cortisol levels as well (the stress hormone).
What is art therapy?
Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Why art therapy at work?
We bring art therapy to work because engaging with creative activities has the potential to contribute towards reducing stress, develop problem-solving, develop imagination, improve concentration, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
Art therapy in your workplace can be incredibly beneficial for your company as it will help employees to process emotions, bond with the team, improve the quality of relationships, create a positive environment and definitely improves employee engagement.
This workshop will focus on solving employee disengagement because we believe people deserve to be happy at work and for this our goal is to improve employees’ wellbeing and happiness and work environment.
A study shows that highly engaged employees lead to 7% higher productivity, 40% fewer quality incidents and 21% higher profitability, 41% lower absenteeism, 24% lower staff turnover.
