We Can’t Help But Wonder if This EY Conference Room Cactus Is Trying to Say Something

It would be bad enough to spend your life as a cactus, but a conference room cactus? I'd rather be reincarnated as the E. coli on your lunchmeat.

It seems this cactus, shared by @EYStaff earlier today, has something on its mind. I can't quite put my finger on it…

The most recent study was done by Exeter University and published just last month:

Offices devoid of pictures, souvenirs or any other distractions are "the most toxic space" you can put a human into, say psychologists in a paper published on Monday, which says workers perform better when household plants are added to workplaces.

Researchers "concluded that employees were 15% more productive when "lean" workplaces are filled with just a few houseplants, as employees who actively engage with their surroundings are better workers."

Is this cactus building a better working world? We're pretty sure it has better places to be.
