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…
Cactus in the conference room! Did you know studies show this can lead to a happier working environment?! -Lys pic.twitter.com/DcnssOzXUT

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.
