Talent acquisition company Jobilla outfits Berlin offices with biophilic green walls to support employee well-being and productivity

Due to urbanization and the move to technological tools in our daily work, we’ve been largely confined to four walls without much access to nature. It causes fatigue and impacts our health negatively. According to research, the diversity of …
