Abstract: Despite the growth of studies on the link between indoor work environment quality and employee productivity, the impacts of connectedness to nature within offices on employee well-being, satisfaction, and productivity remain less studied. The objective of the study is to conduct a scoping review of available research published between 2015 and 2020 on the impacts of biophilia and connectedness to nature on employee productivity and well-being as well as corporate strategies. The analysis of the studies shows that more and more companies are highlighting the integration of natural elements in the workspace as well as their benefits in terms of psychological connection and employee behaviors. In addition, there are differences in the spatial quality of the workspace, particularly between traditional green offices and coworking offices. This study highlights the need for companies to develop natural outdoor workspaces in addition to traditional green offices. This work also highlights the practical implications of the impacts of employee connection to nature for occupants, green office designers, and managers alike. The discussion also highlights the impact of the pandemic crisis on workspace design, ecology, and corporate budgets.
