The purpose of this study was to examine if natural elements would act as identity markers and affect workplace attitudes. Specifically, the study hypothesized that a workplace environment that possessed natural elements such as natural lighting, potted plants and pictures of nature, would cause job applicants to report higher levels of organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intentions after a workplace tour of the organization. It was also hypothesized that enjoyment of nature would moderate the effect of the natural elements on these workplace attitudes. When tested with a 2x2 MANOVA, one hypothesis was supported and showed natural elements in the workplace can affect a job applicant’s organizational attraction. Implications, limitations and future research are discussed.
