When asked on why the image, he claims it has a calming effect on all who comes into his office especially on Board meeting days lol

Baizhang's saying is very good for workplaces:
(one day without work, one day without eating).

For people with weak minds like myself, it is easier to have a Buddha image in my mind if I have an actual physical representation sitting somewhere that I see even when I wasn't previously thinking about it.

Not sure if this topic has been covered, as the search engine won't let me search for the word "work" because it is too common. Nor am I sure if this is the appropriate forum...
What are your thoughts on displaying Buddhist images in the workplace? By that, I mean having pictures, statues, flags, whatever, in your cubicle, office, etc.
Well, my workplace is my home. Does that count?
