Ergonomics

Ergonomics is not a new thing. For years analysts have pointed out the benefits of having proper chairs, desks, and supplies in the office to eliminate back, shoulder, and neck injuries. They have noted the benefits of lowering workers’ compensation injuries and absences. They have stressed the benefits of increasing productivity.

But it is only recently that they have been able to prove that the investment in ergonomic furniture pays off by generating more money for the company. The right office furniture gives employees the sense that their company cares about them. In turn, they are happier and devote more effort to completing their assigned tasks. And, when potential customers come to visit the office and see happy, efficient employees, they are more inclined to do business with them.

So, what are the newest trends in ergonomic furniture?

Chairs should:

  • Be form fitting
  • Provide upper back and neck support
  • Be cushioned and fully adjustable

Desks should:

  • Be easy to navigate
  • Be organized
  • Have plenty of drawers

Office space should:

  • Be open for easy communication and collaboration
  • Allows for privacy
