While offices have so far contented with bulky tables and stiff chairs that make you want to run out the door when the clock strikes 6, modern offices need to adapt to the times.
What is Office Ergonomics and Why is It Important?
Ergonomics at the workplace is all about designing workstations and furniture that support the individual who uses those things.
Modern office design is so much more than just creating places to work, it’s about enabling productive, quality work by providing the best work environment for employees.
Today’s working styles have created unique health problems such as hunched postures from leaning into the work desk, shoulder and back aches from insufficient arm and lumbar support, and neck pains from incorrect desktop screen heights. These health problems affect employees’ well beings and resulting morale, productivity, and efficiency.
Thoughtful ergonomic office design can improve all of these and create a company culture that’s supportive, inviting, and engaging.
Furthermore, modern companies adopting practices like flexible seating, stand-up meetings, and bring-your-own device need to design offices that enable them. Arguably then, one of the most important features of a modern office is adjustable, ergonomic furniture.
