Trying to save money on office furniture, whether it be at your workplace or for your own home-office is never a good idea. Chances are that the “cheap” chair you get at your local discounter may ultimately cost you, and I mean that not only financially.
Many of those health issues such as back pain, joint pains or chronic headaches might even be irreversible. Think about the damage done to your health if you work many hours per day while needing to strain your body!
But the benefits of ergonomic office furniture go beyond avoiding physical health issues. Obviously, less pain and less strain due to ergonomic furniture can also lead to better mental health.
Ergonomic furniture makes it possible to work hours where you would otherwise experience back pain, tiredness or migraines. At the end of the day you will simply feel better rather than being exhausted.
With less strain at work comes also more motivation and higher productivity. Companies know for the longest that investing in ergonomic chairs and other ergonomic office furniture will usually be more than worth it. The result can be less sick days, more productivity & efficiency and simply spoken, overall happier employees.
