Look around your office – how many of your employees are sat in their chairs with a good posture, comfortably working? Compare that to how many are fidgeting, trying to find that optimal position, stretching their backs out or sitting in a position which just cannot be healthy. If this outweighs the people working comfortably, the chairs you have provided could be causing your business to lose productivity and thus money.
The Health and Safety Executive estimates that 4.5 million sick days are taken on average each year due to work related back problems and poor posture is considered a major cause of this. Poorly designed office chairs do not provide the right level of support for your employees making it difficult for them to sit the way they should in the office, which places stress upon their lumbar region and wrists contributing to both back problems and repetitive-strain injuries.
