Comfortable Employees Are More Productive and a company’s most Valuable Asset
Comfortable ergonomic seating enhances Employee Productivity allowing workers to relieve stress points and make chair adjustments that suit their individual needs. Employees often break for coffee, water, rest room, etc. uncomfortable in older desk chairs they get up automatically as if in a rush for something. Newer desk chairs designed with ergonomic features include:
Chair height adjustment
Seat Back height adjustment
Lumbar support and/or air lumbar control
Seat Back reclines without seat moving in fixed position or free float option
Adjustable height and width and/or pivoting arms
Other specialized features ie: sliding seat pan, articulated waterfall edge
Comfortable employees will remain focused on business activities for longer concentrated periods. A well designed chair allows the employee to adjust the chair to fit their body size and type. Feet flat on floor (in flats or heels), no pressure under the knees and a comfortable supportive back rest that moves with the individual allows the employee to shift body position without getting up from their chair.
A modern HR Employee Empowerment Technique is to provide employees with a well-designed Ergonomic Desk Chair that alleviates back stress, knee and ankle joint pain and carpal tunnel syndrome and will assist the employee’s task focusing abilities. New chairs make the employee feel special and well treated, the employer reaps the Productivity Benefits with a payback in very short time.
It takes a Forward Thinking Leader to make the decision to replace all the Employee Desk Chairs at one time given the associated costs however the payback is quick and substantial when compared to worker output.
Instead of replacing all the chairs at one time you could phase out several older models and reward your best employees with new chairs. In time you can continue to phase out more of the older chairs especially if you are growing and need new furnishings.
Reward loyal employees in inventive new ways showing your company appreciation. We have installed thousands of new desk chairs for small businesses, Associations and Fortune 500 companies for over 30 years.
In addition to the exceptional comfort of these desk chairs all of the upholstery zips off for easy field replacement should the upholstery become damaged beyond repair. Side chair models have a slight spring in the seat making them more comfortable than traditional chair options. A top executive in Alexandria, VA where we ordered 86 chairs for the office remodeling project wanted to have a different selection feeling that every chair from the same manufacturer was restrictive. We brought in several other manufacturers and after selecting one for her office she admitted after 3 months time that she should have ordered the recommended seating – she could feel the difference in the seat comfort.
