Is your office built around the needs of your employees, or do your employees have to fit around your office design?
Office planning is alien to most people and one of the biggest buzzwords in office design at the moment is ‘ERGONOMICS’. What does that mean?
An ergonomic workplace is one that’s designed with the needs of its employees and productivity in mind. The goal is to adapt to the needs of each individual worker, providing them with the equipment, space and furniture they need in a comfortable, safe and productive manner. A lot of people are sceptical of the idea of colour in the office and the office furniture but this is just as important as the correct chair or height adjustable desking.
Ergonomics can deliver real, measurable benefits to a business in term of employee health, wellbeing and productivity. Taking into consideration height, weight and proportions the impact of Ergonomic office furniture is designed to reduce physical stress, strains, discomfort and fatigue.
