Getting Comfortable At Work
Think about a time where you were uncomfortable. It is probably safe to say you didn’t stay there for long, nor did you get anything done while you were in that position. In order to work efficiently without pain, you must build yourself a “comfort zone” at work.
The average desk worker spends approximately 1/4 of their life at work. To ensure over time there are no chronic aches and pains that develop, proper workplace ergonomics are key.
Workplace ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace, keeping in mind the capabilities and limitations of the worker. (The Value of Ergonomics — How Ergonomics Improves Productivity )
When employees are given proper ergonomic workspace, they are more productive and engaged. That being said, ergonomics, in this scenario are not limited to standing desks or comfortable chairs. Ergonomics in the workplace can be anything from lighting, smells, airflow, desk height, distance from computer to the employees face etc.
Ergonomics can have a dramatic and far reaching impact on your organization, including improving productivity. In today’s competitive business environment, it’s impossible to ignore ergonomics as a valuable and necessary process to making the best product in the most efficient way.
