Promoting a healthy workplace is not just a trend, it is a necessity. When a workplace encourages healthy behaviors and habits, employees are happier and more productive.
Hours of sitting can take a toll on your body, especially your spine, neck and hips. Hours of repetitive tasks with a traditional mouse and keyboard can also lead to painful issues, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
One of the best ways to help employees lead healthier lives in the office is through ergonomic furniture. With ergonomics, you can help employees find good posture and alignment to prevent back pain and neck pain. Further, good wrist alignment can help prevent wrist pain and the development of carpal tunnel.
We’ve rounded up a couple of our favorite ergonomic office furniture for you to draw inspiration from:
