The average working adult spends an incredible amount of time sitting in a chair – at 40 hours per week that averages to more than 1,900 hours over a single year! Whether you log long hours at a corporate office day after day or spend your day running a business from your home office, it’s important for your furniture and accommodations to be comfortable and to support your work activities. A good office chair is worth the investment, because you will probably be spending a lot of time in this chair, and you want to make sure that it will be easy on your back and won’t make a negative impact on your health or your posture. You will know that you’ve picked the right chair when your job starts to feel easier, and you’re not straining your neck, your back or any other part of your body.
Office chairs are part of the overall décor and aesthetic of the work environment, which means that many people mostly worry about the chair looking good versus thinking about the health influences the chair will have on whoever sits in it. While the design is very important, the ergonomics of the chair should be prioritized above everything else. Studies have shown that employees who are comfortable are more productive and contribute to a more positive work environment than those who are uncomfortable. Additionally, having comfortable office chairs can also decrease the number of breaks an employee will need to take to stretch and feel better.
