Better Seating Leads to Higher Profits

How ergonimically sound are your office chairs? Do you find people you work with complaining of back problems because they sit too long in poorly designed seating?

You could be losing a lot in terms of time and money if you don't pay attention to this important health topic. It is estimated that repetitive-motion injuries cost U.S. businesses $100 million annually in lost productivity, and untold more in workers compensation costs.

On today's market, there are now many sources for chairs that make sense for you and your staff, but be prepared to pay more for the best seating. At one time, the $200 office chair was thought to be expensive. Today, one of the most popular models, the Aeron, sells for more than $1,100.

Experts say that a chair is undoubtedly the most important part of anyone's desk or workstation. This investment will make an employee feel much better, mentally and physically.
