Selecting the Right Chair for Your Office
All of us spend a tremendous amount of our day sitting, and having an ergonomically correct chair is paramount to good posture, your back and attitude. Some even say the chair is more important than your computer or other office equipment purchases.
Those in home offices--or offices at a business location--should know that a good chair isn't cheap. Be prepared to spend as much as $1,000 and higher depending on the chair's finish and style.
One good piece of advice is to shop for your chair with a resource that allows you to "test drive" the chair for a few days; try it out and see if you like it.
Experts suggest that a store is better than a catalog to buy a chair because you will avoid any return shipping charges should you decide to send the chair back.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
