Seating at the office
Employees, spending hours of their day sitting at a desk understand how an uncomfortable chair can affect their mood and efficiency.

Neck and back problems, possibly caused by poor seating, can also prove expensive.

A good desk
Office desks should be purchased to suit the end user and configured in a way that contributes to maximum comfort and efficiency.
The majority of desks are around 74cm high. While this may suit the average user, others may be too tall or too short. When choosing a desk you should be mindful of your employee’s requirements. Make sure there is enough leg room and that when seated at the desk to use the computer, hands are comfortable. Make sure the chair can approach the desk easily so you’re not sitting awkwardly away from your keyboard.
Choosing the correct office furniture – Sit Stand Desks
Having a sit stand desk doesn’t mean that you get to stand all day but by striking the correct balance between sitting and standing there are certain health benefits. Our bodies are not engineered to be placed in a static position like a sitting position all day. Long periods of sitting have a direct effect on our wellbeing. Strain on our necks, spine, muscle degeneration, are some of the issues you may face when you sitting for too long. By using a sit stand desk in your workstation, having the ability to switch between standing and sitting postures can help reduce the physical stress which your body has to endure.
