The movement any employee thinks of going to job gets irritated sometimes. The reason may be a busy schedule, heavy workload or lousy office decor. An office decor plays a vital role in motivating the staff to work efficiently. I don’t say the office decor should be very luxurious. Instead, it should be presentable and maintained neatly so that a pleasant work atmosphere is created. A person spending maximum hours of a day in the office expects his workplace to look good and the management provides all the facilities. Only if the workplace is good, the employee can produce work accurately.
An office decor includes office furniture, interior decoration, and lighting of the office. Office furniture consists of desks, chairs, etc. A person working for long hours may land up in having severe back pain or spinal disorders. To avoid such a situation, the management should encourage the employee to do some simple exercises in the office area only. In addition to it, the administration must see that the staff or employee is provided with good desks and chairs.
Ergonomic furniture designs
Ergonomics plays a vital role here. Ergonomics is a science concerned with designing and arranging things keeping in view the people using it. An ergonomic chair is designed in such a way that the employee is sitting on for long hours and yet work efficiently. He may have some back pain, but when compared to traditionally used chairs, ergonomic chairs reduce the pain. It supports the lower backs, and a good sitting posture can be maintained which is very important in the long run. I don’t say that just by sitting on ergonomics chair, the pain will reduce. The employee has to do simple exercises to keep himself fit and fine.
Here are some tips which may be helpful to you when you are choosing chairs for office:
- Lower and back support: As the employee has to sit for long hours, the chair provided to him/her should be in a way that it provides the lower and back support.
- The seat of the chair: The seat of the chair should be in such a way that an employee is comfortable when he/she is seated in the chair.
- Adjustable chairs: Office furniture is considered as an asset as per the books. So it is a onetime purchase, and it usually is replaced only when chairs are entirely damaged. So when a chair is purchased, the employee height should be kept in mind. An employee may be short or long. In that case, choosing chairs which can be adjusted as per requirement is the best option. The chair should be in such a way that it can be tilted front and backward
So when you are planning to change the office decor, ensure that the desks and chairs purchased are worthy as the employee’s health is of utmost importance. The employee’s ill health may decrease the productivity of work which may affect the progress of the company gradually.
