Think Ergonomics This Employee Appreciation Day

Staff 03-03-23

Employee Appreciation Day is observed on the first Friday in March. It’s an opportunity for employers to acknowledge the untiring contribution of their employees. While pondering how to make their employees feel special and appreciated, many employers think of gifts, recognition, financial compensation, or even time off. While those are all great, this year, improve your employee's productivity and at-work overall health & wellness by upgrading to high-quality, ergonomic furniture. Facilities and office managers have learned over the years that one of the best ways to show their employees care and appreciation is by being considerate of their work environment. 

FACT: A recent study revealed that 1 in 3 employees are highly dissatisfied with their office layout, making them disengaged from work. 

Workplace ergonomics is a people-centric concept. The practice of ergonomics can be defined as “fitting a workplace to an employee’s needs” or making people more comfortable at work.” Experienced facility and office managers have found that paying heed to ergonomic design leads to several positive outcomes for employees and employers alike. Good ergonomic practices help reduce the stress of repetitive movements throughout the workday, leading to fewer workplace injuries and increased productivity.  After all, most employees spend almost a third of their lives at work!

Implementing ergonomic solutions in the workplace can lead to:

  • 25% increase in productivity
  • 75% reduction in lost workdays for employees
  • 68% reduction in workers’ compensation costs

This Employee Appreciation Day, instead of the standard gifts, consider what your employees go through daily. Are they dealing with low-quality office furniture that leads to workplace injuries, general unhappiness and lost productivity?  If the answer is “YES,” you might need to retrofit your office to make it more ergonomic. Carolina Office Solutions offers high quality new and used ergonomic office furniture at prices you won't believe. Contact us and give your employees a gift they will truly appreciate.
