  • Ergonomics 101 – Humanscale encourages body/mind balance

    Here’s a shocker: most of us sit more than we sleep. “Sitting is the new smoking” is the mantra of researches into ergonomics and our long-term health. All modern offices share many similarities. One such similarity is a sedentary culture and studies show all that sitting is taking a major toll on employee health.

    Why Invest in Ergonomics?

    ergonomics-workstation_465x420

    The implementation of a sound ergonomics program can represent a significant investment. When a company takes a proactive approach to employee safety and well-being, employees take notice of this active stance on their wellness. They report higher levels of job satisfaction and show higher commitment levels. Toward this end, an effective ergonomics program can offer a positive return on investment that is often many times the cost of executing the program.
