Why Ergonomics Matters
Ergonomics is all about fitting a task to you and not the other way around. It’s a simple premise with a big impact on your body and mind. An ergonomic workspace is designed to keep you energised, minimise discomfort and avoid injuries. This ultimately supports job satisfaction, productivity and the quality of your work.
With more people working from home, musculoskeletal and mental health concerns are on the rise. In one study, 70% of employees reported musculoskeletal pain. Another study noted that 46% of employees said their mental health has declined.
Ergonomics sets the foundation for how you feel wherever you work. It can propel you to conquer a new challenge or if disregarded, potentially lead to aches and pains and hinder your overall health.
With companies shifting to hybrid work models, loyalty of the workforce and attractiveness for new employees is in the current focus of many organisations, they are going back to the drawing board to create a culture where employees feel appreciated, and wish to stay.
We know from Ergotron’s Future of Work Survey that 73% of UK workers would choose their next employer based on physical, health and wellbeing support. It’s particularly important in the more physically disconnected environments of hybrid and remote workspaces, that employees are made to feel connected to their teams, supported and valued – today and everyday.
When you hear the name Ergotron, you might think of healthcare or office, but many of our products also work well in manufacturing and industrial applications. Process efficiency, worker safety and technology at the point-of-need are all critical elements to an effective production environment.
Did you know the employees in this field are two times more likely* to suffer on-the-job accidents? Imagine how these issues could be mitigated by incorporating a mobile, powered, height-adjustable cart that brings technology where it is needed most and reduces the need to travel back and forth across a busy floor. This is just one of many examples where Ergotron can improve both process flows and employee safety.
