Helping Customers Every Day

Do you remember the last time you stopped to help a customer? Although it can be difficult to find time as a business owner, doing what you can to improve your customer's experience can make a tremendous impact on your overall store. I started thinking about how impactful a few comments could be a few years ago, after I complained and the business changed their policies. I wanted to create an environment online that was all about helping my fellow customers to enjoy a better life. Check out this blog for more information that could help you. After all, you never know when you will need a few tips!

3 Tips For Choosing Ergonomic Office Chairs For Your Business

If your business's office chairs are starting to break down, you may decide it is time to purchase new ones for your employees. You may also decide that the new chairs should be ergonomically correct to keep your workers comfortable. If so, use the following three tips for choosing ergonomic office chairs for your business:

Choose Chairs with Adjustable Armrests

A part of an ergonomically correct sitting position involves having the arms bent at a comfortable angle. However, if the armrests of a chair are too high, the shoulders are lifted and can cause cramping of a person's neck and shoulders. Also, armrests that are too low can cause muscle strain as the weight of the arms pulls the shoulders down.

When selecting office chairs for your business, made sure the armrests are adjustable. Since everyone has arms that are different lengths, having the ability to position the armrests so that the elbows are bent at a 90-degree angle can help keep the strain and cramping to a minimum.

Check for Lumbar Support

When your employees sit all day at their workstations, lumbar support in a chair is important because it cradles their lower backs. If there is no support, the strain of having to hold themselves at an uncomfortable position can cause back spasms and muscle soreness.

As you look at different models, make sure the lower backs of the chairs slope at an angle toward the front and follow the natural curvature of the spine so they can keep your employees' backs in alignment. If possible, try to find chairs that have adjustable lumbar support so each worker can find the most comfortable setting for them.

Test the Height Adjustment

Another part of keeping your employees' bodies in alignment while they sit is having their legs bent squarely at the knee so that there is no pulling or strain on their hips and backs. To ensure this, make sure you test the height adjustment for any chair models at which you are looking.

While testing the height, make sure the chairs can go close to the floor, as well as above the height of your business's desks. This ensures that they can accommodate any sized employee. 

Even while shopping for office chairs using the tips above, you may still be uncertain about which ones are the right ones for your business. If so, speak with a sales representative for the store at which you are shopping for the office chairs to ask them about the ergonomic features of each model, as well as ask for their recommendations.
