Working from home was the new normal in 2020. This new normal gave us all the opportunity to reflect on work and how we do it. We were all forced to reimagine our workspaces. What were the essentials? What were the luxuries? And, how were productivity and comfort supported from the home office?
As we reach the midpoint of 2021, many of us are returning to the office. However, instead of returning to the old ways, we have the opportunity to reinvent the office. We can now apply the lessons learned to our company’s office. We have all learned how to create an ergonomic and productive home office. It is time to take what we have learned and apply it to our open workspaces, cubicles, and offices. Returning to work 2.0 is the new normal for many of us.
As we worked from our kid’s desks, dining room tables, and kitchen bars, we quickly learned the importance of ergonomic seating. Let’s bring this understanding back to the office. Below, you will find two fantastic ergonomic task chairs that ship out immediately.
