Comfort First – Chairs Matter!

According to Staples, “80% of office workers say their furniture causes discomfort, and half say that if they could make one change, it would be for a better chair.” Who would’ve thought that such an affordable piece of office furniture could distress such a large percentage of employees?

Don’t let this be the case in your office.

“Your office chair is the single most important piece of furniture you own,” says Alan Hedge, director of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Laboratory at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Our very own office designer at Gregory Grier, Diane White, agrees that the desk chair is one of the most important features of any workspace. “It needs to fit the individual in function and comfort,” White explains.

At Gregory Grier, we do our best to ensure a return on your investment. On average, according to The Journal of Safety Research, “improving ergonomics of chairs and other office equipment improves productivity by 17%.”

Gregory Grier is committed to ensuring that your office space meets the needs of your employees and clients, prioritizing comfort, functionality and productivity while staying within your budget.  Give us a call to find the right chair for you, your co-workers and your work environment today.
