If you are the boss or a single person business you may be wondering just why you want to increase your productivity, after all you are working as hard as you can. Well, in a one-person office, the answer is because you are the workforce. The longer you can work and the more productive you are, the more you accomplish. In larger offices, ergonomics in office furniture selection are just as important to increase the workforce’s productivity and reduce risk of injury.
Ergonomic office chairs are not just selected for looks though, admittedly they should be nice looking. Instead, they are to reduce risk of injury and increase comfort and should be chosen on that basis.

Your current office chair may not be that bad.
