With the advances in modern ergonomics, computer accessories have been made available that will greatly increase day to day productivity. Commonly, many think that just having an ergonomic office chair is the only necessary ergo attribute necessary to work a healthy day. Computer accessories like ergonomic monitor arms, keyboard trays, and copy holders are becoming more and more common because of the invaluable ergonomic benefits offered.
Ergonomic monitor arms are typically seen in IT offices because of there ability to hold multiple computer screens. However, benefits like increased usable desk space and mobility are making monitor arms more and more popular. Having the option of your computer screens tilt angle, depth from work station, and mounting position are attractive features that will definitely have you hooked after trying them!
Keyboard trays are often over looked for there useful benefits. Nothing is worse in my opinion than have a beautiful office desk with an old keyboard laying right on the work surface. That space is valuable! Not to mention horrible for your posture. The ability to tilt your keyboard at an angle, swivel, and hide under the desk surface are just some of the qualities that make them worth there weight in gold. My personal favorite is the padded wrist wrest standard on my ESI keyboard tray. It allows my palms to rest comfortably while I type at a much faster and accurate rate throughout the day. My WPM increase from 80 to 103 with the addition of the ESI keyboard tray.
Hopefully you will consider adding some inexpensive ergonomic office accessories to your office. The cost is minimal compared to the productivity gained and comfort level achieved.

But, are there other systems that may be a better solution for your needs? Yes!
Depending on the amount of files your business has on location a mobile filing system may be the solution for. Benefits of mobile filing styles include increased work space and file security. Typically file cabinets will take up a large part of any office. For companies with thousands of files this can take up ton of workspace. Mobile filing systems allow for mechanically assisted handles to roll your files together. This is a great feature because you don't have to have all your cabinets spaced out!

It's overly common in today's homes and businesses to see a variety of metal file cabinets. From vertical file cabinets to laterals, metal file cabinets have become a staple in most offices. As common as the cabinets themselves is the overwhelming desire to provide a more attractive option. Finding wood file cabinets with beautiful finishes seems impossible to some but I assure you they are available!
I think almost everyone would like to have a nice cherry-finished file cabinet with attractive pulls and adequate space as opposed to a standard black or tan metal file cabinet. That being said, wood file cabinets really enhance the look of the office. They provide a warming feel as opposed to the look of cold dark metal. Nothing against metal file cabinets here, especially ones that come in customer paint finishes. They hold up quite well, but in my opinion they offer nothing as far as aesthetics to offices.
Finding wood file cabinets to match your office is actually pretty simple. Doing a Google search for the color and style of cabinet you are looking for will pull you up several results. However, I suggest searching for the line or series of furniture you already have. Mayline for example offers lines like Luminary, Mira, and Sorrento that ALL have matching file cabinets. The best part is, the cost is nearly the same! You may pay $20 to $30 more per cabinet but overall you have enhanced your space without breaking the bank. Instead of an eyesore in the corner you now have a matching piece of office furniture, not just a file cabinet!

In the modern world many office spaces utilizes there desks for multiple workers throughout the day. Spaces like this require employees to constantly sit in different office chairs. While we all know, all office chairs are not created equal. Just check out the price tag on a new Herman Miller Aeron chair! For many, the price tag of these chairs is astronomical and simply un-reasonable. For that reason, I have put together some simple tips for buying adjustable office chairs on a budget.
First and foremost, adjustable office chairs are extremely important because they allow workers to utilize ergonomic features that will improve there productivity and efficiency in the workplace. Not being able to adjust your chair to your body type would be like driving your car with the seat all the way up for 8 hours at a time. It's simply uncomfortable and not healthy.
To keep the cost down on your adjustable office chairs the best tip is to contact a dealer directly. It is unwise to simply go online and purchase 20 to 30 office chairs without consulting the dealer first. Many office chair providers like ourselves offer bulk discounts, free shipping promotions, and clearance office chairs to save our clients money. Commonly dealers will generate coupons for your specific order to save you money. It is important to not overlook these opportunities for saving money.
To be honest, adjustable office chairs are a necessity in my opinion. However, if your employees are not committed to using the chair and understanding the functionality, there is simply no point in spending the money. That being said, it is ergonomically responsible to have a 10 minute power meeting to go over the chair features. Explaining how your chairs operate and how to get the most out of it is just as important as saving money. Too commonly, I see expensive chairs get purchased, and used at about a third of there potential. Many companies like us, will be more than happy to have a video conference to cover these features for free! Education is a huge part of the seating business and is rewarding as well.
Overall, adjustable office chairs will allow your employees the freedom and functionality to preform there everyday tasks with proficiency. Helping your company to choose chair functions, styles, and features wisely, while looking for ways to save money on the seating will make you look like a rock star in the workplace. Consider important features that relate to your work style, contact a reputable office chair dealer, and go from there. It's as simple as that! Best of luck to you all. Please feel free to contact us directly with any ergonomic office furniture and seating questions.
