Why does ergonomic equipment matter?

Your employees are your most expensive and valuable assets. So look after them. An investment in ergonomic furniture and IT equipment is an investment in their wellbeing and tenures.

How much does an employee really cost?

Average UK startup salary

£50,000
(Talent.com)

Average cost of employee training

£1,530
per employee/year
(Department for Education)

Average cost of employee absences

£463.76
per employee/year
(Recruiting Times)

Average cost to replace an employee

£30,000
(Breath HR)

Therefore, any business spend on benefits could save you £10,000s in the long-run.

Poor quality equipment leads to musculoskeletal injuries

In April 2020, physiotheraphy provider Ascenti surveyed 2,000 UK home workers. They found:
72%
were working from their sofa
56%
were working from their bed
39%
were working from the floor
49%
were experiencing greater physical pain
19%
were experiencing greater back pain
18%
were experiencing greater neck pain

Musculoskeletal injuries could cost you £1000s...

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) data from 2019 shows that musculoskeletal injuries led to:
498,000
injuries at work
6.9m
sick days
£15bn
in losses to UK businesses

... As could employee unhappiness

Unhealthy employees are unhappy employees, and unhappiness costs. Typically, unhappy employees:
are 12% less productive than happy employees
spend 50% less time on tasks than happy employees
have 4x shorter tenures than happy employees

So, why invest in ergonomics?

The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries gave 4,000 employees ergonomic office furniture. They recorded:

75% reduction
in absenteeism
56% reduction
in error rate
40% increase
in time spent on task
