Did you know that you spend 9 years of your life sitting in the office? That’s 8 hours a day, 230 days a year, over 40 years equals 75,000 hours over your lifetime. The seated position is not a natural position and prolongs sitting can lead to eyesight fatigue, headaches, contraction of cervical vertebrae, back pain, compression of sitting bones, and poor blood circulation causing pain and fatigue. Life is too short to sit in a bad chair.
Purchasing decisions are made globally across organizations that affect each employee. However, each employee has a different body type and interacts with their seating differently. As work becomes more and more collaborative, we need to think about seating in all areas like meeting rooms, individual work areas, in-between spaces and how technology affects how we interact with our chairs whether we are working on a tablet, phone, laptop, computer, or some device we don’t even know about yet. We call this intelligent comfort and your seating in your office should support all of these various activities.
How We Do It
We begin by understanding the types of areas you need seating for, the budget, and what you are trying to accomplish with your new seating. Many different manufacturers offer products at different spots on the budget spectrum each with varying degrees of functionality, options, and finishes. Most of these seating options we have in our showroom and we can lend to you so multiple employees can “test drive” the seating options. All of the seating across the different applications can match in color and style to drive a consistent environment whether it’s in the lobby, the boardroom, the breakroom, or your personal cubicle. We want you to pick the right seating for the right application with an investment perspective that seating is not something you have to replace every three years.
Even the best chairs fail and break. Many manufacturers have warranty programs on their seating and it’s simply an email away for us to get you on the schedule to repair and maintain the seating. When you buy Steelcase seating we are your partner for the life of that product and we can help repair anything from the wheels, arms, back, and pneumatics.
We are going to help you understand your options across all budget targets and then help you make a selection based on your goals. We will make the process easy and pain-free whether you are looking for a stock-available-tomorrow chair or you need hundreds of chairs for an office remodel. The cost of doing it wrong is just too high, we are your partner on day one and over the lifetime of that product.
