We could all improve our posture, but did you know that there is evidence to suggest that poor posture can also negatively impact productivity in workers?
One study found that poor posture was associated with a decrease in productivity of up to 66% in office workers.1 Other studies have also found that poor posture can lead to increased fatigue and decreased concentration, which can further contribute to a decrease in productivity.
It is important to note that the connection between posture and productivity is complex, and the specific impact of poor posture on productivity may vary depending on the individual and the work environment.
If poor posture leads to a 66% decrease in productivity, as suggested by the study cited above, and the average salary for workers in a company is $50,000 per year, the financial impact of poor posture on the company's productivity could be estimated as follows:
66% productivity loss x $50,000 salary = $33,000 loss per worker per year
$33,000 loss per worker per year x 20 workers = $660,000 loss per year for the company
This is a rough estimate and doesn't consider other factors that may affect productivity or financial performance. It's always a good idea to focus on maintaining good posture as part of a healthy work routine to help support overall health and well-being.
It’s hard for workers to focus on their posture when their focus could be elsewhere while working, so it’s important to choose an office chair that is proven to help improve your posture.
