Effects of Poor Posture

We know that cheap office chairs don’t support the body in good posture. So, we can infer that sitting in a cheap office chair leads to poor posture.

What does the research say about the effects of poor posture?

There is evidence to suggest that poor posture can reduce productivity and increase missed workdays.

A study published in the journal Occupational Medicine found that poor posture was significantly associated with an increased risk of missed workdays due to musculoskeletal disorders. The study included data from over 32,000 employees and found that individuals with poor posture were more likely to miss work due to musculoskeletal disorders compared to those with good posture.1

Another study published in the journal of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health found that poor posture was significantly associated with an increased risk of absenteeism due to musculoskeletal disorders. The study included data from over 4,000 employees and found that individuals with poor posture were more likely to miss work due to musculoskeletal disorders compared to those with good posture.2

In addition to the risk of missed work days, poor posture can also have a negative impact on productivity. Poor posture can lead to discomfort, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating, which can make it difficult for individuals to complete tasks efficiently. A study published in the journal Applied Ergonomics found that poor posture was significantly associated with a decrease in task performance and an increase in errors.3

So are you really saving money when you purchase your employees cheap office chairs?
