Health at work, not only in workshops but also in offices, has become a real issue for companies. The working environment, the equipment and the tools made available to employees are important elements when it comes to working conditions. With optimal working conditions, employees become more motivated and productive. The principle of ergonomics does not only apply in production spaces. In offices, workloads are less heavy and tasks can be less repetitive, but it is also essential for employees at the office to work in a suitable and dynamic position. Often ignored to the detriment of a high-performance IT tool, there are however many simple and affordable solutions to create a favorable working environment while considering the well-being of the teams.
Ergonomics at work is now an essential concern in our way of working. The evolution of working methods and the growing number of employees who spend more and more time at their workplace bring new perspectives in the way of working, where it is necessary to adapt the work, the tools, and methods.

This will help reduce MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders), particularly back pain and shoulders. The ergonomic height-adjustable desk relieves the strain on the spine while providing suitable posture to increase employee's working skills while boosting performance.
