In a previous blog, we discussed 4 Tips to Set Up an Effective Hybrid Office, but what else can employers do to reduce stress for returning employees? One major cause of stress on employees that we don’t often consider is technology. According to Medical News Today technology “may lead to psychological and physical issues, such as eyestrain and difficulty focusing on important tasks.” Physical issues affected by technology can include, eyestrain, bad posture, sleep issues, and more. When designing your office, it is important to keep your employees’ health, concerning technology, in mind. Below we will outline a few ways to set up your office for technology-related health success.
It may also help to offer a variety of different chairs or workstation options. Some people prefer sitting on a yoga ball, using a standing desk, or need to keep their feet elevated to alleviate knee pain. If you offer more than one choice employees can choose what fits their needs best. The chair or desk height that suits a 6-foot tall athletic person may not comfortably accommodate a petite individual. Being comfortable improves focus and makes the workday more pleasant for everyone.
These aren’t the only ways to help encourage healthy use of technology in your office, but we hope that they can help. Once you have implemented one or all of these tips, get ready to take advantage of a healthier office and happier employees.
DOMA strives to keep all our employees happy and healthy at work. We have implemented several strategies in our offices to make this happen. On entry, all employees are scanned with an infrared scanner to check their temperature and make sure they don’t have a fever. Hand sanitizing stations are provided throughout the office to help minimize the spread of bacteria. We want to make sure our employees are ready to take on the day so we provide a light breakfast of cereal, granola, and fruit for employees that didn’t have time to eat at home. To keep our employees comfortable at their workstations we provide ergonomic chairs, indirect lighting, and large monitors. These are just a few of the steps DOMA takes to improve the health and wellness of all the employees in our office.
