The science of futuristic modular offices has got a new name. At Featherlite, we call it Ergoneering. It is the science we apply to the form and function while manufacturing of every piece of furniture we produce. The goal is to reduce human error, increase productivity, and enhance safety and comfort with a specific focus on the interaction between the furniture and its user. Ergonomics or human factors engineering forms the crux of Featherlite office furniture, primarily because of the impact it has, not only on an individual employee but also to a workplace as a whole. Featherlite has manufactured and supplied over 1.5 Lac workstations to furnish 1,00,00,000 square feet of office space across the country over the last 2 years. Let’s look at the benefits that our wide range of ergonomic furniture has had on its users.
1.Increased Productivity Levels: Featherlite’s ergonomic furniture has been able to provide good posture, less exertion, fewer motions and better heights and reaches which makes the workspace more efficient and user-friendly. As human beings, we all share a need to be comfortable, no matter where we are. So, designing a workspace that promotes good health can only make workers more efficient.
2.Reduced Costs: By systematically reducing ergonomic risk factors in Featherlite’s office furniture, costly musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are prevented. With approximately 30% of an employee’s compensation cost attributed to MSDs, Featherlite has offered opportunities for significant cost savings.
3.Improved Quality: Featherlite’s expertise lies in understanding employer/yee behavior and movement and intelligently applying the required ergonomic functions which form an integral part of our designing and manufacturing process. By providing one of the best ergonomic office furniture in the industry, Featherlite has catalyzed good quality work by preventing employees from frustration and fatigue. Thus, the quality of Featherlite office furniture today is helping employees across the country, maintain and improve their quality of work.
4.Improved Employee Engagement: Almost 51% of the global workforce is disengaged from work; out of which 17% are actively disengaged. If an employee does not experience fatigue and discomfort during their workday, it can decrease absenteeism, improve morale and increase employee involvement. At Featherlite, we address this problem statement and provide the best solution for it by focusing on the comfort level that every Featherlite office furniture provides in order to let employees be engaged for long hours of work.
5.Safe Work Culture: Ergonomics shows a company’s commitment to safety and health as a core value. The cumulative effect of the previous four benefits of ergonomics is a stronger safety culture for any company. Healthy employees are the most valuable assets. At Featherlite, we believe in creating and fostering the safety & health culture at your company which will lead to better human performance for your organization.
