I found dozens of articles about workers suffering from similar issues, and a lot of data supporting the importance of customizing workstations to meet your specific dimensions. Employees who practiced good posture and who worked at office setups that were tailored to their bodies, were far less likely to develop soft tissue injuries and musculoskeletal disorders like lower back pain, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, neck pain, and headaches.
In addition, statistics showed that employees with proper ergonomic office setups usually worked more efficiently. It all made sense—a comfortable employee is more likely to be productive than one who is in pain all the time.
Not long after, I purchased ergonomic workstations for myself and every member of my team. My neck pain and headaches went away, and my staff’s efficiency increased overnight. They started taking less days off, and I rarely heard them complain about overuse aches and pains.
