JAT Herman Miller Aeron and Embody Chairs: A valuable investment for your employee’s health and wellbeing

Renowned for its high-quality products and innovations that meet the changing needs and demands of the market, JAT Holdings introduces another pioneering solution that meets the demands of the new normal. The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly transformed the way we work, as most organisations switch to remote working. Whilst this is the new normal, it could and will be the future for many industries.

Office environments are designed to cater to the ergonomic needs of employees, providing support for work, through transitions from multiple jobs to physical movements to ensure a job is completed. Nevertheless, work from home involves getting tasks completed all through the use of communication technology, involving limited or no physical movement, resulting in employees being seated for extended hours.

Human bodies are made for movement. Therefore, spending too much time on devices, with a lack of physical movement makes our bodies stiff, tired and could result in long-term health implications. Research has revealed that sitting for a long period of hours impedes the flow of blood and ultimately affects the facilitation of tissue perfusion. Eight out of ten workers experience back pain at some point in their career. In the US alone, companies spend $80 billion on Musculoskeletal Disorders (MD) resulting in a loss of 264 million workdays in a period of one year due to lower back pain. These staggering statistics indicate the importance and value of ergonomic interventions in increasing the productivity and effectiveness of the workforce in dealing with the new normal.

JAT’s Herman Miller Aeron and Embody chairs are ergonomically designed based on research on the science of sitting and to meet the needs of modern work, providing maximum comfort and health-positive benefits to the user. From the size to functionalities and features of the chair to the choice of colours, all of these have been carefully designed to improve efficiency and cross-performance making it suitable for a wide array of workplace settings, from residential work stations to shared workshops. 

Furthermore, investment in Herman Miller ergonomic chairs provide organisations with long-term benefits by significantly improving the productivity and efficiency of its workforce. Research studies have proven that the use of Herman Miller chairs can significantly reduce heart rate, increase blood flow, improve air circulation, and thereby increase productivity. Herman Miller office seating solutions come with a 12-year comprehensive warranty and a return of investment of $17.50 for every $1 invested in an ergonomic intervention strategy in the home or office environment.
