Yes most definitely! The configuration and design of an office space cause major impacts on the efficiceny of employees in the workplace. We hear it all the time from our clients feedback after furnishing their office. Our reconfiguration and essentially re-design of their offices have encouraged employees to see less clutter and more organisation which maximises their overall efficiency due to our ergonomic products.
Ergonomics is about designing for people. Ergonomics is the process of designing or arranging workplaces, products and systems so that they fit the people who use them. Most people have heard of ergonomics and think it is something to do with seating or with the design of car controls and instruments – and it is… but it is so much more. Ergonomics applies to the design of anything that involves people – workspaces, sports and leisure, health and safety. At Werken, we aim to improve workspaces and environments to minimise risk of injury or harm. So as technologies change, so too does the need to ensure that the tools we access for work, rest and play are designed for your body’s requirements.
Think about the angle of your computer monitor, or the height of your desk. Think about whether your eyes are strained by the end of the day or if your wrists hurt from typing. A sound understanding of ergonomics can prevent most workplace injuries by adjusting tools to the user, putting an emphasis on proper posture to reduce the impact of repetitive movements. The use of computers and rapidly changing technology in the modern workplace has greatly increased the need for ergonomics. Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting all need to be assessed when creating a workspace, whether it is at the office or at home.
Ergonomics also takes into account the need for movement throughout the day. Office furniture has traditionally encouraged stiff, fixed postures and little movement. However, a balance between sitting and standing, which can be aided with a height-adjustable desk, is a proven way to combat the effects of sedentary workplace behavior.
Well, there are many solutions to maximisng your office such as: Make use of your common areas. Possibly think of creating a breakout area in your offic where employees can relax and ease their mind of stress so they are comfrtable and working at optimal effiiceny when they return to their desk. Go paperless! Werekn recommends all clients to maximis their office psacesby relying less on paper. Its a new age and evolution to fully digital workplaces. At Werken we recommend to have stand-up meetings, outdoor meetings to decrease the amount of space being used in boardrooms. However, we do offer a range of boardroom set-ups that will definitely help increase efficiency and make the most of the room. One of the most common answers to this question ofcourse is to get rid of clutter. By doing this you not only maximise your space, you create a healthy and functional working environment for all employees and thus maximisng the efficiency in your offices. Use wall-to-wall flooring, essentially the same flooring design and material used through the entire space. This technique, will not create space, though it is guranteed to definitely open up the room and increase visibility in the office. Let the light shine in! Open up your curtains and let the sun do its thing! By opening any blinds or curtains in your office, the natural sunlight seeps through the windows and brings your office to life, with ease and offers the illusion of more space in your offices. For any other techniques or suggestions give us a call at: 02 8324 1313 and let us put your mind at ease.
PRODUCT INFORMATION ANSWERS

Good question! Studies say that beginners should begin by standing while working for 2 hours a day, until they are ready to work for 4 hours a day on their feet. This study undertook the efficiency among workers who stood and showed that by standing and working it not only increases efficiency, it also has major health benefits. Researchers analyzed more than 46 studies, spanning 1,184 people. The average person was 33 years old. In addition, 60 percent of the participants were male and they had an average weight of 143 pounds. Taking into account the average weight and age, on average a person from the study lost 0.15 calories more than the average person did while sitting. Which amounted to bruning 54 MORE calories for 6 hours each day. Muscle activity increased, and lowered the associated risk of a heart attack or strokes dramatically. So our advice at Werken is to keep using it slowly, until it becomes a hbit and then increase the duration for how long you stand during the day.

Sadly we get this question asked plenty of times, as people are always sitting and working in strenuous positions that casues a lot of harm to the body. This is due to many desks arriving to suit the height of a 6ft adult, even though all around the world, the average height of all males is 5ft5in and the average height a femal is 5ft2in. The correct height of an office desk is completely relative to the persons height.
