* A Washington State analysis of case studies related to office ergonomics showed the median productivity increase following an ergonomic intervention was 12%. Other studies suggest that employees who are provided with well-designed ergonomic furniture and are trained to use it see an average 18% increase in productivity.
Assumptions for ergonomic equipment investment: Chair = $450; adjustable mount for display(s) = $150; adjustable keyboard/mouse tray = $200. These products can be considered essential components for an ergonomic seated workstation, but more options are available and other factors may apply. Costs may vary depending on your adjustment requirements, employees’ personal physical needs, and computer equipment that is deployed.
