Perhaps it’s due to the ubiquity of office furniture in the corporate environment, but most people don’t give the equipment they use on a daily basis too much thought—unless, of course, something breaks. We get so used to the constancy of our furniture, that a sudden change—even if it’s something as simple as someone getting a new chair—can instantly capture our attention.
There are great reasons for regularly updating office furniture, however, which include:
- Maintaining a modern or contemporary image. This allows your offices to build renown for being in touch with the latest trends. If that’s the perception you’re using to market your company with, regular office furniture updates are an absolute must.
- Investing in higher productivity. Each new generation of office furniture is, more often than not, slightly better than the generation before it in terms of being ergonomically friendly. This leads to better posture, which leads to a more physically relaxed workforce, which eventually leads to gains in productivity.
- Staying protected under a warranty. Office furniture is often meant to last a lifetime, but that doesn’t always pan out in reality. New office furniture usually comes with some sort of warranty, however, so regular updates to the furniture in your office can help you protect yourself under a warranty for repair or replacement parts, in case something does go wrong later.
