Ergonomics Leader Humanscale launches campaign to help remote workers stay healthy

Offers online ergonomic consultations + ‘Work From Home’ workstation

In recent weeks the lockdown and social distancing in India has seen thousands of employees set up an office in their very own homes. In fact, according to many reports, COVID-19 pandemic could lead to Work From Home (WFH) becoming a regular thing. WFH is today an accepted norm in many sectors, especially in the IT sector, as it promotes a good work-life balance and enhances productivity.

However, there is a downside to this. With remote working on the rise, more and more employees are experiencing pain and discomfort due to poor workstation setup at their homes. Working from the bed/sofa/dinning chair at home, however appealing it could be, might do permanent harm to your posture and productivity. The first step for every home office is to set up a standard permanent workstation with a good ergonomic chair.

Humanscale, the leading designer and manufacturer of ergonomic office tools that improve the health and comfort of work life, has launched a campaign in India to offer online ergonomic consultations + WFH workstation to support workers.
