Buyer's Guide to Office Furniture

Choosing furniture for an office is about more than just décor. As a business owner, it is important to find furniture that gives off that professional feel for outsiders coming into the office, as well as provide comfort for those “insiders” who use this furniture day in and day out. Initially it seems that comfort and fashion come at a price, but often times purchasing cheaper furniture is actually more costly in the long run because of the eventual re-buying of the furniture, or paying for a worker’s injury. This decision thus becomes very costly; placing furniture considerations at the top of the list of important factors to running a successful business.

 
As any business owner knows, a business cannot function without the hard work of dedicated employees. The right type of office furniture can help an employee’s attitude; therefore helping their overall productivity. According to Thomas Wright, Leadership Chair in Business Administration and longtime professor, “in a sample of management personnel with average salaries in the $65,000 range, being psychologically distressed could cost the organization roughly $75 a week per person in lost productivity.”
 
If your office looks cramped or tight, chances are your employees will feel the same. Think spacious and let your employees do the rest.
