I’ve been working in the office of a physical therapy clinic for over five years now and I’ve been noticing that our equipment is in a very poor state of repair. The desks are worn out and some of the chairs are starting to fall apart. Just yesterday, I noticed that a screw was poking through my chair just enough that it was ripping a hole in my slacks, but not enough for me to feel it. It’s obviously time to upgrade our equipment and get new supplies, so I’ve been talking to the office manager about getting some more comfortable office furniture. Because we work in a physical therapy office, the boss knows just how important it is for the furniture to be ergonomically sound. Without chairs and desks that meet this criterion, there is a risk that the workers could aggravate their joints and tendons. I’m certain that the therapists would rather us not become one of their patients, so it should be easy to make the case for new office equipment.
Since I was the one to make this recommendation, my boss put me in charge of finding an affordable way to solve this issue. I’ve been looking at commercial design companies that excel at supplying offices with furniture and equipment that can help workers have a more comfortable work experience. I’ve found one particular company, known as MacBride Office Furniture, which has a supply of new and used office equipment that meets the standards of design that I am looking for. The chairs and desks are not only attractive looking, but they are designed in such a way that we can avoid the kind of slight aggravations that build up over time and lead to injury. My boss went ahead and green lighted my desire to buy new chairs and desks, but she wanted me to save money on cubicle walls. It’s a good thing there was a wide variety of lightly used cubicles that we could choose from. With such a variety available, I was able to satisfy the needs of my workers for comfortable and attractive furniture, as well as satisfy my boss’s desire to save money.
We recently received our shipment of new desks and chairs, and used office partitions. Our interns got to work unboxing the supplies and setting them up, and I have to say the office looks quite a bit better than it used to. Everything looks more modern and the receptionists and billing agents have been thanking me for getting them more comfortable chairs. Productivity is at the highest it has ever been, and I have been handsomely rewarded for my efforts with a nice raise and promotion. It feels good to work for employers that value the comfort and safety of their workers, and I’m also glad that they value the work and effort I put into improving the office space. I have MacBride Office Furniture to thank for helping me make the best informed decisions on office furniture.
