When the news of the pandemic broke in 2019, you probably thought it was one of the viruses that would spread like wildfire in a couple of months and disappear with time. But, here we are, years after the pandemic and you still have to work from home. Neither is it looking like resuming work would happen any time soon, hence you have to come to terms with the new normal of working from home.
Interestingly, many organizations are piloting the work-from-home reality, with companies pivoting to a remote-first culture. This means many would have to accept this new norm and ensure that every modality is needed to effectively work from home, especially for work-from-homers who have to probably spend the next 350 days working from home.
While accessories and tools like computers, modems, wireless routers, a printer may seem like expedient tools in ensuring efficiency for the work-from-home worker, such employees also have to consider how they can comfortably sit while attempting to execute the many tasks assigned to them, work-from-home workers. Since such employees might be having longer sedentary activity, it is exigent that adequate considerations are also given the sitting posture of the employee, hence the need to consider the type of chairs to use while working from home.
In finding a comfortable chair, one needs to leave no stone unturned as there is a likelihood that you would be spending around eight hours on it on a daily basis. If your home is going to be your primary work-space for an undecided and indefinite time, then you have no choice but to make your work-station comfortable enough for you to perform optimally as you would have should be working from the conventional office.
To guide in your choice, here are some comfortable chairs to foster alertness, effectiveness and to avoid poor posture whilst working from home:
