How Right Office Chairs Can Increase Employee Productivity

With findings from research upon research piling up, most employers are now paying attention to how the design and environment of the office can influence their workers and actually make them more productive. One such aspect highlighted is that the employees’ concentration is bound to be disrupted given they are forced to sit all day long on uncomfortable chairs. Understandably, this type of furniture proves to have an adverse effect on health too.

If, like all good employees, you are looking for ways to increase retention and productivity, the following reasons should help you consider improving the furniture with respect to both their cohesiveness to the office design on the whole as well as in terms of their quality as individual items.


Are your employees still making use of old and worn-out furniture? That wouldn’t help boost their morale much if they are being fed about the non-serious attitude of their employer towards their business. Switch to something that is in line with your professional commitment and values. Refrain from having your new furniture as too bold, bright, or loud because that can be counterproductive as well.

Online Security – Covering All the Bases for Small Businesses

As a small business, you probably have so much on your mind that you cannot even think about online safety right now, and for good reason. The odds of success are firmly against you, so you need every ounce of energy to grow and make a profit.

However, what you might not realise is that online safety attributes to that success. With the right safety strategy, you can incorporate a solid and safe foundation for your business to expand. Without it, you could end up on the scrapheap with the rest of the failed small businesses. Here’s how to cover your business with regards to online safety.

Who and What?

Make sure you know who and what makes you vulnerable from a business standpoint. A little tip – your employees are the who. Employees are very blasé about safety and often leave you open to attack. For example, they might create an email account on the server. No big deal, right? It’s no big deal as long as said email account is secure. Hackers can attack the weak points – the what – and gain access to your whole server.
