A 2012 study conducted amongst 75 businesses found that when an organisation embarked on a “one size fits all approach” to their office seating needs up to 32% of the workers found the chair seat sizes to be to small or to large both in seat length and width. This lead over the months following the installation of the chairs to increasing regularity of backpain, sciatica, neck pain and absenteeism.
In comparison when the Sitfit range was installed taking into account the varying seat sizes and differing employees needs - the proportion of staff who found the seat sizes imperfect reduced to less than 1% and workplace wellness improved markedly.
