Quality Office Furniture is Worth the Investment
When it comes to buying furniture for your office, looking for quality should be the first priority. Yes, the initial investment may be high; however, in the long run it will not only save you money, but will save you in other ways as well.
Comfort & Productivity
When your employees are more comfortable, they will be more productive. This is not to say they should be lounging around, but if a chair is designed with ergonomics in mind, they will be able to stay focused on their tasks and not be distracted by unnecessary aches and pains. Chairs are crucial when it comes to comfort.
Both inexpensive and quality chairs have a sense of comfort when you first sit on them, but will they still be comfortable at the end of the day? How about after a few weeks, months, and years of use? What is the surface finish on the desk? Will the laminate come apart? Will the fabric stand up to wear? Quality furniture holds up longer – feels better, and looks better.
Protecting the Environment
Corporate Social Responsibility has become an important initiative in many companies. Supporting the well-being of people and planet is proving to be good for business.
If you are purchasing for the first time, purchasing “better than new” remanufactured furniture from a reputable supplier is an e!co-friendly option when designing an office.
Long Term Investment
Invest in quality furniture and you will save in more ways than you may think. The initial outlay may seem like a lot, but you need to consider the consequences of choosing the more inexpensive replicas.
Time – It takes time to source out new furniture, dispose of the old furniture (which also costs money), and manage the installation of the new furniture. When time is money in the business world, this is a cost that needs to be factored in.
Reputation – If CSR and Sustainability are core values in your organization, choosing to purchase office furniture that has a GREEN story, such as remanufactured furniture does, will support your public statements. It is good PR.
Branding/Image – When it comes to consistency in branding, high-end businesses catering to a high-end clientele need to consider how the quality of their furniture supports (or does not support) their image.
Employees – Showing your employees that their comfort is important goes a long way in supporting a good reputation, but it also helps in retention of employees and improved productivity.
