Compared with the stable domestic epidemic situation and the unpredictable epidemic situation in overseas countries, many companies still require employees to work from home.
Many companies such as Google and Uber have announced that they will no longer need to return to the office before mid-2021, and some companies have even announced that they will no longer continue the traditional office model.
This means that for some industries, working from home is likely to become the norm. Being a home has become a place for living, working and studying. The office tools and environment that accompany us will undoubtedly have a great impact on office efficiency-will you study and work on the dining table at home? Without a standard office configuration, how much impact will it have on your office efficiency? What health problems are implied in this?
During the epidemic, it is believed that many people have the experience of home isolation, home office work or online classes. For children, suspension of classes and non-stop schooling, and studying at home means that they need stronger self-discipline ability, free from the temptation of outside world, in order to pull back concentration. The same is true for adults, efficiency is a big issue.
American ergonomics experts Mark Benden and Dr. Martha Parker once did an experiment. They used software to track the office status of 40,000 employees, and through the analysis of 120 indicators, they were able to observe the enthusiasm of employees working in the office and home environment.
They found that as long as they regularly carry out their daily work, even if they work from home, people can achieve almost the same efficiency as the office after 45 days, and this office state will continue.
The two experts emphasized that the improvement of office efficiency has a lot to do with the improvement of office equipment. There is also a Chinese saying: "Knife sharpening and not chopping wood by mistake". A comfortable table and a comfortable chair can make people concentrate on the work in front of them and help people get into a state of mental concentration faster.
This is also one of the reasons why many office equipment emphasizes conforming to the human body curve and pays attention to ergonomics in design. If you are working at the dining table, you will have a sore neck and dry eyes soon.
Ergonomics is more and more widely used in the field of office furniture. Due to the impact of the epidemic, the enlightenment that engineers got from it is to open up the space between the office and the home. This may become their next hot topic.
"At work, you can compare yourself to a professional athlete." Dr. Benden said.
"In order to achieve the best results, you must always have the same equipment and appliances. Then the work space you need is the same in different office environments."
