Hey there I am hoping for some tips on convincing corporate to get better chairs for everyone at work.
To start I work in a Chicago skyscraper desk job which very much aggravates my back. I have chronic back pain and am trying to follow tips I've found: get up and move, focus on good posture and reading up on this article
I've disovered that the chairs at the office have several issues. Now I am a short woman, and the chairs are too low for me (so other people at the office must have it worse). If I try to sit properly I end up leaning all the way back and slumping my neck to see the computer, better for my back I suppose but my neck and shoulders are now killing me. I sent a note with a link to the article making a request to bring in some better chairs. I even when as far as finding a company that sells ergonomic chairs specifically in larger amounts to offices. This was about five months ago, and the only response I've gotten was a thanks for the input. I've rallied several other coworkers who have similar discomforts and asked that they put in requests also.
Anyone good with office politics? What can I do to help move this along? I don't even know if this is being considered but the chairs we have are quite old. My chair adjusts but is too low as high as it can go.
Scoliosis is the least of my problems, but still need some help every once in a while
