The start of the fourth quarter also means the unofficial start of the “busy season” for tax and accounting professionals. Gathering documents, running reports on company financials, assessing the potential tax implications going into the next year and setting budgets all add lots of desk and screen time for those in the industry.

Keeping the office running smoothly during this time starts with making sure everyone is comfortable at their work stations. Durable, ergonomically well fit furniture is important.

Some factors to consider in how well furniture “fits” someone include:
* Can the arm rests be adjusted so forearms are resting without stress when typing?
* Do feet sit flat on the floor?
* When looking at a computer monitor, are eyes level or is undue stress being placed the eyes or neck?
* Do work stations and raise and lower to allow for stand-up or sit-down positions?

Other considerations in comfort include placement of desk items and keeping things close to avoid undue strain.
