Two trends that keep circulating around our industry are office ergonomics and open/collaborative workspaces. Lately, many of us are becoming more and more health conscious - we credit it to the start of a new year with resolution making. Office furniture can play a key role in your health, so while you're resolving to get healthier, start resolving to get a better office chair (for one). If you're resolving to improve communication in the office, following the trend of having an open/collaborative workspace can help!

With 2014 in full swing, we are predicting what we think the top office products of the year will be. Already, we’re selling Safco’s Zenergy Ball Chairs like crazy.

Some cleaning supplies can be hazardous to humans and the earth. They can affect indoor air quality, and even pollute our communities from the packaging they leave behind. Most eco-friendly janitorial products are biodegradable, smell better than janitorial products that are not eco-friendly, and are better for users’ overall health.

Purchasing good office chairs for your employees is one of the best things you can do for their health.
