Tips for Practical Ergonomics in Your Workplace Infographic

Most of us who work in offices (especially swanky ones) have probably heard of ‘ergonomics’. Most of us have no idea what it means unless we went to business school and took some kind of human resource management class that discussed the importance of providing employees with comfort in the workplace.
