New homeworking survey indicates 7% of people work from garden offices

A survey by workplace health, wellbeing and ergonomics company Posturite indicates that only 48% of people who work from home have a designated room for doing so. Its figures show that 7% of people work from a garden office, with a dedicated study/home office in the house the most popular at 41%, followed by a spare bedroom at 21%, then pretty much every other home in the house. The problem with working at a kitchen table or in the living room is that you almost certainly are damaging your body in the process as a result of poor posture.

Katharine Metters, Lead Consultant in Ergonomics at Posturite, said: “Working from home should be as well set up and comfortable as working in an office and standard home furniture, such as a sofa or dining chair, is not designed to support the body in a suitable position for inputting into a computer. Setting your home office up in an ergonomic way is vital to your effectiveness and to limit the risk of aches, pains and injuries.”
