Contrary to popular belief workplace wellness is an important thing for tech professionals to consider. Repetitive motion syndrome, back ache, and eye strain are just some of the ways bad ergonomics can affect you or your team. And if your techies are in pain, they aren’t going to be working at peak performance. Given how sedentary a techie’s job is, taking a break every hour or so – if only to stretch and walk around the office – can help the body shake off the strain of being in the same position for so long.
