How This Idea Started
Aura Home Office was an idea that branched from the COVID-19 outbreak that has rocked the world. Aura has been a design-build-furnish company in the Metro Vancouver area for many decades, and when this unprecedented turn of events changed the way the world works, Aura decided to take its service from the corporate office to the home. Instead of furnishing office spaces with high end ergonomic furniture, Aura wants to bring that to your home, providing you with all of the necessities to work comfortably and effectively.
This shift to remote working, particularly working from home, has many organizations questioning their remote work policy, with many leaders considering increasing remote work opportunities. Kate Lister, President of Global Workplace Analytics (GWA), estimates that we will see 25-30% of the workforce working at home one or more days a week within the next two years. Lister also describes the waste of space and money in the office that is a result of staff working from home more often. “Employees around the globe are not at their desk 50% to 60% of the time… a typical employer can save about $11,000US per year for every person who works remotely half of the time” she concludes.
What is an Ergonomic Set Up?
The Aura Home Office marries ergonomics and design into one to create the perfect ergonomic workplace. For those that are unfamiliar with the term, ergonomics is the study of the interaction between people and the tools they use. In this case, the furniture. This includes everything from the chairs you sit on, the desk you use and even your posture while typing is a component of ergonomics.
Why is this so important? Cory Porteous, the Director of Marketing at Office Interiors, explains that poor ergonomics can lead to chronic repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) and has repeatedly been one of the most significant workplace risks. In fact, a study by the Norwegian State Institute found that “after the common cold, muscular soreness was the second most common cause of absenteeism at work” (M. Franz Schneider, Ergonomics and Economics). Simply working from your dining room or kitchen barstools isn’t sustainable long term and could lead to serious injuries.
