As your employees transition back into the workplace, you want to make this process as stress-free as possible. Have you considered upgrading your breakroom offering to increase comfort and cleanliness?
In speaking with our customers it’s clear that everyone is more concerned than before about keeping their workplace clean. Everyone wants to be as germ-free as possible, but many of the products we depend on for de-germing are hard to come by. So what do you do? Well, we would say, “Don’t panic.”
Remember March? It was going to be such a fun month. The Illini were going to make a long run in the tournament. Opening day for the Cards and Cubs was just around the corner. We were going to drink green beer in a crowded bar full of strangers. Ah, the good ol’ days.
Next thing you knew, you were working from home from your dining room table. Maybe you borrowed a couple pillows from your living room to make those oak dining chairs more comfortable (why are there 18 pillows on your sofa anyway?). Maybe you just struggled through it. Or maybe you even bought an inexpensive chair from a big box. Regardless of how you’ve been coping with your seating situation so far, here are some reasons why now might be a good time to consider investing in a new home office chair.

Oh, February. It’s central Illinois’ most confusing month. Freezing rain and snow one day, spring temperatures the next. Is it just us or does there seem to be a bit of a chill in the air even on those warmer days? (Can heaters get confused?)

Worried you won’t be able to get the purchases approved? We’ve even provided some additional arguments for why you might need these items – just in case “But I’m cold” isn’t enough.

Teamwork makes the dream work, am I right? We’ve seen for a number of years the “open office” trend that involves lowering panel heights (or removing panels all together) and encouraging collaboration amongst employees. So now that more employees are collaborating and working together across departments and teams, companies are realizing that they frequently need to hold small, impromptu meetings throughout the day.
By now, you’ve likely heard the phrase “sitting is the new smoking.” I’m not sure I would personally go that far, but 7 out of 10 office workers do report experiencing some back pain while sitting at their desks.

Even workers whose jobs rely on a heavy amount of collaboration with their colleagues need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the office from time to time.
In conjunction with their annual Day of Action book drive, the United Way of Champaign County is collecting items for their Read. Talk. Play. EVERY DAY kits. These kits help parents and young children love to read and learn together. Rogards is happy to be supporting this campaign to encourage kindergarten readiness and early literacy by donating items needed to make up the kits, and we would like to invite you to help us help the United Way.
