The way to boost work productivity with anti-fatigue mats is to use them. Seriously, there’s plenty of research showing that anti-fatigue mats make employees feel better. And we know that there is considerable lost work time from employees who are in pain. All the time. From standing on a hard floor.
However, often employees who are in pain don’t feel like they have enough pain to merit taking the day off. So, they stay at work, but they’re less productive.
Anti-fatigue mats should be wherever you have employees standing in one position all day: for example, at a cashier or on an assembly line or at customer service.
How Do Anti-Fatigue Mats Work?
Anti-fatigue mats are thick and spongy. For those standing on them, the mats promote micro-movements, slight changes in the position of the foot or leg.
These micro-movements help the circulation of those standing on them. Instead of staying in a locked position like you would on a hard floor, the person standing on an anti-fatigue mat is in a constant slight motion.
Moving around slightly instead of standing still is easier on someone’s joints and takes the pressure off of joints and the back. The mats are easier on the feet, too. Your feet hurt if you stand on a rock-hard floor all day.
And employees feel better. This is clear from the research. If they feel better, they will work better.
And it’s a whole lot easier and cheaper for a business to add a few mats than it is to put down new softer flooring.
We have all different kinds of anti-fatigue mats including ones that are chemical-resistant, puncture-resistant, and ones made of recycled materials. They are available in different styles and colors.
You really should try some anti-fatigue mats and see how much better your employees are performing. These mats are just as easy to clean and maintain as other mats. The mats look great and can make a significant different to the bottom line.
