…favourite chair

Several years ago I went to pick up my friend for dinner at her office, I didn't realize the chair I was sitting on (her chair) was purchased at approximately 1,000 pounds.

There are thousands of employees in her organisation and each of them is sitting on the identical chairs,
it means the organisation invested 2 million pounds for these chairs which their employees are to be sitting on at least 8 hours a day.

The chair was ergonomically design (that's what they claimed), for a computer user, to provide a maximum comfort,
and most importantly, to protect their employees from back pain.

Besides the chair, I was quite sure there must be other working environment-friendly equipments and activities.

I was impressed by the way this organisation was concerning over the well-being of its people, as people are the most vital assets. Even if they have the highest muti-billion cutting edge technologies of computer running the daily operation; without people input, it doesn't save the company from losing business.

So, 1,000 pounds chair makes all the sense; at least in term of asset management.
