Meet Emma; A life-size doll that represents what office workers will look like in 20 years time according to new research conducted by Fellowes.
Concocted from an amalgamation of research collected from offices across the UK, Germany and France, Emma is a visual representation of ailments we might all face if we don’t drastically reform our unhealthy workplace habits.
The model of ‘Emma’ features glaring ailments caused by the biggest culprits to affect workplace wellbeing:
- A curvature of the spine attributed to years of poor posture and hours of sitting
- Sallow skin from constant exposure to overhead lighting
- Varicose veins due to poor circulation
- A rotund stomach caused by a sedentary lifestyle
- Dry red eyes from staring at the computer screen
- Stress-related Eczema
Whilst Emma looks a bit peaky from her bad habits, we’re remaining positive about the future of workplace wellbeing. The people that we work with have been geared to provide the best workplaces for their staff. With a multifaceted approach of ergonomic office design and better awareness of how to take care of ourselves at work, we can pave a better future for ourselves.
