With a degree in Kinesiology specializing in sports medicine, CoreChair CEO and Founder Patrick Harrison has a passion for understanding what the human body needs. The emerging awareness on the perils of sedentary lifestyle coupled with the musculoskeletal damage incurred by desk jockeys, Harrison was inspired by the widespread prevalence of back pain, the negative effects of sedentary lifestyles and the trend towards exercise balls in the office. The amount of static sitting we do in a day contributes to obesity, disease, and back pain. Alternative solutions, such as exercise balls and standing desks were introduced in the absence of sound research and provide little opportunity for physical activity and adequate back support. Studies show it’s no better to stand all day than it is to sit. In efforts to resolve these perils, Patrick designed the CoreChair. CoreChair is an innovative ergonomic active sitting chair that is designed to complement your athletic aspirations and counter the symptoms of Sitting Disease. Comfortably embracing your pelvis, this unique sitting surface allows you to enjoy optimal sitting posture, relieving back pain, without impeding your natural movement with unnecessary tall backs and arm rests.

Why Recognize?

As your business expands and improves, it is vital for a successfully operating company to maintain and retain their quality workforce. Salaries, benefits and work location are the three main aspects to be considered when an employee accepts a job. With the current exodus of trained and qualified staff divided between competitors, what can your organization do to sustain employee satisfaction? How does your business achieve high employee loyalties while still maintaining a budget?

An affirmative work environment in conjunction with acknowledgment helps create positive recognition for loyalty and achievements. This is the number one reason why an employee remains with a single employer. Rewarding an employee on important milestones is an important action strengthening the employee's value and devotion to your organization.

Employee Recognition produces feelings of good will between the employee and employer. Gifts need not be cost prohibitive; however, an extremely successful employee recognition program includes gifts exhibiting a recognized name brand and quality manufactured personal jewellery items with varying precious gems signifying advanced levels achieved by the employee. It is the gesture of receiving a reward that provides the feeling of gratitude felt by the employee, which can restore a bounce in their step for a long time into the future.
